Is that achy knee preventing you from playing sport or taking daily walks?
Patellofemoral pain (pain behind the kneecap) is a common aliment in adults and adolescents.It can be very disabling.However, if treated early and effectively, the majority of patients return to full sporting and recreational activities.
Don’t let that OA knee slow you down
Several studies have shown that strengthening regimes make significant reductions in a subject’s pain levels. Aquasports Physiotherapists can identify movement patterns and external factors, such as footwear, that contribute to maintaining knee symptoms. This is followed up with a personalised programme of progressive knee and general strengthening exercises to add many active years to your life.
Anterior Cruciate Repair
We have a special interest in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL reconstruction). We have a close working relationship with several orthopaedic surgeons. With our onsite hydrotherapy and well-equipped gyms, we can provide comprehensive post-op care right through to return to sport rehab. We augment our rehab with the Fifa 11+ conditioning programme. This enables our patients to gain their maximum strength, core stability, agility and co-ordination to allow them to return to sport safely.
Approximately 70% of meniscal/cartilage knee injuries do not require surgery and can be effectively managed with a well supervised rehab programme.
