Knee Pain Treatment

Common Conditions for Knee Pain:

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome: Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is a broad term used to describe pain in the front of the knee and around the patella, or kneecap. It is often referred to as "runner's" or "jumper's" knee because it is common in people who participate in sports, but PFPS can occur in nonathletes as well. The pain and stiffness caused by PFPS can make it difficult to climb stairs, kneel down, and perform other everyday activities.

Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis of the knee happens when the cartilage in your knee joint breaks down, enabling the bones to rub together. When this becomes severe, it can be described as “bone on bone”. The moving and bending of the knee results in friction of the bones which makes your knees hurt, become stiff and sometimes swell.

Meniscus Tear: Each knee has two C-shaped pieces of cartilage that act like a cushion between your shinbone and your thighbone. These are called your Meniscus. A torn meniscus is one of the most common knee injuries. Any activity that causes you to forcefully twist or rotate your knee, especially when putting your full weight on it, can lead to a torn meniscus.

ACL injury: An anterior cruciate ligament injury is the over-stretching or tearing of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee. A tear may be partial or complete and depending on the severity of the injury, may require surgery.

MCL/LCL Injury: An medial collateral ligament (MCL) tear typically occurs from trauma to the knee that causes the knee to bend inward. This results in a pull on the ligament that may result in a complete tear or strain to the MCL. Similar to an MCL tear, an lateral collateral ligament (LCL) tear occurs on the outer aspect of the leg when there is trauma to the inside of the leg causing it to bow outwards. The common rehab time for this injury ranges from 6-8 weeks and rarely requires any type of surgery.

Physiotherapy For Knee Rehabilitation: Treatment Plan

With Knee Injury, personalized treatment plans by a physiotherapist are very helpful for achieving a successful recovery. A customized plan of exercises and rehabilitation techniques are tailored to your needs to help you progress through recovery allowing you to regain strength, mobility, and flexibility. Regular check-ins with your physiotherapist are vital to track progress and adjust the treatment plan as needed.

Custom Orthotics From a Certified Pedorthist

Proper walking mechanics are critical to promote healing and prevent re-injury. During a gait analysis, a pedorthist will evaluate your walking style and suggest modifications to your footwear or custom orthotics to correct any issues that may be hindering your recovery. This service can also help prevent future injury, keeping you active and pain free.

Custom orthotics for knee injuries are dependent on the foot type as well as the specific area of injury. For Knee Pain, they often will include Arch support to better stabilize the foot and improve alignment, Medial or Lateral posting to help off-load the Knee, and added cushioning for comfort and added shock absorption, especially in the forefoot.
