Knee Pain

There are many forms of knee pain that we can experience. These can often be either gradual onset or from an acute injury. Gradual onset knee pain may include:

  • Patella Femoral Pain (knee cap pain)
  • Patella or Quads Tendinitis
  • Fat pad or Bursa related pain
  • Osgood Schlatters Disease
  • Degenerative meniscal damage
  • Joint inflammation (OA)
  • Bone Bruising

Acute Injuries may include the following:

  • ACL
  • PCL
  • Medial or lateral ligaments
  • Meniscal tears or Cartilage injuries

It is important to have an experienced Sports Physiotherapist from the team at Complete Balance perform a detailed assessment in order to accurately diagnose your condition.

Once your Complete Balance Physiotherapist has diagnosed your knee pain, they will outline a treatment management plan for you. This may include:

  • Hands on treatment
  • Taping
  • Imaging – MRI, X – Ray
  • Unloading strategies
  • Normatec Compression
  • Compex Muscle Stimulation
  • Rehabilitation exercises
  • Gym based Strength supervised Rehabilitation classes

With any knee injury it is important to work on the joints and muscles above and below the knee for full function. Your Physiotherapist will prescribe a detailed rehabilitation program for you. You may also qualify for our gym based rehabilitation classes for further guidance & supervision.
