Knee injuries we offer sports therapy for at our Grand Rapids, MI location

Our team knows people often seek sports therapy for knee injuries in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In fact, one source shows that over half of all sports injuries are injuries to the knee.

One knee injury our Advent Physical Therapy team often treats is patellofemoral syndrome. This injury occurs when your knee cap, or patella, rubs against your thigh bone, or femur. Patellofemoral syndrome commonly occurs in many types of athletes. For instance, our team has treated this condition in runners, cyclists, football players and basketball players.

Another knee injury we often help people treat is an ACL injury. Your anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the ligaments found in your knee, and its job is to attach your femur to your shinbone, or tibia. This ligament also helps to stabilize your knee joint during movement. Our team knows that a heavy impact to your knee or a sudden stop can cause an ACL injury when you’re playing sports. These impacts and stops are common in several types of sports, and our team has treated this injury in many football, basketball and soccer players.

When you have a knee injury, our team will design a physical therapy plan for you that may include therapies such as:

  • Thermotherapy
  • Manual therapy
  • Electrical stimulation

The reason that our Advent Physical Therapy team may include these and other therapies in your plan is that we want you to get the greatest benefit from your therapy. We may even be able to reduce your knee pain and reduce the time you spend in therapy.
