Knee Pain

 

There are many causes of knee pain. The most common knee problem is patellofemoral pain syndrome. This is

where the knee cap or patella doesn't quite sit right in the joint. This can cause grinding and clicking in the knee

joint eventually leading to pain and or arthritis.

 

Knee ligament sprains are also common in the knee and at worst can become tears in the ligaments.

ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament), PCL (Posterior Cruciate Ligament), MCL (Medial Colateral Ligament) and LCL

(Lateral Colateral Ligament) are the most commonly damaged ligaments in the knee. These are often involved in

sporting injuries such as soccer, rugby and gym work.

 

Other more serious knee injuries include Meniscus damage. The meniscus is a layer of cartilage that lies between

the femur and tibia. Twisting movements of the knee can tear the meniscus. Usually this will need to cleaned up

with surgery.

 

Muscle therapy can help to restore function in the knee and either fix these problems or prevent them for getting any worse and keep them under control.
