The main causes include:

A traumatic event, like a car crash or skiing accident
pain
Moving awkwardly, perhaps feeling something click or “go” in the knee

Not enough exercise, weakening reflexes and muscular support of the knee

Injuries, traffic accidents, exercise routines or just having too much fun!
pain
Wear and tear as you get older, leading to inflammation and disturbance of your knee

Knee Pain Explained In Plain English

Knee pain affects our movement due to a combination of issues with your muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves.

Knee pain ranges from an annoying niggle or click that comes and goes, to severe pain that can stop you walking.

Sometimes knee problems resolve with time, rest or exercise. More often the problem doesn’t get better properly and feels stiff, painful or vulnerable so you are afraid of getting back to normal activities. This is when a professional opinion and treatment is really helpful.

Untreated, these pains can go from short easy to fix problems, to long term and harder to fix problems. Nobody likes taking pain killers or contemplating surgery. It’s important to choose a treatment which is safe, effective and proven thousands of times over all over the world.

What Are The Major Causes Of Knee Pain?

We've already dealt with some of the common causes such as trauma and wear and tear. However, let’s dive in a little deeper to see which back conditions Osteopathic care provides a safe non surgical solution for:

Cartilage trouble

Knees have floating cartilage rings inside them that can get damaged or get out of place. Because they are attached to tissues near the surface, an Osteopath can free the cartilage and balance the knee again, often recovering freedom of movement.

Ligament Strain

Often following an accident, this needs support, good circulation and the rest of your body working properly to get better quickly. An Osteopath will diagnose the exact strain, and give you expert treatment and exercises if you need them.

Arthritis

The knee often suffers if the back or hips are out of balance, leading to uneven wear on the knee. The good news is that if the whole system is balanced, the knee stands the best chance for repair and recovery.

Bursitis

This can be very frustrating, and is due to abnormal strain around the knee from unbalance muscles and ligaments. Osteopathic treatment will balance and relax theses structures for you, getting you on the road to recovery fast.

How Does An Osteopath Treat Knee Pain?

An Osteopath will only use their hands and brain to skilfully and logically assess your symptoms. We train for many years to feel what is normal and what is in trouble, and Osteopathy is a fantastic method for getting your body back in tip-top shape again.

We don’t use machines or ask you to do endless exercises that you find difficult and don’t help. We just get your body working properly by aligning everything, and getting the parts talking to each other. Treatment is typically very gentle and relaxing. Healing comes naturally without drugs or surgery.

This means you can be well in a truly natural way, by in the end the miracle of your body healing itself.

And here's the best bit... By fixing the root cause of your problems, frequently people find that related issues that are connected also show drastic improvement, so you get help with all sorts of issues you didn’t even realise were connected.

Osteopath Reviews 

From clients benefiting from a better quality life

I have hypermobile EDS made much worse by antenatal elastin and I could not have survived my pregnancy without Katie. I could barely walk for my first and was in a lot of pain but with Katie’s expertise I’ve been mobile and essentially pain free for this second pregnancy which for me is quite a miracle. Physiotherapy couldn’t help at all. Osteopathy has changed my life!

I have been a regular client for over 5 years and every therapist I have been treated by here was an excellent and knowledgeable osteopath. I wholeheartedly recommend this practice!

A very delayed review, but Katie was a life saver when I was struggling with very intense back spasms. The online booking form was very useful, Katie was friendly and happy to answer my questions in between appointments and sent me helpful stretches so I could help myself in my own time as well. Would definitely recommend.

Giulia is very knowledgeable about what she is doing and has helped me learn how to deal with ageing and my mobile knee! She is very gentle, at times I wonder if she has done anything and then realise the next day that she definitely has and am pleased with the evolving results.

I am seeing Giulia regularly since a few months ago and I can not recommend her enough. I had issues with my back, to that extent that I was constantly in a terrible pain for a long time, not been able to do anything I used to do. With Giulia's knowledge and I would say her magic hands, I almost completely recovered. I am now back to life, and can not thank her enough. It is all down to Giulia. I am so happy I found this clinic and this lovely lady, full of patience and understanding for clients, highly professional Giulia who knows her job so well.

Elyse at Fulham Osteopaths was recommended to me as I wanted someone who could sort my knee (I'd torn a tendon, arthritis and a lack of cartilage) . It was important that I had someone gentle who would encourage me to do the necessary exercises, rather than bully me into it. She is excellent - very knowledgeable, professional and has a very holistic approach. The exercises she has given me have helped considerably - I have started gently and then gradually built up. I can highly recommend her and have already asked her to help my son.

We have been to see Elyse for our baby a couple of times, she is very knowledgable and offers lots of useful advice. She is incredibly kind and gentle and was a joy to chat to while helping our little one. We’ve come away with lots of helpful tips on feeding and digestion.

We found this place just before our baby was born and we knew we wanted to take him there as soon as he was born. When booking an appointment the receptionist immediately suggested Katie as she was the “baby specialist”. We absolutely loved Katie and our little one was super relaxed after both appointments. I would suggest you take your newborn to see Katie as soon as, even if you do not haveany specific concerns! We realised so much has changed since both sessions, baby is so relaxed and happy. Thank you Katherine and the whole team .

Just simply the best!Katherine was absolutely the best when dealing with my 2 months old baby and my postpartum pain. After 2 magic sessions my pain in my hip and my leg disappeared completely. She has also worked on my posture and showed me some really useful exercises I can do at home. Katherine was really gentle with my baby, fun and easy. It seemed like my little boy really enjoyed it! Just after 2 sessions we saw some good results, baby could turn his head not only to the left but to the right as well (his preference was mostly to the left which flattened his head a bit on one side). Also his sleep was much improved, which can't be any better for us! Katherine was really caring, and even gave me a discount voucher! We cannot be more happier than that! It was a truly pleasant experience for me. The receptionists were really helpful too with sending me my requested invoices and finding the most flexible timings for me. I can really recommend Katherine in Fulham Osteopaths, you won't regret.
