Knee Injuries

You’re playing sport on the weekend, you turn and your knee buckles underneath you, pain explodes in your knee. You hobble home and ice the knee straight away, next day it’s difficult to walk or bend the knee. Acuhealth has been treating knee pain from both traumas in sports and overuse injuries in athletes and non-sporting clients for many years. Knee pain is one of the most common injuries in sport, with such a huge variety of possible causes and we won’t attempt to detail them all here.  However, a correct diagnosis and early management are critical to getting you back on the track, regardless of your sporting level.

What is this condition?

Whatever the nature of your symptoms, identifying the root cause of your pain is often critical.  Your pain may be the result of an injury, a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage. It may be an anatomical train imbalance sourced in the back, hip ankle or foot.

We must also evaluate potential medical conditions such as arthritis, gout and infections that can also cause knee pain
