Need a Geelong & Torquay Knee Physio?

Treatment of knees can be very complex. The pathology can be muscular, tendon, ligament, meniscus and/or articular cartilage. The key is identification of the issue and knowing the appropriate loading strategy. Specificity is super important as is being able to optimally load. This may mean using strategies such as Blood Flow Restriction training, hands on manual therapy, heavy loading in the rehabilitation gym or just managing a return to run load best. A run assessment can ensure that inefficiencies are not leading to injury or poor performance.

GLA:D Hip and Knee is also great for chronic knee injuries and used to try and avoid/delay joint replacement.

Common knee injuries we treat (but not limited to) include:

  • Knee osteoarthritis
  • Patella tendinopathy/ tendinitis / Jumper’s knee and Quadriceps tendinitis
  • Ligament injuries such as ACL, MCL, PCL
  • Meniscus tears
  • Patello-femoral pain / knee cap pain
  • ITB friction syndrome/ runner’s knee
