Knee Pain

Knee pain can affect people of all ages for various reasons. It can be caused by a trauma or wear and tear over time or by medical conditions such as arthritis, gout and infections. People often experience degeneration, muscle strain, ligament rupture, meniscus or cartilage tears. Sometimes, individuals may experience a popping or snapping noise at the time of injury, pain with movement or difficulty in bearing weight on their leg.

In some cases; however, the knee is not the actual cause of the problem – it is just the area that takes a “big hit” or gets injured. Restrictions in the hip joint, stiffness in the foot, an old sprained ankle, an asymmetry in the pelvis or a lack of motion in the lower back can all place undue stress on the knee making it more vulnerable to injury and overuse.

Why Central Minds?

Whether you have an acute knee injury or a long standing issue, degenerative problems, or simply find that our haven’t experienced any relief with standard conventional treatments, orthotics or anti-inflammatory medications, our physical therapists will work with you to find ad treat the root cause of your knee problem. This will eventually help to reduce the chances of re-injury or returning pain.

Your individualised program may include one or a combination of the following treatments:

• Joint mobilisation (to improve range of motion of the knee)
• Soft tissue release (to reduce pain, swelling and tightness)
• Realignment of the pelvis, hip, ankle and foot joints
• Flexibility training
• Strength and endurance training

Our goal is to look beyond the symptoms, treat the root cause and achieve long lasting results.

Hear What They Say

“Wendy is an amazing physiotherapist! She is very thorough and takes her time while working on the body to release tension or work on realignment. I love her sessions because she is really there to treat you and not like other therapists who leave you hooked up on a machine. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs to work on shoulder tension, migraines and lower back pain. She is wonderful!”

“Wendy was considerate and professional; she really listened to my issue and the history of it to ensure she could tailor her treatment appropriately. I had noticeable improvement in my injury following my treatment with her. Would definitely return in the future.”
