Why Is The Knee So Vulnerable To Injury?

Injuries to the knee are very common; the joint takes the full weight of the body which makes it particularly vulnerable to damage and pain, even more so for people involved in sporting activity which impacts on the knee, such as running and jumping or any sport which involves turning actions (football, skiing etc).


Common conditions which create pain in the knee include:

  • Anterior knee pain (runner’s / jumper’s knee)
  • Degenerative changes in conditions such as Osteoarthritis
  • Ligament and tendon damage
  • Sprains and strains


In assessing knee pain issues, we examine the overall biomechanics of the knee joint, looking beyond the immediate problem and working on resolving the ultimate cause of the knee pain through a closely tailored individual treatment plan.
