Knees are a vital part of your body’s machinery. They are responsible for your mobility and, being a weight-bearing joint, can be put through a tremendous amount of stress and strain on a daily basis. Knee pain is a common symptom which can occur in people of all ages and all forms of life, from office workers to high performance athletes.
We are interested in finding and rectifying the underlying cause of your symptom, not just providing a short-term fix. Correct treatment of knee conditions can help to prevent future relapses and irritations of the original problem.
In most cases knee problems are isolated to one area, however there may be a possibility that the pain and/or stiffness you are experiencing in your knees are resulting from incorrect function of other areas of the body. These can include lower back, hip, pelvic, foot, or ankle issues. A Podiatrist can help identify what areas will require treatment and rehabilitation in order to correct the overall problem in these cases. If any further scans or referrals are required we can point you in the right direction to receive ongoing care. We often work with a variety of health professionals including general practitioners, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, exercise physiologists, and personal trainers.
