Pain felt under or around the kneecap is one of the most common problems seen by physiotherapists. Patellofemoral pain as it is called is often worse with walking or running up or down hills or stairs, and sitting for long periods of time.
The good news is that it is easy to treat because it is usually caused by biomechanical faults like tight thigh muscles, weakness in your inner thigh or buttock muscles, or an alignment problem where your knee tends to roll inwards.
Treatment targets these faults by setting the client up with a programme to strengthen the weak muscles and to stretch the tight muscles, combined with a regular cycling programme. If you think that you may have patellofemoral pain and need help, contact PhysioPro for some friendly advice.
Are you having a problem with a niggly shoulder pain that won’t go away? You may have problems reaching overhead, lifting things or even lying on that shoulder. Often all that is required is an assessment of the muscles and joints of the shoulder to determine if they are in the right alignment, and also have enough strength and flexibility. Once the imbalances in your body have been detected, you will be given an exercise programme to help correct these problems.
