Effective physiotherapy treatment for knee pain in Newmarket

Normal daily activities like walking, standing, using the stairs and squatting – in fact any activity where you are on your feet – can be affected if you have knee pain. So having knee pain can be a debilitating and frustrating experience.

Knee pain as a result of the ageing process (osteoarthritis) is common but sudden accidents injuring cartilage and/or the ligaments around the knee (sprains and strains) and overuse injuries affecting the tendons are also frequently seen here at our clinic in Newmarket.

Accurate diagnosis of your knee pain

Swelling, locking, clicking, grating or the feeling that your knee might give way are all common symptoms reported by our patients. The right physiotherapy treatment will be quite different, depending on your condition.

 

So a thorough physical examination is the key to an accurate diagnosis and it’s the reason why we allow an hour for our initial appointments.

Common knee conditions that we treat at our Newmarket Clinic include:

  • Anterior knee pain (at the front, around the knee cap)
  • Tendon problems (Runner’s Knee)
  • Joint sprains (ligament injuries)
  • Patellar Maltracking or Dislocations
  • Muscle tears or strains (hamstrings and quadriceps)
  • Iliotibial Band Pain (ITB)
  • Post-operative rehabilitation (arthroscopy and joint replacements)
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Shin Splints

How a physiotherapist can help with your knee pain

Initially we might recommend treatments to relieve pain and improve joint movement like joint mobilisations, remedial massage, acupuncture, supportive taping and ultrasound. We’ll also advise on the right exercises and the things you can do to help yourself between sessions.

We’ll also advise on the underlying causes and provide you with a corrective programme and plyometrics to get you back to your normal activities quickly and teach you how to prevent injuries before they occur again.
