How will Physiotherapy for my knee pain help me?
Physiotherapy for knee pain will allow you to continue living the lifestyle you enjoy. Effective treatment for any injury is based on timely, accurate diagnosis. Our physiotherapists are experts in musculoskeletal diagnosis. Once the source of your knee pain has been determined we will set you up with a step by step program to ensure you are back to doing what you love.
What can Physiotherapy be effective for?
Physiotherapy is often the first line of treatment for knee pain. The following is a list of common injuries we see and treat:
- ligament sprains- medial and lateral collateral ligaments, anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments
- meniscal tears
- patello-femoral syndrome/ chondromalacia patellae
- tendon strains/tears
Will I need to get an X-ray or MRI before I come in?
No, but if you already have one, your Physiotherapist can explain the results to you.
Do I need physiotherapy or a massage first?
This is a surprisingly common question. The best approach begins with a complete physiotherapy assessment and diagnosis and if needed, individuals are then referred to a massage therapist. The benefits of working with our physiotherapists allows them to create a specific treatment plan for our massage therapists to work from.
Patients that benefit from our massage therapists vary from office workers to professional athletes. A massage therapist gives you an excellent opportunity to keep your body feeling great by working the soft tissues and resolving residual knots and tightness from current/past injuries.
