Knee Pain West Ryde

Knee pain is a common issue that can affect people of all ages; often a result of an injury including a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage. Often, knee pain is associated with a muscular imbalance or biomechanical issue elsewhere so it is vital to have these injuries assessed appropriately. Possibly knee injures include: Acute knee injuriesOsgood SchlattersSinding-Larssen-Johansson Syndrome.

Acute injuries of the knee such as cartilage, ligament or meniscus tears are commonly associated with trauma related to daily living, sports injuries and car accidents. The knee is also prone to more chronic conditions such as arthritis often resultant from poor biomechanics.

Another very common cause of knee pain is due know of patella tracking disorder. Patellar tracking disorder is a condition which occurs when your patella (kneecap) moves out of its original place when the leg straightens or bends. In most cases, the kneecap shifts too far toward the outside of the leg, although in a few people it shifts toward the inside.

Through assessment of the biomechanics of the knee, identification of muscle imbalance or loss in joint motion, the cause of your knee pain can be accurately diagnosed. When accurately diagnosed, the treatment plan will be most effective as the treatment will be specific and best for your condition.
