Knee Injury Prevention Resources
Did you know that physical therapy early on can help prevent more severe injury? The following studies address how to prevent knee injuries:
- This study discusses increased risk of severe knee injury for female soccer players who start the soccer season with a minor knee complaint
- This study demonstrates good reliability in a real time screening for high knee injury risk with landing from a jump by coaches, trainers, physicians and physical therapists, for young athletes.
- This paper demonstrates which risk factors are significant and what to watch out for. Decreased balance on one leg, not bending knees/hips when landing from a jump, and overly bending ankles when landing from a jump can increase of ankle and knee injuries in for indoor team athletes.
Do you offer custom foot orthotics?
No, but we may recommend over-the-counter insoles if deemed necessary.
Do I need a referral to see a physical therapist?
Yes. Hall Health Center requires a referral to see a physical therapist.
- The referral must be faxed to our referral coordinator at (206) 616-1320 before the first appointment is scheduled.
- Please call the referral coordinator at (206) 616-7596 to make sure the referral has been processed.
Do you end up treating me, or teaching me what to do at home?
Both. One of the great advantages of seeing a physical therapist is that you can learn things about your body that can stay with you forever. Whether it’s how to properly stretch a particular muscle, strengthen your abdominal muscles, properly run, sit with proper posture, or fit a bicycle, we can help you. Remember, preventive medicine is the best medicine.
