Pain, burning, sharp pain, weakness, popping/crunching sounds and loss of mobility are all symptoms of knee issues.
Whether you have injured your knee in the past, are a current or former athlete or are just experiencing pain for unknown reasons, knee pain impacts our lives greatly. You may have scar tissue from an injury or prior surgical procedure, arthritis or strains from repetitive motions. IT band tightness and misalignment of the body may be contributing factors of pain.
How Will Massage Help
Massage can definitely help to alleviate the pain. Massage is a conservative modality that is a great resource before (temporary) steroid injections or even more permanent surgical procedures have been recommended. With a dedicated treatment regimen many clients have felt enough relief from massage to defer other treatment option and manage pain levels with significantly less to little or no pain.
