Physiotherapy Knee Guide

Perhaps you have experienced an injury to your knee, or maybe you are just having unexplained knee pain? Physiotherapy on knee injuries could be the answer to your problem. There are many problems which can affect the mobility of the knee, and all can result in restricted movement and long term pain. Here we look at the different conditions which could result in knee pain and the treatments which you could receive to speed your recovery.

Types Of Knee Injury

There are several different reasons why you could require physiotherapy on knee injuries. Here are some of the various problems which you could be experiencing that could benefit from this form of treatment:

  • Ligament tear or sprain
  • Tears in the cartilage
  • Generalised pain in the knee cap
  • Rehabilitation following knee surgery
  • Arthritis
  • Infection
  • Gout
  • Strains in the tendons

Treatments For Knee Pain

Traditionally, the treatment for many types of knee pain involves taking anti inflammatory medications. Patients are generally advised to rest and to apply cold compresses or ice packs until any swelling has gone down. However, physiotherapy on knee injuries can be extremely effective. A trained physiotherapist can pinpoint the source of the pain and can offer an appropriate treatment to restore strength to the muscles and bones of the area while restoring greater function for a better quality of life.

Are There Any Free Private Treatments For Knee Pain Near Me?

As there are limited options for medical interventions when it comes to knee pain, it is easy to see why physiotherapy on knee injuries can be the ideal solution. Although some treatments may be available free of charge on the NHS for UK residents, many more people could take advantage of free private treatments that can improve their mobility and speed their recovery.

Which Free Private Knee Pain Treatments Could Be Available In My Area?

Depending on which area in the UK you live in, you could benefit from free private healthcare treatments for your knee problems. Sometimes, this could be in the form of free medical supplies, such as heat packs or ice packs to reduce swelling and pain. In some cases, a course of free physiotherapy could also be supplied by a trained professional in your area to speed your recovery. We cover most areas of the country, so there’s always a high chance you can be on your way to better treatment in no time.

How Long Is The Recovery Time For Knee Pain?

The amount of time it could take to recover from your knee problems depends on the cause of the problem in the first place. If it is a minor strain or sprain, you could recover in two to four weeks, however if the source of your pain is a severe sprain, a fracture or pain following surgery, the rehabilitation period could be much longer and could take several months.

Is It Possible To Speed Up My Knee Pain Recovery?

Although some knee problems clear up in a couple of weeks, others can be a long, drawn out recovery period, with ongoing pain and long term restricted mobility. Physiotherapy on knee injuries can help to shorten that recovery time and help restore mobility more rapidly.
