Injuries / Knee Pain

Knees are very susceptible to injury due to the nature of their anatomical location. Instability and weakness of the hip and poor foot mechanics all place the knee under enormous stress that often leads to knee problems.

  • What causes knee pain?

    Often the cause of knee pain is related to abnormal lower leg biomechanics. If the knee tends to rotate inwards or outwards in gait it can place stress on structures around the knee. Over time with repeated daily and physical activity, this can lead to chronic overuse injuries that can be incredibly painful and debilitating.

  • What can a podiatrist do to help?

    Placing too much pressure on the knee joint, including patella (knee cap), ligaments, muscles and tendons during physical activity can result in knee pain and injury. This can happen when you land awkwardly after a jump, run on uneven ground for an extended amount of time, or are changing directions in quick succession.

    At Your Podiatrist we can accurately assess and measure the hip, knee and foot positions in gait and determine if this is a contributing factor to your knee pain.
