Knee Pain

physiotherapy for knee pain

Knee pain is extremely common.  The knee joint is prone to injuries and damage due the fact it is a weight bearing joint.  The joint not only supports our full body weight, but also takes additional stress and impact when we are active e.g. running, jumping. 

There are a number of structures within the joint and surrounding tissues which can cause knee pain.  With some conditions, symptoms commence gradually and develop over time.  In some cases, the pain is caused suddenly through injury or overuse. 


Common causes of knee pain:

  • Arthritis
  • Ligament injuries
  • Cartilage and meniscus injuries
  • Anterior knee pain and patella problems
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Osgood Schlatters Disease
