Knee Pain Physiotherapy
What are the causes of knee pain?
The most common causes for knee injuries are sports or accidents and can result in knee pain and knee instability that might require surgery.
Knee Physiotherapy, Rehabilitation and Treatment in London for Knee Injuries and Knee Pain: Avoid knee surgery whenever possible
With physiotherapy, you can avoid or delay knee surgery. Physiotherapy rehabilitation can alleviate the pain and strengthen the muscles around the knee to make it more stable and increase its balance. A strong and stable knee can delay considerably or even avoid surgery all together.
What are the most common knee injuries?
Knee Ligament Injuries, ACL, MCL or LTL
Knee ligament injuries are very common and can include: ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament), MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) and LTL (Lateral Collateral Ligament). Knee ligaments consist of a hard fibrous tissue that connects bones in and around the joint. Their purpose is to provide stability and support to the knee. If the ligament is injured this leads to a damage of the fibrous tissue and results in pain, swelling and instability of the joint movement.
Knee Meniscus Tear
Knee meniscus tear often follows a trauma during sports or through wear and tear over a period of time. The meniscus is a fibrocartilage that separates the femur from the tibia and also acts as a shock absorber. Each knee joint is comprised of medial and lateral meniscus.
Kneecap injury or pain
Problems with the kneecap (patella) are very common and can be caused by trauma, muscle imbalance, a shallow groove in the femur or poor biomechanical control. Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome is characterised by pain behind the kneecap due to excessive pressure at the joint from poor kneecap alignment. Other problems may be caused by displacement or dislocation of the patella usually caused by an accident.
Knee arthritis can be caused by different factors such as age, weight, injuries and genetics. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of knee arthritis and is a degenerative condition of the cartilage of the knee joint resulting in pain and restriction of movement. Another type of arthritis is Rheumatoid arthritis that caused inflammation of the joint.
Physiotherapy rehabilitation after Knee Surgery (London)
The pathologies described above can require surgery to alleviate the symptoms if the injury is too important to be fixed by physio exercises. Physiotherapy and rehabilitation are a vital step in achieving recovery and long term success. Our knee specialist in London can help you recover the full functionality of your knee following your knee surgery. Our knee specialist is also a personal trainer who can help you get back to your activities through a tailor-made programme that works best for you. We can conduct your physiotherapy rehabilitation after knee surgery at your home or in our practices in Moorgate EC2, Westminster SW1 or Clapham SW4.
The most common knee surgeries include:
Knee Arthroscopy is most commonly used for meniscus tears and mild arthritis. It is a minimally invasive procedure during which the surgeon makes a small incision and inserts an arthroscope in the knee that allows them to assess and repair the damaged knee joint. A knee arthroscopy is not suitable for all knee conditions but is a preferred method for minor cases due to its faster recovery time.
Knee replacement surgery is the most commonly performed for the different types of arthritis. It replaces damaged and necrosed joint surfaces of the knee with metal or plastic components and restores movement and use of the patient’s knee joint.
ACL Reconstructive Surgery, ACL reconstruction
The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury is very common among professional athletes but also among amateur playing football or doing ski. ACL Reconstructive Surgery can be performed either by arthroscopy or open surgery by inserting a graft from a donor or the patient’s patellar or hamstring tendon.
