Knee pain-am I getting better? @ComstockPT #kneepain

I am happy to report my knee is about 80% better. I still have pain with a full squat, or fully kneeling, but have a lot less pain in sitting, with stairs and other activities that were painful.

What caused my pain? I haven’t had any injury to the right knee, in fact I have injured my left knee. I tend to use my right leg as my strong leg, and as a result I overuse my right hamstrings. This has caused the hamstrings and the IT band to become short and tight, eventually straining both my right hip muscles, right my knee and compressing the sciatic nerve.

What’s helped? Physical Therapy with Joyce Mills MPT OCS for strengthening the medial quad, stretching the hamstrings, IT band and calf muscles and deep massage with an instrument used by the therapist to help the muscles relax.

Come to @ComstockPT to get your #musclesinsync and feel better!
