We know that pain changes the structure of muscles in the form of in size, fat content and fibre type. We also know that these morphological changes cause changes in the behaviour of the muscles, which leaves them more fatigued, weaker and less control and therefore less able to control the joint.

For this reason we concentrate very hard on improving the muscle control and the knee when you come for treatment. Knee pain can come from many sources including:

  • The patellofemoral joint
  • The cartilage
  • The bursae
  • The ligaments
  • The muscles and joints
  • The tendons

As mentioned when treating the knee we often use a lot of muscle rehabilitation techniques. Other treatment includes:

  • Electrotherapy
  • Massage
  • Stretches
  • Tape
  • Balance retrain
  • Gait analysis
