How We Treat Knee Pain

We Aim To Ease Your Knee Pain

We get on top of your pain quickly as humanly possible – using a variety of methods that are designed to reduce muscle spasm – increase mobility – decrease inflammation & break up scar tissue.

Rehab Exercises for Knee Pain

The best exercises for knee pain are usually ones that restore and maintain greater muscle strength of your ankles, knees & hips in the longer term. Doing rehab with us does require a level of commitment to have any real value, but the benefits can be more than worth it. 

We Preform Computerised Gait Analysis For Knee Pain

We use Gait Analysis to identify the weaknesses & imbalances that cause knee pain, should you wish to address them. Issues with foot alignment during walking and running can be a major factor in persistent knee pain. 

Orthotics Or Insoles For Those Who Need Them

We sometimes prescribe custom orthotics – to prevent ongoing strain in the tissues of the knee. If you have issues with the way you bear weight through your feet – it can seriously affect your knees.

Knee Pain Causes

Human knees bear a huge amount of stain during the course of an active life. Knees are also very susceptible to injury and pain conditions. Become better informed on the underlying causes of knee pain by reading our guide.

Knee Pain Treatment

There are as many treatments for knee pain as there are causes of knee pain. The trick to effective treatment of knee pain is knowing what combination of treatments work together, to bring relief in your particular case.

Knee Pain Exercises

Most knee pain sufferers have an underlying weakness in the muscles that support their knee, they also tend to have some loss of knee joint mobility. Our in-depth exercise prescriptions tackle both these issues head-on.

Knee Pain FAQs

Massage is great, especially in areas where we have stubborn pain. The likelihood of you doing any harm by massaging a knee that you have pain in is low, as long as it isn’t freshly injured or infected in any way. If you have persistent knee pain massage can be an excellent way to manage pain levels and promote blood flow in the tissues. 

The best exercises for knee pain are ones that strengthen the stabilising muscles of the entire foot, leg & hip. Being more specific, these type of exercises are those that carefully and persistently challenge your ability to balance and bear weight in a coordinated way. 

For many with a history of knee pain it won’t be possible to do this kind of rehab comfortably and safely until your pain is under control via effective treatment methods. 

See someone who has the professional training and experience to make that call for you. The only way to confirm the presence of arthritis in the knee 100% is with x Ray. A practitioner who is up to date with ‘best practices’ for knee pain will not want to order x Rays simple because you have knee pain. The first step towards diagnosing knee arthritis is a comprehensive history and physical exam, this does lead to x rays in some instances
