How to treat injured knees. Part 2

Greeting Potential Next Level Fitness Client,

In the last blog I was discussing how to prevent knee injury. In this blog I want to discuss more specifically what treatments are available to help you recover from knee discomfort. 

Listed below are some common approaches to treating and injured knee

 

  • rest
  • OTC ( over-the-counter) medicatications
  • compression
  • pain relief
  • elevation
  • ice
  • wrap

 

However, it depends upon the traumatic event that is causing this pain. Such as;

 

  • Twisting
  • Landing awkward
  • Being run into
  • Falling
  • Slipping
  • Bumping into something

These are a few of the incidents that befall those who experience knee pain. Some of these injuries can result in having medical procedures.

Here is general outline of treatments you can perform on a injured knee ( if serious seek medical attention immediately! )

 

  1. if it's a bump or bruise : rest ice, compression and elevation can be beneficial.
  2. if there is swelling, lack of movement or pain in general that warrants a trip to the doctor.

Depending upon the above scenario. Once a successful treatment has been initiated. All the participants will need some form of strength training to help them recover fully from any injuries they might be having residual discomfort.

A structured fitness program that involves

  • flexibility
  • aerobic conditioning
  • a measured gradual strength training sessions

Can make a world of difference to minimize an injury becoming chronic and maximum you strength to prevent it from reoccurring or getting worse.
