Knee Pain Treatment

Physiotherapy for Knee Pain

Shoulder joint is a complex joint formed by the upper arm bone (humerus) and the shoulder blade bone (scapula). It reinforced and supported by a wide range of muscles and ligaments. Considerably, the most mobile joint and is encapsulated in a sheath of connective tissue (shoulder joint capsule). Its structure and function is what makes it more prone to pain and injury.

Knee pain is a common problem that can originate in any of the bony structures compromising the knee joint (femur, tibia, fibula), the kneecap (patella), or the ligaments and cartilage (meniscus) of the knee.

Knee pain can be aggravated by physical activity, as well as obesity, affected by the surrounding muscles and their movements, and be triggered by other problems (such as a foot injury).

Knee pain can affect people of all ages, and home remedies can be helpful unless it becomes severe.

Physiotherapy treatment will vary widely between patients based on the following factors:

  • The diagnosis
  • Stage of injury (acute or chronic)
  • Fitness level of the patient
  • Patients lifestyle factors and goals of treatment
  • Severity of the injury or the underlying disease

Treatment will likely involve some combination of patient education, manual therapy, modalities if needed and ergonomic advice all expertly designed by the physiotherapist to address the patient’s specific diagnosis and achieve their functional goal

  1. Difficulty weight bearing or walking due to instability of the knee
  2. Limping due to discomfort
  3. Difficulty walking up or down steps due to ligament damage
  4. Locking of the knee (unable to bend the knee)
  5. Redness and swelling

There are a varied number of causes for knee pain. The most common ones are:

  • Acute injury: such as a broken bone, torn ligament, or meniscal tear
  • Medical conditions: rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, infections
  • Chronic use or overuse conditions: osteoarthritis, chondromalacia, IT band syndrome, patellar syndromes, tendinitis, and bursitis

The location of the knee pain can vary depending on which structure is involved. With infection or an inflammatory process, the whole knee might be swollen and painful, while a torn meniscus or fracture of a bone gives symptoms only in one specific location. A Baker cyst will usually cause pain in the back of the knee.

Dr. Pranvi from Healyos has really been instrumental in my mother in law's recovery from total knee replacement surgery. She is calm and composed and knows her task well. A thorough professional, she has always been on time, explained all the exercises well and has patiently handled the two month recovery journey. My mother in law would always look forward to her physio sessions with the doc. We are very happy with the results and would definitely recommend her.

We engaged with Healyos for my mother's physiotherapy sessions post knee replacement surgery of both legs. Dr Rukaiya planned and managed therapy sessions very efficiently. Her carefully planned exercises helped my mother's smooth and speedy recovery and now she is back to her day to day routine before surgery with more vigor.
