Knee & Ankle Pain
Knee Pain is a daily occurrence here at the Clinic. In our experience, there are two types of Knee Pain. As Osteopaths and Chiropractors, our first job is to identify if there is any structural damage to the Knee.
This could be damage to the tendons, ligaments or cartilage for example. We need to assess for the extent for any arthritic changes and see how much capacity the Knee has for change.
The good news is that in the majority of cases, even when there is some wear and tear, the knee pain you experience can be changed. 80% of the time, we find that Knee Pain is actually a compensation for the Hip or the Ankle.
This means that the muscles around the knee are often over-working to help out somewhere else. Our job is to find out WHERE and WHY.
This means we will put you through a thorough assessment of:
- Static Posture
- Range of Motion
- Neurological Testing
- Orthopaedic Testing
- Manual Muscle Testing
Once we have a diagnosis, we move you through our 5 step Process to get you back to 100% as quickly as possible.

Why do I Hurt?
There are two reasons to get “…..” Pain. Firstly, if there is true damage to the joints, muscles or other hardware structures. This is why the first step in our process is to rule out any Structural issues.
Without the presence of any “Damage” Pain is due to protection of the Brain and Nervous System (Often from Past Injuries).
Pain is here a protective response gone wrong. Our job is to find out why and get you on the road to recovery.
