KNEE PAIN TREATMENT OPTIONS

Your knee is one of the biggest and most complex joints in your body. It connects your thigh and shin bones, allowing for rotation and movement in your legs.

It is often referred to as the joint stuck in the middle with nowhere to go. Being stuck between the hip and the foot poses a problem for the knee, that being when either of those two joints stop working properly it is the knee that suffers the full load.

It is the knee that must twist or move sideways and for a joint that works like a door hinge, which causes problems. At Point Cook Physical, we offer a number of highly-targeted, bespoke knee pain treatment options so you can move and feel better today.

Nobody Needs Knee Pain In Their Life

When our foot strikes the ground our ankle bends. Some people, probably most, have less bending or “dorsiflexion” in our ankles than we should because of all the sitting we do.

That sitting seizes up the ankle, a little. Then as we walk; or run; or throw a ball; the ankle doesn’t bend and the knee once again is asked to bend a little more. And it’s ok doing that but one day when the knee is asked to bend a little bit more and then we have to twist at the same time, BANG!!! We have a knee injury.

The knee is one the most common joints affected by osteoarthritis in the body.

Over time with all that excessive bending in the knee we have repetitive strain. That’s just one small problem, the real problem is that the knee could find itself having to compensate like this for many, many body parts including the hips, the back, the shoulder or even the elbow.
