Knee / Hip Pain
However, given that knee or hip conditions often become chronic, patients may require ongoing maintenance therapy to effectively manage their symptoms and prevent further joint damage. Maintenance therapy for knee or hip conditions involves exercises to sustain joint flexibility and strength, coupled with education regarding proper body mechanics to prevent symptom exacerbation. This is further confirmed by a randomized controlled trial published in the “Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery” that comprises a 12-week course of physiotherapy. This trial proved that maintenance therapy including manual therapy and exercise results in significant improvements in pain, function, and quality of life in patients with hip osteoarthritis. Additionally, patients may derive benefits from ongoing pain management strategies, such as hot/cold therapy or assistive devices like knee braces, which can substantially enhance their pain control and overall quality of life.
