We have a great team of specialists to carry you the whole way from the initial consultation with your consultant all the way through to the finish, offering expert treatment for pre-surgery and post-surgery rehabilitation.

Knee Injury Treatment
Knee injuries can happen for a number of reasons such as exercise, wear and tear, a fall or an accident. Depending on the extent of the damage or injury, we will develop a treatment plan with you and your knee consultant to find the best solution. You shouldn’t have to live in pain or survive on painkillers, physiotherapy is an important step in your rehabilitation and shouldn’t be overlooked.
Swollen knee treatment includes icing and resting the joint, but it’s regular movement and personalised exercise that will allow you to see marked improvement in the area. When home treatment and anti-inflammatories are no longer doing the trick, it’s time to seek professional help from experienced professionals.
How can you treat my knee pain?
Depending on the type of knee pain you are suffering with, we can recommend and guide you through the appropriate knee physiotherapy to set you on your way to recovery. There are a number of simple exercises that can be practised to help your strength and flexibility. As your physiotherapy continues, you will find yourself able to challenge yourself further and experience improved movement in the area.
We work with you and your consultant throughout your knee joint pain treatment, working at a pace that suits you and your ability. Whether your aim is to return to sport, or you just want to be able to reduce the discomfort of knee pain – we will design a programme that suits you and your lifestyle.
Following a thorough assessment of the issue, our knee specialists will work with you over the weeks to progress through movements – perfecting them in the studio and practising them at home. Within two weeks, you should start noticing an improvement and find yourself in less pain.
Knee physiotherapy is a key step in dealing with knee pain, especially if it persists. You may be recommended by a doctor or seek us out yourselves, but we hope to be able to help you to feel less hindered by your pain and hopefully reduce the need for surgery which can mean weeks off work and even more disruption to daily life.
