8 Weeks to Resilient Knees
Our 8-week program fosters knee resilience through a focus on restoring range of motion, gradual exposure to discomfort-inducing positions, and a step-by-step approach to strength training. This enables you to regain the freedom to use your knees without the constraints of pain.
We conduct a weekly telemedicine session to evaluate your progress and adjust your individual program. During this session, we will introduce new exercises for you to practice over the following week. Your physical therapist will subsequently update your app with the exercises tailored to your needs. You have direct access to your therapist, enabling swift resolution of any issues that may arise while you are exercising on your own.
Why 8 Weeks?
Our program spans 8 weeks to align with the typical duration required for notable adaptations in the nervous system, significant increases in muscle strength through hypertrophy, and substantial enhancements in flexibility. All these factors decrease knee pain and improve your ability to engage in your hobbies.
The Persistent Therapy Difference:
Highly personalized care: One-on-one sessions allow for highly personalized care. We can focus exclusively on your knees, tailoring treatment plans to your specific knee pain and progress each time we meet.
Empowerment: You actively participate in your own recovery, gaining a better understanding of your condition and how to manage it. This empowerment leads to better long-term knee health.
Close monitoring: Our program utilizes a user-friendly online app to enhance your exercise experience and optimize your progress. Here’s how it works:
Personalized Exercise Plan: When you begin your physical therapy journey with us, your therapist will create a personalized exercise plan tailored to your specific knee and goals.
Scheduled Workouts: The app will provide you with a schedule for your workouts, specifying which exercises to complete on each day. You’ll be able to view your upcoming workouts, making it easy to plan when you can get your exercise in based on your schedule.
Exercise Tracking: As you complete your exercises, you can record your progress directly in the app. This includes the number of repetitions, sets, and any additional notes or feedback you want to share with your therapist.
Communication with Your Therapist: One of the most valuable features o the app is the ability to communicate with your physical therapist. You can ask questions, report any issues or concerns, and receive feedback on your progress. Your therapist can also adjust your exercise plan as needed based on your feedback and progress.
Backed by Data
A study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy (JOSPT) in 2017 found that exercise therapy, including strengthening and neuromuscular training, led to significant improvements in pain and function for patients with knee osteoarthritis.
A systematic review published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine in 2015 concluded that exercise therapy for knee pain, such as patellofemoral pain syndrome, not only reduced pain and improved function in the short term but also provided long-term benefits.

Research published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2013 compared physical therapy with arthroscopic surgery for patients with a meniscal tear and osteoarthritis of the knee. The study found that physical therapy was as effective as surgery in improving pain and function.
