Common Knee Injuries
Runners Knee (ITS Syndrome)
Osgood-Schlatter disease is a common cause of knee pain in growing adolescents. It is an inflammation of the area just below the knee where the tendon from the kneecap (patellar tendon) attaches to the shinbone (tibia). Physio's are experts in treating Osgood Schlatters and will get you moving again.
Osteoarthritis, commonly known as wear-and-tear arthritis, is a condition in which the natural cushioning between joints -- cartilage -- wears away. When this happens, the bones of the joints rub more closely against one another with less of the shock-absorbing benefits of cartilage. Knee OA is a physio's bread and butter - seek help today!
Jumper's knee — also known as patellar tendinopathy is a degenerative condition to the patellar tendon - the cord-like tissue that joins the patella to the shin bone. Jumper's knee is an overuse injury. That means it occurs after frequent knee flexion movements. There's no one better positioned to help you than a physio - you're GP's most trusted health professional.
Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome
Patellofemoral pain syndrome is a broad term used to describe pain in the front of the knee and around the patella, or kneecap. It includes conditions such as patellofemoral maltracking and Chondromalacia Patellae. Seek help from a physio today!
