Hip and knee injuries may occur due to altered biomechanics, excessive load or as a result of a traumatic injury. Treatment to ease pain may include joint mobilising, dry needling, taping, hydrotherapy, home/gym exercises and activity modification.
Improving your buttock strength and weight loss will help with knee arthritis symptoms and help avoid knee replacement surgery. Finding the right starting point for exercises for you is our speciality.
Common knee conditions seen are:
- Knee meniscal injuries
- Knee ligament or tendon injuries
- Knee bursitis
- Knee osteoarthritis
Adolescent knee may experience rapid growth spurts causing muscle imbalances and pain. The kneecap or just below the knee where the patella tendon attaches (Osgood Schlatters) can cause pain. Knee taping, bracing or foot orthotics will allow you to continue with sport and help with strengthening exercises to improve your pain.
