Physiotherapy can help address the root causes of knee pain. Occasionally the use of knee braces may be necessary in the treatment of your injury or in the long term management of your condition.
Prompt assessment of your injury or condition can help reduce anxiety and provide the most appropriate treatment to get you going again.
The knee is the most frequently injured joint, especially in sports such as skiing. Injuries can range from minor sprains to more severe ruptures and dislocation.
Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Injuries
25% of all knees injured through skiing result in Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries.
One of the most common knee conditions treated by physiotherapists is that of Patellafemoral syndrome (pain at the front of the knee), which can be due to poor muscle control. More recent thinking is that the soft tissue and nerve endings become irritated by normal activities, including sport.
