A Message From Owner and Operator
Dr. Brandon Evans
Does This Sound Familiar?
Are you worried about knee pain that doesn't go away no matter how much you try?
Are you frustrated with other treatments that haven't worked?
Are you struggling to keep up with your workouts and missing out on your hobbies?
Are you looking for a long term solution so you can have your life back?
Are you tired of not being listened to and then handed pain pills to fix every problem?
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!
If you are living with painful and achy knees and have been told it is “wear and tear” or it is “IT band syndrome” please continue to read…
Have you been trying stretches, exercises, icing, and videos that you found on youtube to solve your knee pain but have not had any luck? You are not alone, a lot of individuals that we see at ProActive Physical Therapy and Wellness have said the same thing. I want you to rest assured that something can be done to address this aggravating problem.
Does This Sound Like You?
In our clinic the story typically goes something like this…“I started having knee pain “X” months ago but over time the pain has gotten worse. It almost seems like the pain came out of nowhere because I can’t remember any specific injury. I went to see my MD and was told that my knees are in bad shape and it’s my age. I was also told that I needed to take it easy and stop exercising, running, etc…I was prescribed pain medication and/or offered an injection in my knee which gave me temporary relief but the pain returned. I am starting to think that this is my new “normal” which makes me unhappy because I feel that I am too young to be dealing with this pain. I know that I don’t want surgery and I am afraid of taking pain pills because I know that they can be addicting. I just want my life back. I just want to be able to walk through the grocery store, exercise, and play with my (grand) children without knee pain”. If this sounds like you, I want you to know that something can be done to provide lasting results other than pain medication, surgery, or injections.

What if I told you that most knee pain can be resolved with treating the muscles in the Hips and the Feet. That’s RIGHT!!! Most of the muscles that surround and stabilize the knee actually originate in the hips thus it is paramount to strengthen the hips in order to address knee pain. Also improper shoe wear, flat feet, or overarched feet can also play a role in knee pain.
If you are ready to start your journey to FINALLY achieve long lasting results, I want to offer you a Completely FREE, No Obligation discovery session to determine how ProActive Physical Therapy and Wellness can help get you back to being Active without knee pain!
You see, many people with knee pain in Louisville suffer unnecessarily because they’re told…
Just “rest it” and it’ll be fine (then months later they’re still suffering…)
It’s “normal” with women and men my age to suffer with knee pain
If you take some pills everything will be fine.
Knee surgery is the only option.
The Truth is....
Resting it doesn’t change anything. You might get a small temporary relief, but then when you get active again you’ll still be suffering from knee pain (I bet you’ve already experienced it!)
It’s not normal to get knee pain as you get older!
Pain pills are addicting, dangerous, and can cause a lot of other problems with your body.
Knee surgery is not the only option. It’s just the only option your surgeon can offer you.
Talk To A Therapist On The Phone
At ProActive Physical Therapy, We Help Active Adults Get Back to Working Out and Enjoying an Active Lifestyle Without Surgery and Costly Procedures!
It can be very confusing to decide exactly exactly what you should do if you have knee pain. You’ve likely heard a lot of options such as…
A family member tells you that it’s normal and “just happens” when you get older
A colleague mentions going to a chiropractor
The “experts” on YouTube recommend doing a certain exercise
A friend suggests going to a new type of exercise class
All while the doctor tells you to guzzle pain pills
At ProActive Physical Therapy, we’ve created a 5 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.
- Step 1 -
Laying the Groundwork
Most physical therapy clinics are not attentive, they’re fast paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt.
This is why our first step is to listen to you story.
After working with countless people with knee pain, 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.
- Step 2 -
We Find Out WHY Your Knee Pain Started
We understand the unease we all inevitably feel when committing to something new or unfamiliar. We want our clients to be comfortable with their decision to receive ProActive care! During these Discovery Visits, we sit down with you, one-on-one, listen to your story, examine you, answer any questions you have, and we let you know what’s going on and what can be done to alleviate it.
If you are still skeptical and unsure if physical therapy is right for you…that’s fine. That is why we created the Discovery Session.
- Step 3 -
Customized Program To Help You Ease Knee Pain and Restore Your Mobility
People are usually told to stretch or given a sheet of exercises from doctors for their knee pain. But the problem is, moving or stretching irritated muscles can only increase the pain! Without proper guidance, doing the WRONG stretches or exercises can make the situation worse. It is critical that BEFORE you start to stretch or exercise it is important to alleviate pain with movement.

Retrain Your Brain-Body Connection
Most people think that once the pain is gone, the body is healed. This is simply not true! Most people don’t realize that chronic pain causes your body to develop bad compensation habits.
Examples of these”compensations” might be:
*Using you hands to push on your thighs to stand up after you’ve bent forward to pick something up from the ground.
*Putting more weight to one side of the body because of increased pain when standing too long.
*Using momentum to stand upright from a bed, or out of a chair, because of achiness or pain.
Why Does This Happen?
*Because the brain interprets certain movements as harmful when you have pain!
*Most knee pain exercises you see on YouTube, or learn from traditional physical therapy, only focuses on building strength or increasing mobility, they do nothing to restore the very critical brain-body connections.
*At ProActive Physical Therapy, our exercise program offers much more than a “sheet of strength exercises”, or some mobility stretches
We do this by giving you complete one-on-one focused attention in every single movement that applies to your goals.
This Will Allow You To:
*Restore your confidence in performing ALL movements that you were fearful of doing throughout the day
*Return to exercising with PROPER guidance so you don’t have to worry about hurting yourself again
*Develop ‘Brain-Body Awareness’ so you are able to self-correct any improper movement during exercise
- Step 5 -
Optimize Your Quality Of Life
Our best clients are people who are motivated and committed to becoming active again, even if they sometimes feel stuck in their current situation.
If you are willing to put in some effort and open to learning about your body, and you are ready to get back to the quality of life you deserve, then ProActive PT would be a great fit for you.
You Can Expect:
*A life where you can sit and drive without knee pain, or having to pull over every 20 minutes to stretch
*A life where you can bend forward to pick things off the floor, without having to sit down from pain
*Get back to exercising without having to worry about hurting yourself again
*Be able to play with your kids or grand kids, without having to slow down or take pain pills
*Be able to get a restful sleep and wake up with less pain and more energy
*Return to your pre-injury active lifestyle, without having to rely on pills, injections, creams, or surgery
