Typically knee pain and injury is caused by trauma or wear and tear of the ligaments, the meniscus or the muscles and joint surfaces. After careful assessment and consultation with you we put in place a personalised treatment plan that can consist of manual physiotherapy and strength exercises. Many knee injuries are actually the result of poor biomechanics and are easily treated with retraining of correct movement patterns. Even degenerative conditions such as arthritis are known to respond well to exercise therapy .
Knee injuries that we can treat include:
- Meniscal or Cartilage Tears
- Iliotibial band syndrome
- Patellofemoral pain syndrome
- Fat pad impingement
- Ligament deficiency (eg ACL , PCL or medial and lateral ligaments)
