Reoccurring knee injuries?

Don’t you hate it when you’ve just returned to sport and that same old injury pops up again? 

It could be coming from your foot or hip. Have you had these areas checked? 

 

That niggling knee pain that has been bothering you on and off for years but you just can’t get to the bottom of it. Despite relief with physio treatment, nothing seems to help in the long run. Maybe it’s time to treat the big picture?

 

When we were young, we all sang that song… “The hip bones connected to the, knee bone. The Knee bones connected to the, ankle bone. (ok admit it….you sang it in your head as your read it!) This theory can not only be applied in the primary school classroom, but also in the physio treatment room.

 

The hip, knee and ankle all work together through complex bio mechanics to move your legs day to day. Whether it be walking, running, getting up from a chair, or in and out the car, they work best when they’re working together.

 

If one member of the trio lets the team down, you can expect the others to suffer. With the knee being the central joint, it is easily overloaded by the joints either side. If your feet are on the flat side, or you are weak through your hips, these factors will need addressing for your knee pain to resolve.

 

At PhysioWest, your physiotherapist will carry out a thorough assessment to uncover these hiding contributing factors, and help you achieve your goals faster.
