Knee Arthritis, Knee Cartilage Tears, Patella Tendonitis, Runner’s Knee and knee ligament injuries are common knee problems that can occur secondary to sporting activities. Knee injury symptoms consist of knee pain, a stiff knee, knee swelling, knee muscle weakness, knee locking and ‘giving way’. Knee pain and knee injuries are often caused by trauma or overuse.
Physiotherapy treatment and rehabilitation is essential in the treatment and prevention of knee pain. Knee Arthritis often occurs secondary to another knee injury, such as a Knee Cartilage Tear or Knee Ligament Injury. Skilled physiotherapy treatment of Knee Arthritis can halt the progression of the problem and can even avoid the need for knee replacement surgery. The PhysioRoom.com Injury A-Z has fully explained rehabilitation protocols for common knee injuries that have been developed by leading sports physiotherapists and knee surgeons for use with elite level football players following knee surgery.
There’s also extensive information about the treatment and prevention of overuse knee injuries such as Runner’s Knee and Patella Tendonitis. Typical Runner’s Knee and Patella Tendonitis rehabilitation guides, including progressive eccentric strengthening are included in the PhysioRoom.com Injury A-Z, but these common running injuries can be frustrating to treat so injury prevention is paramount.
