Whether it’s the result of overuse, osteoarthritis or an accident, knee pain can severely limit your general mobility. In addition, knee pain can also affect your work and overall performance on the sporting field.
Wellers Hill knee physio
That’s why many patients immediately contact us here at Wellers Hill Physiotherapy. Our qualified physiotherapists perform a detailed clinical assessment to generate a comprehensive diagnosis. Using this approach, they are able to identify all the contributing factors to tailor an effective treatment approach to the patients’ knee injuries.
The causes and contributing factors may widely vary from patient to patient. That’s because different knee conditions exist such as:
- Due to osteoarthritis (caused by injury, overuse or even because of our genes)
- Kneecap (patellofemoral) pain
- Patellar tendinopathy
- Ligamentous strain
- Rupture or orthopaedic repair
- Acute hamstring/ quadriceps muscle strains or tears
With this wide variety of causes, a detailed clinical assessment is indeed required to design a specific treatment for the patient. Physiotherapists should be able to identify all the contributing factors and then provide tailored hands-on treatment which may incorporate the following:
- Massage and/or dry needling to improve flexibility, pain & swelling
- Joint mobilisation to improve your joints movement
- Taping, compression or bracing to support the injured joint
- Guidance with work/recreational positions and what activities to rest
- Specific exercise to stretch inflexible areas, encourage motion to facilitate healing and improve your strength and mechanics
It’s a close collaboration between the patient and the physiotherapists. It’s an ongoing treatment so the patient will even stay well and remain physically active.
For 25+ years, we’ve become a valuable member of the Wellers Hill / Tarragindi community. This has been made possible by the many doctors, medical specialists, sporting clubs, school communities and local businesses in the area.
Our qualified physiotherapists work closely with professionals, elderly people, athletes and injured patients so that these people can again get physically active and conquer the sporting field. With improved mobility the patients will also be able to exercise more and become a more valuable member of an organisation or the entire community.
