Knee Ankle and Foot Pain

Knee Ankle and Foot Pain

Any injury to the lower limb can be debilitating and often disruptive to our daily lives. For optimal recovery, it is vital to receive an accurate diagnosis from a qualified physiotherapist. Our physiotherapists specialise in all knee ligament (ACL, MCL etc.) and ankle ligament (ATFL, CFL etc.) injuries, having additional qualifications in rehabilitating these problems. We also believe in providing solid prevention programs to significantly reduce the chances of recurrence of injury.

Common causes of knee pain include:

  • ligament sprains or tears (ACL, MCL, LCL, PCL)
  • tendinopathies
  • patellofemoral pain syndrome
  • fractures
  • arthritis
  • cartilage damage or loose bodies
  • referred pain

Common causes of ankle and foot pain:

  • ligament sprains or tears
  • fracture of the foot or lower limb
  • Achilles tendinopathy or tear
  • overuse/tendinopathy of other
  • tendons
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • biomechanical foot/ankle issues
  • arthritis

Symptoms can include:

  • Instability or giving way of either joint
  • pain when weight-bearing or exercising
  • pain when resting
  • locking in the joint
  • swelling and bruising
  • limping or abnormal walking pattern
  • tender and tight on touch

Knee and ankle joints are highly complex and have many ligaments and muscles that attach to various structures in the lower limb. This means symptoms can vary greatly in each person and treatment programs have to be specific for the problem at hand.

Treatment

Each case of ankle and knee pain requires specific intervention to make an excellent recovery and prevent recurrence. Once thoroughly assessed, your physiotherapist will give you a treatment plan that may involve manual therapy including specific mobilisation and pain-relieving techniques, bracing, and a program of targeted strengthening and stretching exercises

Client Testimonials

Zoe Rowell

I always have a wonderful experience when visiting! The reception staff are always super-helpful and accommodating and I am always greeted with a smile! The physiotherapist I see gives stretches and strengthening exercises to complete between visits if follow-up appointments are needed! Thanks for your awesome work!

Frank Mount Evelyn

I have been going to this clinic for over 3 years after suffering near-fatal injuries from a car accident. The Physiotherapists who have been treating me have all been very caring, gentle and courteous whilst ensuring all of my needs were met. There was never an issue that they did not overcome with either treatment or the supply of ergonomic devices. My treatment is coming to an end as I now progress onto self-managing my health and wellbeing with regular sessions at the local gym, which they also organised. The administration staff are fantastic people who also treated me with the utmost respect and assistance. Thanks, Team!!!

Chris Musgrove

Being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, I was referred to Jade, whom I have no hesitation in recommending. She has been able to help through planning and careful management, meaning that frequent appointments were not required. My health was in her best interest. Truly a great service.
