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.
