The knee is a hinge joint and weight bearing joint. It’s stability is primarily from the joint alignment of the 2 main bones and the cartilage, the ligaments within the knee (anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments) and the side ligaments (the medial collateral ligament and the lateral collateral ligament) and the muscles around the knee. These structures are put under stress with activity and with poor control of the hip and foot/ankle. Injuries to the knee can be traumatic e.g. following a skiing accident or gradual e.g. running or playing tennis. If you are experiencing any of the following issues then we will be able to help:

  • Pain on bending or straightening the knee
  • Difficulty going up or down stairs, locking or clicking in the knee
  • Instability when standing from a chair or twisting when playing sport
  • Pain on squatting or deep squatting
  • Pain on activity or on rest
