Knee pain or knee injuries are extremely common, and there are many causes. It is important to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your knee pain or injury so that appropriate treatment can be directed at the cause. Knee pain can arise from soft tissue injuries eg ligament sprains and muscle strains, bone conditions eg knee arthritis, Osgood Schlatters, and biomechanical dysfunction eg Patellofemoral syndrome. It may even be referred from your sciatica!
Knee pain has many causes and your knee treatment varies considerably depending on an accurate diagnosis. Treatment can involve simple knee mobilisation techniques, massage, taping, stretches or strengthening exercises all the way through to a thorough rehabilitation protocol post knee reconstruction or knee replacement.
Please consult your physiotherapist or doctor for the most accurate diagnosis and best treatment for your knee pain.

Knee Pain Treatment
At PhysioWorks, we have several our highly skilled physiotherapists with a special interest in knee pain and joint injury. Traditionally, most knee pain conditions have often been treated with only short-term aims in mind. e.g. cortisone injections or painkillers.
One of the differences that you'll notice with PhysioWorks treatment is the thorough analysis of WHY you actually have your knee pain, rather than only treating your symptomatic pain. We strongly believe that if you don't correct why you are vulnerable to knee pain then it is only a matter of time before your knee pain returns.
Research findings have modified modern physiotherapy treatment approaches to knee pain. Together with a thorough knee and lower limb assessment, your knee treatment can progress quickly to get you pain-free and performing your normal sport or daily activities in the shortest time possible.
