Knee pain treatments

Who does knee pain most commonly affect?

Knee pain can affect anyone at any stage in life but has the highest prevalence in older adults, athletes, or overweight individuals.

What causes knee pain?

Knee pain can either be directly related to the integrity of the joint and supporting structures or be a result of problems elsewhere that place abnormal pressure on the knee joint. Common knee injuries include:

  • Ligamentous damage or rupture. There are four main ligaments in the knee that work to limit excessive movement of the joint. Two that sit within the knee joint limiting forward and backward movement, and two that sit either side of the knee limiting sideways movement. At times, these ligaments can tear or completely rupture if the knee joint is over stressed in certain directions.
  • Torn or worn meniscus. The meniscus is a wedge-shaped structure made of cartilage located within the knee, which acts as a shock absorber. Damage to the meniscus can occur from an acute injury – for example, if the knee is twisted when the foot is planted on the ground, or with long-term over-use.
  • Patellar tendinopathy. This injury occurs as a result of damage to the strong connective tissue which attaches the quadriceps (thigh) muscle to the shin bone. Excessive jumping or landing strains the patella tendon which over time can cause Patellar tendinopathy.
  • Chondromalacia patellae. The cartilage under the kneecap is a natural shock absorber. Deterioration or breakdown of this cartilage, often as a result of imbalances at the hip or foot can cause Chondromalacia patellae.
  • Arthritis. Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid Arthritis can cause swelling, stiffness, and knee pain as you flex and extend your knee.
  • Iliotibial band friction syndrome. The iliotibial band (ITB) is a tight band of fibrous tissue that runs down the outside of the thigh, from the hip to just below the knee joint. ITB friction syndrome is caused by the ITB rubbing over structures on the side of the knee, often a result of imbalances at the hip or foot.

What it’s like to be a patient at Hatt Clinic

“I have been having problems with both my knees and the pain has prevented me from doing lots of the things I enjoy. With some trepidation I decided to try physiotherapy. I went to Hatts and it’s no exaggeration to say it has improved my life hugely.”
Heather
“After many years of knee troubles and trying various things I wanted to try and see what could be done to progress matters with the knee. I went with an open mind and ideally wanted a plan and some structure to what I needed to do. This is exactly what Hatt’s gave me. I’m delighted I chose Hatts to help with my next steps towards a healthier knee.”
