Do you have arthritic pain in your lower limb?
Many load bearing joints can be the source of arthritic pain, and as Physios, we treat a huge number of hip, knee, foot and ankle problems.
The majority of hip problems tend to be associated with deficits in muscle control and strength. Most people notice an increase in hip pain as a result of a change, or an increase, in their exercise routine. Rehabilitation around the hip has to focus on the control of the pelvis and the leg (particularly the foot).
The management of more specific conditions such as congenital hip dysplasia, Perthes disease and arthritis requires an inter-disciplinary team approach to ensure the best treatment is delivered in a timely manner.
Physiotherapists have extensive experience in the management of complex hip conditions.
There are numerous conditions that affect the knee from mal-tracking of the knee cap, to more complex problems such as ACL rupture, meniscus tears, arthritic changes, and ligamentous sprains to name but a few. In the main the management of most knee conditions require a comprehensive assessment of the specifically structures and of the musculature around the knee. We will undertake a comprehensive assessment to determine the cause of your symptoms. We will always keep you informed of your treatment options and potential outcome. The therapists also have extensive experience in the management of complex knee conditions including post-operative management and rehabilitation.
