Knee Problems

Knee problems are very common, and they occur in people of all ages and can place unwanted restrictions on your daily life. The knee joint is particularly vulnerable to damage and pain because it takes the full weight of your body and any extra force when you run or jump.

There are many causes, but accurate management of the problem relies upon accurate diagnosis.

 

The knee is the joint where the bones of the upper leg meet the bones of the lower leg, allowing hinge-like movement while providing stability and strength to support the weight of the body.

Flexibility, strength, and stability are needed for standing and for motions like walking, running, crouching, jumping, and turning.

 

Several kinds of supporting and moving parts, including bones, cartilage, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, help the knees do their job. Each of these structures is subject to disease and injury. When a knee problem affects your ability to do things, it can have a big impact on your life. Knee problems can interfere with many things, from participation in sports to simply getting up from a chair and walking.

A detailed assessment can help to identify the cause of your knee problems and enable us to plan a treatment, stretching and strengthening plan. This will assist in creating strength, agility and mobility whilst speeding up recovery times.

 

Assessment and Treatment can be carried out either at our clinic in Rotherham or in your own home. Our Physiotherapists and Rehabilitation Technicians are trained in specialised hands on treatment techniques and approaches, specific to the treatment of Neurological and Musculoskeletal conditions.
