Knee symptoms are very common with various causes ranging from sports injuries to age. There are a wide range of symptoms which include pain, swelling, stiffness, instability which can originate from soft tissue (muscles and ligaments), bone and joint.

The knee joint is a complex hinge joint that allows a combination of movements. With this in mind, if you are experiencing knee problems, and wondering what can be done, physiotherapists are best placed to diagnose and plan treatment.

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists are experts  in managing musculoskeletal problems such as knees. Physiotherapy can help identify the cause of your knee problems and help reduce symptoms. A full assessment[1]  is completed with individual treatment plans. This may include  the following;

  • exercise programme tailored to your needs
  • Advice and education regarding pain management and return to activities

Important things you need to know:

  • If you have symptoms that are not getting better, particularly after a sporting incident or slip/trip/fall, with severe pain /swelling/ knee giving way, please contact your GP or visit A&E/ Minor Injuries Unit
  • Simple fixes can be really effective: rest but move the knee as able. Over-the-counter pain medication is helpful, as are old favourites ice and heat. Try both and see which works for you.
