Knee Pain Physiotherapy | Booragoon & East Fremantle
The amount of people suffering with knee pain is staggering.
Most simply dismiss this pain as ‘wear and tear’ or the eventual decline associated with ageing until this pain becomes so debilitating and they are forced to seek help.
These ‘wear and tear’ aches and pains are NOT normal. No matter what body part they are experienced in. And if they are recurrent aches and pains, it is your body screaming out for you to fix something!
And the earlier that the source of these aches and pains can be addressed, the easier they are to fix.
The Majority of Knee Pain Can Be EASILY Fixed!
At Move Physiotherapy treating knee injuries is our passion. Our physiotherapists have upskilled in the detailed assessment and treatment of knee injuries – ranging from the acute ACL to the degenerative knee.
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.
Did you know the MOST COMMON cause of knee pain, experienced at the front of the knee – a condition called Patellofemoral Knee Pain Syndrome – is resolved within 6-8 weeks of appropriate physiotherapy management.
Your physiotherapist will work with you to restore range of movement, muscle length and strength and thereby improve your pain and function of your knee joint.
Paramount in the rehabilitation of knee injuries, Move Physiotherapy can offer a number of manual therapies including massage and dry needling in addition to supervised exercise rehabilitation, utilising our fully equipped gymnasium.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I Need a Scan Before Attending Physiotherapy?
Your physiotherapist can often diagnose your knee pain without the need for scans such as X-Rays, MRIs or ultrasounds.
However, in some cases – e.g. in the presence of clicking, locking and giving way with meniscal injuries – your physiotherapist can recommend whether a scan is required.
We will never rely purely on your scans to identify your knee pathology. The results of your scans will always be used in conjunction with specific testing around your knee joint to make a diagnosis.
