Common Knee Pain Issues

  • Knee pain can be caused by a number of issues, whether that be acute injuries involving ligament or cartilage, or overuse including tendinopathy or patellofemoral pain syndrome.
  • Acute injuries to the knee are often caused by direct impact to the knee or contact to the body that results in twisting of the knee or an awkward landing.
  • Chronic knee injuries such as patellar tendinopathy gradually worsen over time and are often associated with impact sports involving running and jumping.
  • Some common causes of knee pain are decreased strength of the leg and hip muscles, balance/control issues and excessive load. 

How a Physiotherapist can help treat Knee Pain

  • Your physiotherapist can help diagnose your knee pain and educate you on this diagnosis. 
  • We work with you to formulate a management plan and help you achieve your goals. 
  • Physiotherapy can help treat your knee pain by identifying contributing factors to your pain and addressing them directly through advice, manual therapy and a targeted exercise program.

Ways to look after your knees to prevent future problems

  • One of the simplest and most effective ways to look after your knees is to exercise. Whether that be walking, running, lifting weights in the gym or playing sport.
  • The compression our knee joint gets from weight bearing activity helps improve the strength of our bones, muscles, cartilage and ligaments.
  • Resistance training is a great way to improve knee health, balance and function in all ages and populations. It also has benefits in improving or maintaining mental, cardiovascular and brain health.
