Causes of Knee Pain
A lot of people who suffer with knee joint pains aren’t aware that there are actually many causes of knee joint pain- not all of which are boney in origin. For example, pain at the back of the knee may be related to a swelling known as a Baker’s Cyst. Alternatively there may be muscular spasm causing this pain, coming from perhaps a hamstring muscle. Similarly pain at the front of the knee may be coming from the main knee joint (tibio-femoral joint), from the knee-cap (patella-femoral joint) or from cartilage (meniscus), which acts as a shock absorber.
Whether your knee joint pain is coming from bone, muscle, ligament or cartilage, it is important that the treatment you receive results is a swift resolution to your pain. Quick relief is top of most peoples list.
Your osteopath will aim to establish the cause of your knee pain by listening to a case history. Perhaps it is a running or exercise related injury? Maybe it is due to arthritis (wear and tear), or just muscular weakness or imbalance. Whatever the cause, our insurance company registered team will be able to offer help and advice- often encouraging patients to adopt a self-help regimen of home exercises to speed up recovery.
Knee Pain Relief
Our aim is to see people as soon as possible to relieve their knee joint pain. Our osteopaths undertake a high level of training to understand the complexities of knee joint anatomy and are fully insured and registered with the General Osteopathic Council. They have a wide experience base in treating all types of knee injury and use a variety of techniques to achieve the best results.

Every individual is treated differently and we personalize our treatment plan so that is tailored to your lifestyle.
