How Physiotherapy can help Knee Pain

What is Knee Pain

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.

Physiotherapists are renowned for effectively and quickly treating chronic and acute knee injuries due to their extensive knowledge of the musculoskeletal system. Whether you are young or old, are extremely active or inactive, or whether your knee issue is short or long term, physiotherapy can help you by reducing pain and inflammation and building strength.

Your knees are a vital part of everyday movement and activity, and it is incredibly important to look after them. Knees are vulnerable to injury and physiotherapy can act not only as a treatment for the post injury patient, but also as a preventative measure.

Causes of Knee Pain

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.


Physical treatment helps to restore normal motion of the joints, and loosen tight muscles to release tension. Furthermore, our experienced physiotherapists at NDPE will teach you rehabilitation exercises to build strength and quicken your recovery.

We also have new state of the art treatment called “Game Ready” which is being used worldwide by leading Orthopaedic Surgeons, Sports Physicians and of course Physiotherapists to aid in the recovery of common sporting injuries.

Game ready will give you the best, most advanced, most effective therapeutic options for healing and recovering faster. This type of treatment has been clinically proven to give you the best results possible; using cold compression to accelerate the body’s natural repair mechanisms.


If you are suffering from knee pain, then you can trust one of our experienced physiotherapists at NDPE. Whether you are dealing with an acute injury, high level rehabilitation following a severe injury or post surgery, our team will devise a specific treatment plan tailored to your exact needs.
