Knee Pain Treatment in Worthing

Knee Pain

Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. The knee is a complex joint that flexes, extends and twists slightly from side to side. The knee’s design makes it vulnerable to a variety of injuries.  Knee problems can start due to injuries, wear and tear, or underlying conditions, significantly impacting the mobility and quality of life.  At Worthing Osteopathic & Wellbeing Clinic, we’re dedicated to finding the cause of the pain and providing effective, individual treatment plans.

Knee osteoarthritis: Understanding Wear and Tear

Osteoarthritis of the knee is a degenerative condition that wears down the cartilage, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility.  There are different stages of osteoarthritis from mild to severe.  Our treatment is based around relieving the symptoms associated with this condition.  By employing a range of hands-on techniques, such as gentle stretching, joint mobilisation, and muscle strengthening exercises, as well as advice on lifestyle adjustments, our team of osteopaths and sports therapists can help increase joint mobility, reduce inflammation, and alleviate pain.  These treatments not only focus on the knee itself but also address surrounding structures to improve overall function and support the body’s natural healing process.

Meniscus Injuries

The menisci are the cartilage of the knee joint.  They act as shock absorbers for the knee by cushioning the knee bones and provide stability, but they can be injured through sports or daily activities.  Symptoms include pain, swelling, and limited movement.  Through a comprehensive evaluation of the knee and its mechanics our treatment strategies aim at providing targeted hands-on techniques.  Additionally, osteopaths may prescribe specific exercises tailored to strengthen the muscles supporting the knee, further stabilising the joint

Ligament Injuries

Injuries to the knee ligaments, such as the ACL, can cause instability, pain and swelling.  Our treatment is aimed at restoring function and reducing pain without the immediate need for invasive procedures.  Through a blend of manual therapy and osteopathic techniques we work to decrease inflammation, enhance blood flow, and promote tissue healing around the injured ligament.  Additionally, we focus on correcting biomechanical imbalances and strengthening the muscles around the knee, which helps to stabilise the joint and mitigate the risk of future injuries.

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome

This is basically a pain at the front of the knee, around the kneecap.  Imbalances within the muscles of the knee and thigh cause the kneecap to rub on the underlying bone.  Our tailored treatment approach addresses the root cause, relieving pain and improving knee mechanics through osteopathic manipulation, sports therapy techniques and targeted exercise.
