KNEE AND LEGS
Dr Jessica Sammut
Knee pain can have a negative effect on both confidence and mobility. This is applicable for both young, athletic knees, as well as achy, arthritic knees. Knee pain is one of the most common musculoskeletal complaints.
The knee structure involves bones, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, muscles and bursas, so there are many elements that can be involved in knee dysfunction.
When dealing with knee pain, osteopaths will determine the cause of your knee pain, through both a comprehensive case history and physical assessment, and if there is a limited improvement, further imaging may be required.
Most importantly, your osteopathy will educate you, and work with you to help you correct the mechanics of your pelvis, knee and ankle, so you can move around with confidence and comfort.
