Causes of knee injury

Knee pain can present in two ways – through a direct injury (traumatic) or more gradually over time (a-traumatic). A direct injury might be caused by twisting your knee while playing sport, or following a fall, or after a particular run. Whereas, gradual onset injuries may occur due to poor movement patterns, repeated loading, or congenital (from birth) conditions. Pure Physio can help with all the afore mentioned causes of knee pain.

Our approach to knee treatment

At Pure Physio, our approach to assessment, treatment and rehabilitation is incredibly thorough. Firstly, we identify the exact underlying causes of your knee presentation. Then, we address these in relation to your goals and needs. Our aim is to get you back on your feet, faster.

We also believe in the importance of hands-on treatment. After gaining the full picture of your knee injury, we use techniques including soft tissue therapy, mobilisation, dry needling, and stretching, to assist in recovery. This helps alleviate your pain and prevent knee pain in the future.

  • Iliotibial band (ITB) syndrome.
  • Ligament injuries (ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL).

When should I see a physiotherapist?

The earlier we can diagnose your condition and begin treatment, the sooner you can return to your normal healthy self. If left untreated, your symptoms may progress, causing further lifestyle restrictions and a longer recovery period. Speak with our experienced team if any of these symptoms sound familiar to the pain you are experiencing.
