Are you suffering from Knee Pain?
Knee pain may be caused from a number of reasons and sources. Acute traumatic injuries can produce fractures, ligament sprains (eg. ACL, MCL), meniscal tears and osteochondral injuries. Overload of structures in and around the knee can be related to training errors, biomechanical factors and related to other areas above or below the knee. Also other areas can refer pain into the knee area including the hip and lumbar spine.
Depending on the nature of your knee problem will then determine the optimal management. Your physio will provide a thorough assessment to help treatment planning which may include bracing/ taping, specific exercises, hydrotherapy, manual and soft tissue therapies as well as activity advice and referral where indicated.
