Knee Pain Treatment in New Milton

Knee Pain and Injuries are a common presentation we see at our Physiotherapy Clinic in New Milton.

Knee Pain can have various causes, including:

  • Anterior or Posterior Cruciate Ligament Tears

  • Anterior Knee Pain

  • Medial/Lateral Collateral Ligament Injuries

  • Bakers Cyst

  • Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITB Syndrome)

  • Osgood-Schlatter Disease

  • Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome

  • Meniscus Tears

  • Popilteus Tendinopathy

  • Patellar Tendinopathy

  • Femoral Stress Fractures

  • Patellar Instability

Knee pain is often as a result of a lack of strength or stability in the hip, knee or foot.

Following an in depth assessment of your presenting injury/pain, we will often start by 'treating the symptoms' to reduce your pain. We will then work hard to ensure that 'everything is doing its job properly in the leg' and ensure no area is working too much or too little. This will help to give you long-lasting relief and ensure the problem doesn't return in the future.

However, rarely, musculoskeletal symptoms can be caused by something more serious and it is important for you to know when to seek help. If you experience any of the following you should seek the advice of you GP.

  • the pain you are experiencing is getting worse rather than better despite following the self-management guidance above for the condition in the time frame expected

  • symptoms have not been significantly helped by a trial of medication as expected

  • you feel unwell and suffer symptom such as fever, night sweats or weight loss

  • you experience pain at night, possibly worse than during the day that prevents you from sleeping due to increasing pain and/or difficulty lying flat.

  • you experience a change in your ability to walk including balance problems or weakness/heaviness in your legs

  • you develop a hot and swollen joint for no apparent reason

  • early morning stiffness, lasting for longer than 30 minutes

  • new on-set severe headache
