We love treating knees

We need to take good care of our knees. Knee joints are vulnerable to acute injuries like cartilage, cruciate or collateral ligament tears. They wear down over time with arthritis and stiffen up. The patellar can mal track, bursa’s can swell and tendons can be overstrained from running. Our physiotherapists will help you with all these problems and help you get the most from your knees.

They will assess the biomechanics of your knee and identify accurately any losses in joint motion or muscular imbalances. They can accurately diagnose the problem and set you on the best course of treatment.

Your physiotherapist will use hands on techniques to help restore normal motion of the joints or release troublesome tight muscles. They will plan and teach you an advanced rehab exercise program from the acute stages of injury recovery through to high level rehab or post surgical rehabilitation.

Only the best for your ankles and feet

Many of us have had ankle and feet problems. Ligament injuries to the ankle and plantar fasciitis are two of the more common injuries we see but there are many more. Our physiotherapists will assess and diagnose your problem then guide you through your recovery.

In ankle sprains the lateral ligaments found on the outside of the ankle are a lot weaker than the inside ligaments, and are much more easily damaged when you roll or twist your ankle.

Following an ankle sprain, it is not uncommon for people to feel ‘unstable’, with around 30% of people who sprain an ankle suffering from subsequent chronic, recurrent sprains. This most commonly occurs with severe sprains or when a less severe sprain is left to heal by itself, often leaving it weakened through insufficient healing, reduced muscle control and poor balance.

In plantar fasciitis the foot mechanics need fixing with appropriate orthotics and importantly mobilization or loosening of the mid foot and plantar fascia. Something our physiotherapists do all the time.

Your physiotherapist routinely will assess the joints, muscles and biomechanics of your ankle and foot. They will then plan your treatment including manual techniques to restore movement and rehab exercises to restore strength and flexibility
