Knee

The knee is the most common musculoskeletal reason for visiting the GP and your physiotherapist, and there are many different causes of knee pain (sports injuries, age related changes, overload, etc).  Body and Mind Physiotherapists are experts in human anatomy and can carry out assessments to differentiate what might be causing your pain.  

Body and Mind Physiotherapistswill complete a thorough assessment of your knee pain by taking a detailed history of your symptoms and performing a full physical examination of your knee and possibly the neighboring joints.  They have vast experience in assessing and treating different knee pathologies (both acute and chronic problems) and will often complete gait (walking or running ) analysis if relevant to your pain. Following their assessment, they can outline the proposed treatment plan which may include home exercises and manual (hands on) therapy. 

With extensive knowledge of musculoskeletal and orthopaedic physiotherapy, we work closely with local surgeons and are confident to refer into orthopaedic specialists if required.
