Knee Pain Treatment near Alfred Cove
Physiotherapists are renowned for effectively and quickly treating chronic and acute knee injuries due to their extensive knowledge of the musculoskeletal system. Whether you are young or old, are extremely active or inactive, or whether your knee issue is short or long term, physiotherapy can help you by reducing pain and inflammation and building strength.
Your knees are a vital part of everyday movement and activity, and it is incredibly important to look after them. Knees are vulnerable to injury and physiotherapy can act not only as a treatment for the post injury patient, but also as a preventative measure.
Acute injuries of the knee such as cartilage, cruciate or collateral ligament tears are commonly associated with trauma related to daily living, sports injuries and car accidents. The knee is also prone to more chronic conditions such as arthritis, which often results from poor biomechanics.
Through assessment of the biomechanics of the knee, identification of muscle imbalance or loss in joint motion, the cause of your knee pain can be accurately diagnosed. When accurately diagnosed, the treatment plan will be most effective as the treatment will be specific and best for your condition.
