Knee Injury and in pain
The Knee joint is one of the most complex and largest joints in the human body. Unlike other joints, the knee has more than 2 bones involved, namely the tibia, femur and patella.
Swelling of the Knee
Pain in the joint
Due to its complexities, knee pain can be caused by a number of factors. An Osteopath at our clinic will examine and assess your knee as well as other joints in your body. With a detailed case history, they will diagnose your knee condition, and identify which structures are involved and why they think it has occurred. From here, a treatment plan can be drawn up.
When an injury occurs at the knee, common symptoms include pain at the joint, difficulty walking and loading the joint, popping or clicking in the knee and it giving way. In some conditions, there may be noticeable swelling, and redness, and may even be hot to the touch.
As with most joints, the knee is subject to trauma during obvious injuries, such as; falling over, impact during a road traffic accident or whilst playing football, however, it can also be affected alongside other conditions like Gout or Septic Arthritis.
Osteopaths see a lot of knee pain in the clinic, and they tend to be caused by sprains, meniscal tears, strains, bursitis, dislocations and even fractures. In the young, a condition known as Osgood-Schlatter’s can often be the reason for pain felt at the knees.
Our Osteopaths are trained to look for red flags. These are signs and symptoms that indicate that more urgent examinations and treatment may be required and will refer and advise should they need to. A deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is an example and if suspected, our Osteopath will advise to seek urgent care.
For the most common type of knee injuries, an Osteopath will use a combination of soft tissue massage and mobilisation at the joint to ensure movement is maintained/improved, encouraging a good blood supply to help with healing. Any other areas that the Osteopath feels are contributing to or being affected by the Knee will also be treated and a self-care plan will be made. Included in the plan will be a set of progressive exercises that you can do at home, at work or at the gym and ways you can contribute to reducing pain and reoccurrence of the injury.
