There are many different cause of knee pain

A physiotherapist will do a full and thorough assessment of your knee. This will include taking a detailed history of your symptoms. 

They will then do a physical assessment to see how you move and how your muscles, nerves and joints are working.

They will discuss with you the options available, and the best treatment programme that fits your needs. This may include a range of options such as:

  • a home exercise programme for strength and mobility
  • advice on pain management
  • manual (hands-on) treatment

    Your physiotherapist will monitor your progress with the treatment plan, and help to you get back to your normal daily life.
