Knee Pain

Knee pain can be debilitating, affecting your daily activities and quality of life. One effective treatment option is physiotherapy. Physiotherapy for knee pain aims to reduce pain, improve mobility, and restore function through a variety of techniques and exercises.

The first step in physiotherapy is a thorough assessment by a qualified physiotherapist. They will evaluate your knee joint, assess muscle strength, flexibility, and range of motion, and identify any underlying causes of your pain. Based on this assessment, a customized treatment plan will be developed to address your specific needs.

Physiotherapy treatment for knee pain may include manual therapy techniques such as joint mobilisation and soft tissue massage to reduce pain and improve joint movement. Therapeutic exercises play a crucial role in strengthening the muscles around the knee, improving stability, and promoting proper alignment. These exercises may include stretching, strengthening, and balance exercises.

In addition to exercises, physiotherapists may use modalities such as heat or cold therapy, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, or laser therapy to further alleviate pain and promote healing. They may also provide education on proper posture, body mechanics, and techniques to prevent further injury.

The frequency and duration of physiotherapy sessions will depend on the severity of your knee pain and your individual progress. Your physiotherapist will closely monitor your condition and modify the treatment plan as needed to ensure optimal results.

Physiotherapy for knee pain is a holistic approach that not only focuses on treating the symptoms but also addresses the underlying causes of pain. By improving strength, flexibility, and function, physiotherapy can help you regain control of your life and get back to doing the activities you love. So, if knee pain is holding you back, consider consulting a physiotherapist and explore the benefits of physiotherapy for knee pain relief.

This is probably the best physio practice I've been to. I've been to other 'professional' physios that provide treatment for the sake of appearing to do something. The first session is generally a consultation to examine the issues. The ongoing advice and treatment is fantastic."
