Knee Pain

Osteopaths love to treat knee pain! Why? Because a lot of the time, the pain is not just coming from your knee joint. Therefore, a thorough examination of your entire spine and joints is required to figure out the root cause of your pain. Hands-on treatment focuses on gentle manipulation techniques concentrating on the joints and soft tissues surrounding the knee, ankle, and spine if required. Mobilisation techniques are used to restore the range of movement into the knee gently.

Osteopathy For Knee Pain

Once we have diagnosed that your pain comes from various structures in the knee and perhaps further afield, we will compile a comprehensive treatment plan tailored specifically to each patient. Treatment plans centre around osteopathic treatment using highly skilled techniques to ease your elbow pain, restore movement and relieve aches and pains. We also focus on more long-term rehabilitation techniques to improve mobility and strength to return the patient to everyday activities.
