Knee Rehabilitation

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury and patellofemoral pain are the most common injuries to the knees. Most Knee injuries are generally caused by twisting or bending force applied to the knee, or a direct blow, such as from sports, falls, or accidents. Posture - static malalignment, dynamic malalignment and abnormal muscle activation patterns are common causes of altered neuromuscular control and manifest themselves as knee injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the most common cause of knee pain?

The most common causes of knee pain are related to ageing, injury, or repeated stress on the knee. Common knee problems include sprained or strained ligaments, cartilage tears, tendonitis, or arthritis.

Can problems in your hips cause issues in your knees?

Yes. An imbalance in the hips (weak muscles around the hip complex) can migrate down the thigh and cause pain in the knee. A simple training structure to rebalance the muscles around the hip, easing overactivity/over-compensation of muscles around the hip joints will ease pain in the knee.

What are symptoms of patellofemoral pain?

Also known as runner’s knees, symptoms of pain are likely to increase with activity or prolonged periods of sitting. Pain may be experienced when squatting or climbing the stairs. Specific exercises will be set, to regain strength, endurance, and range of motion.
