Ouch! It’s likely to be a pain in the knee.

Newcastle Podiatry - Wednesday, December 05, 2012

The knee is reported to be the most commonly injured joint in the body. And particularly in sports, the most common cause of knee pain is injury to the Patella-femoral joint.

Let’s put a figure on that. 27% of all sporting injuries are to the knee while the ankle comes a close 2nd at around 21%. As a family practice, we at Newcastle Podiatry see knee injuries in patients of all ages.

Our aim is always to get them back to fitness as soon as possible. So accurate diagnosis as well as screening of the causative factors of your knee pain is vital if you want to recover in the quickest possible time.

Underlying injuries are often made worse through participation in activities such as jumping sports like basketball, hill running or even simply going up and down stairs.

However, we can help with a number of rehabilitation exercises, mobilizations, taping techniques and prescription functional foot orthotics.
