Shiatsu for Knee Pain in Bucks County PA
Are you one of an increasing number of people suffering from knee pain?
As our lives have become less active, and we spend more time in sedentary pursuits, our postures have suffered. This affects all the major load-bearing joints in our bodies and poor diets also deprive the associated muscles of important minerals.
Knee problems can not only be extremely painful, but severely impact mobility and activity levels, often resulting in chronic conditions that worsen over time with the lack of movement. Pain can be present even when sitting still.
It is important to restore mobility–and shiatsu is an effective way to enable this, by balancing pressure on the muscles that support the knees.
Qualified and experienced shiatsu practitioners at the Cryo Spa Natural Healing Center in Bucks County PA can help relieve your knee pain.
What’s causing your knee pain?
Your knee pain is likely a result of one or more of the following:
- Impact injury
- Excessive time spent driving
- Excessive sitting in one position
- Your standing posture
Pain often results from pressure on the knee from surrounding muscles, or even remote trigger points that cause pain in the knee area, rather than an internal problem within the joint itself.
The knee joint is supported by 10 large and powerful muscles, as well as several smaller muscles.
These muscles lose elasticity and range of motion over time, and this is compounded by sedentary lifestyles. When the muscles become tight, the area inside the knee joint is compressed, causing knee pain which may even be present when sitting.
Sometimes knee pain is connected to other aches and pains, such as foot pain, aching hips, leg cramps, or low back pain.
How can shiatsu help with knee pain?
We have helped many people in the Bucks County area relieve their knee pain using a combination of shiatsu, trigger points work, and Thai massage stretching.
Even some patients with arthritis in their knees have found pain relief and an improved range of motion by working with our practitioners.
The muscles that we typically focus on with shiatsu are:
- Calf Muscles
- Adductors (inner thigh muscles)
- IT Band (tendon running down the outer leg)
Your shiatsu practitioner will locate the primary reason for the structural imbalance and apply pressure to selective points in the surrounding and supporting muscles. A combination of acupressure, trigger point work, fascial release, and other modalities help clear blockages in your energy meridians and restore balance.
The dietary advice supplied by our practitioners (especially related to nutrients and minerals essential for joint health) will also help you relax, sleep better at night, and maintain optimum health.
