Common causes

A range of anatomical structures can be involved in Knee Pain such as muscle, tendon, ligament, bone, cartilage, meniscus, bursa & fascia. There are a wide variety of causes associated with the onset of Knee Pain such as:

  • Biomechanical issues / deficits
  • Inflammation associated with other disease
  • Trauma
  • Weight gain / Obesity
  • Overtraining / Tissue Overload
  • Inactivity
  • Jumping sports

With our Biomechanical Examinations our aim is to find out which tissue (muscle, tendon, bone etc) is aggravated within the knee to try and give you an accurate diagnosis. Once we have a better idea of which tissue (or tissues) are involved we can mutually agree on an appropriate management strategy to reduce your painful symptoms and restore function to your knees.

Common symptoms

Knee Pain symptoms will differ depending on the tissue that is aggravated within your knee. Our examinations and testing will help us to get closer to a more accurate diagnosis of your Knee Pain.
