7 Simple Ways to Relieve Knee Pain and Stiffness Without Needing Painkillers, Injections or Braces
How To Put An End To Your Knee Pain, Get Stronger & Stay Active, WITHOUT Risking Surgery, WITHOUT Relying On Pain Pills & Without Missing Out On The Activities You Love!
If you're living with bad knees, they're painful or they ache - it's very easy to think it's "just something that comes with age", it's a bit of "wear and tear", or that it's nothing and it will go away on its own.
You can't quite put your finger on why you're feeling so much pain in your knees - but it doesn't seem to be getting any better!
If that's happening to you, you're not alone - we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, Knee Pain is one of THE most common problems that we see at Hybrid PT.
When it comes to living with knee pain, everyone wants to know…
✔ "Why is this happening to me?"
✔ "Why am I still suffering with knee pain after putting up with it for 6 months (maybe more)?"
✔ "Why has just resting not fixed my knee pain?"
✔ "Will I ever get back to the workouts and activities I love without pain?”
Most people think that when they get Knee Pain, it’s just going to go away on it’s own.
That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, it’ll be as if Knee Pain never happened… But then 6 months later you’re still living with nagging pain - often even worse than it was when it came on.
Does That Sound Like You?
Another scenario we see all the time in our Physical Therapy Clinic is when people go to their Doctors, and the Doctor tells them to rest and “try these painkillers" and “get an MRI”.
But this is rarely ever good advice and often 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the Doctor again because it is not any better. Worse, they’re often given yet another prescription of even stronger pills, and advised MORE rest or maybe a knee brace. This makes no sense and explains why so many people are suffering with chronic knee pain that won't go away.
Has This Type Of Thing Happened To You?
Maybe you are confused because you've been told different things by different people. Maybe you think you have to rest because you've been told walking makes knee pain worse, or that you should be doing "this exercise" to make it better.
It's very confusing to know exactly what to do - and that's just to avoid making knee pain worse!
And because of this confusion - this often leads people to procrastinate and put off making a decision about what to do to help fix their knee pain. Worse, many people just end up accepting it as "part of life" - as if it's normal, as if it has to be that way.
Is This How You Feel Too?
If You're Currently Living With Knee Pain, Here Are A Few Reasons It Could Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:
❌ You thought it would go away on it's own...but it didn't.
❌ The Doctor told you to rest and take painkillers - but the pills did nothing to help the cause, and as soon as they wore off, your knee pain came back.
❌ A family member, or friend, told you that everybody gets knee pain as they get older, so you just accepted it.
❌ You tried other treatments, even Physical Therapy in the past, but it didn't seem to help, so you think it won't work now.
❌ Relying on Google or YouTube for exercises that didn’t make any difference, or maybe even made your knee pain worse!
❌ You thought it would be a good idea to rest because your knee pain was so bad, but all that did was make it feel even more stiff and tight.
❌ You decided to get a few massages, thinking that would ease and fix the pain. But all that did was make it feel nice and relaxed, but did nothing to fix it long term.
If any of this has happened to you, we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with a Doctor of Physical Therapy to find out what can be done to help you. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work - you are closer to finding the thing that does!

What Can I Do To Get Rid Of My Knee Pain Quickly?
Here are 4 things you can do that will help you end Knee Pain and feel free:
1) First off, you need to make a decision about getting help. So many people rest for weeks, hoping that the pain will ‘just go away with time’, but then 6 months down the line they’re still putting up with it, and nothing’s changed…or the pain has gotten worse.
2) Next, do the RIGHT exercises - one of the best things to help you ease your knee pain is to do the right series of progressed exercises. The right exercises given to you by a Knee specialist will help reduce pain, and allow you to move freely again quickly - and make sure that the problems don’t come back any time soon.
3) Avoid long periods of rest - the truth is that our bodies were designed to move. While certain activities like running or lifting may bother your knee right now, that doesn't mean that restricting all movement is what you need to be doing. In fact, it might be the very thing that makes your knee pain worse. If certain movements are painful, it's important to find the root cause and get you moving properly so you can continue staying active without knee pain.
4) Get real, “hands-on” and customized treatment - Customized physical therapy treatment is proven to help people with knee pain. In fact at Hybrid PT, it’s one of the most common issues we see people aged 30+ living with. If your knee pain is affecting your job, if it stops you from keeping active, or if it threatens your independence and gets in the way of spending quality time with family and friends - high quality and customized treatment can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible.

Success Stories of Those Who WERE Suffering From Knee Pain
When I had met James, he was working with other patients, and I had been incredibly envious of their experience. He was thorough and very vigilant for the entire duration of time he spent with them. When I injured my knee again, I knew that James was the person I needed to see to ensure it wouldn’t happen in the future. My experience at Hybrid PT was far better than any other Physical Therapy practice I have been to. The facility is neat, clean and you don’t have to worry about bumping into other patients when exercising. Further, James takes a different approach to the traditional PT strategy (where you don’t spend a lot of time with the therapist because they squeeze in as many patients as possible). Instead, James dedicates the full hour to monitoring your form and ensuring the body is functioning as it should while you perform each exercise. This approach demonstrates his commitment to seeing to it that each patient gets all the help they need from him during his time with them in the healing process. He completely understands the mechanics of the body and will take the time to thoroughly answer any questions you may have. You’ll be impressed with the knowledge he has to share! Beyond that, he knows the difficulties patients experience as they embark on each exercise. His outgoing personality and sense of humor make the physically challenging hour more enjoyable. He does everything he can to make you feel comfortable and accommodates his schedule to fit best with your availability. I am grateful for James and my experience at Hybrid PT, and I know his work has enabled me to gain strength to help prevent future injury. Thank you, James!!
James Park has been my Physical Therapist since 2014 until the present. In 2014, I severely shattered my left hip and femur and went to James 3 times a week for almost a year. It is my sincere belief that if it wasn’t for James, I would not have successfully recovered and regained the full use of my left leg. In February 2017, I shattered my right patella and have been seeing James for that major injury (which also had an adverse effect on my previous left hip problem) from that February date to the present. Once again, it was due to his expertise and skills that my knee functions as well as it does. There are no words to describe his outstanding abilities and unbelievable knowledge as a physical therapist, and most importantly, it is the sincere interest, compassion and one-on-one personal attention that James gives to each of his clients that makes him THE BEST! James Park has my 100% recommendation.
"James is a phenomenal PT. One of his greatest attributes is that he listens to his patients and puts together a plan that fulfill his patients’ needs. Whether you are an average person simply trying to improve quality of life, or a competitor trying to recover from injury, James will know the correct path. I had knee pain for several months and he was able to PROPERLY diagnose the issue. The issue wasn’t that my knee was bothering me, but that other parts of my movement system weren’t moving correctly. You always want to find a physical therapist that doesn’t “chase the symptom”, but instead finds the ROOT cause of the problem. James has followed up with me several times since my time with him. He truly cares about each and every one of his patients. I highly recommend his services."
