"Is your knee pain slowing you down during your daily activities or your workouts? Do you find yourself limping up and down the stairs?"
A Personal Message From Specialist Physical Therapist, Jamie So
If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, you are in the right place!
Many people within Northern Virginia suffer unnecessarily with knee pain and stiffness because they’re told…
The Truth Is...
“At Manual Therapy Effects, We Specialize In Helping Active, Working 40+ Year Olds Get Back to the Workouts and Sports They Love Without Drugs, Injections, or Surgery.”
It’s overwhelming to try to make a decision with all these choices. What will happen if you don’t make the right one?
Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. This isn’t an uncommon story I hear. They think “maybe it will go away”, or that they don’t have time to deal with their knee pain, it’s not THAT bad.
Then they get to a point where it’s screaming at them months later after they have compensated and suffered to MAYBE do something about it.
When It Comes To Solving Something Serious Like Knee Pain
You must choose the right provider for your health. If you don’t, you could end up getting dangerous surgery (when it was unnecessary) or being dependent on addicting painkillers the rest of your life. Or simply suffering and living with it as your “new normal”. There isn’t anything normal about knee pain.
Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you stopping your knee pain and stiffness and keeping it from ever coming back.
To do that, you have to not just treat the pain, but have a provider who is willing to figure out WHY the pain happened in the first place. That’s when you’ll get a PERMANENT solution to your problems.
At Manual Therapy Effects, we’ve created a 3 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.
Step #1 - We Want to Listen to Your Story
Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to get to talk to the doctors for 10 minutes (if THAT!) before they have to run to the next patient and you’re left sitting there wondering, “What just happened?”
Even worse, most physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt or even think about your specific issue to genuinely help you get relief. They hope to throw a bunch of generic exercises at you and treat your symptoms in the event that maybe something resolves your pain.
This is why our first step is to listen to your story.
After working with lots of people with knee pain and stiffness, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain.
That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life. If it’s important to you, then it’s important to us!
Step #2 - Find Out WHY Knee Pain Started
Many people have a diagnosis, or medical term for what’s going on with their body. Maybe their doctor gave it to them, maybe tests showed the diagnosis, or maybe you found it online.
You could have been told that your only choice was to rest, do some generic stretching exercises, it’s age, live with it, taking pain pills or getting an injection.
Sometimes, those things bring temporarily relief, but they’re not addressing what CAUSED the problem in the first place.
Every person’s cause of knee pain and stiffness is different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing as another person.
Our goal at Manual Therapy Effects is to find that original cause of your pain and help you understand what’s going on, so not only does your knee pain go away, it STAYS AWAY!
We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if physical therapy is right for you. That’s why we created a FREE “Meet and Greet Discovery Session”. (Yes! That means the first session is ON US!)
Our Meet and Greet Discovery Sessions are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the Meet and Greet Discovery Session, you’ll find out what’s wrong, how long it’s going to take to fix it, and give you peace of mind that your problem can be fixed naturally!
