Physical therapy is an effective treatment for knee osteoarthritis.
Current guidelines from the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons recommends that non-surgical management of osteoarthritis of the knees should include physical therapy, NSAIDS, and in certain cases, tramadol (an analgesic/antidepressant).
Patients who receive physical therapy can expect medical costs to be as much as 45% lower than other non-surgical methods such as injections, with relief that is equal to or better than other treatments.
Idaho is a direct access state, meaning that you can see a physical therapist without a physician’s referral. If your insurance requires it, however, Body Balance Physical Therapy will work with your doctor to facilitate insurance benefits.
