Knee pain can be complex and take time to resolve. An osteopath will work with you to try and understand the cause of your knee problem. This is important as it impacts the estimated recovery time, which you will discuss with your osteopath.
Osteopathy For Knee Pain
Depending on your age, fitness, knee pain diagnosis and how long you’ve had this and other musculoskeletal pain, Susannah discusses your care pathway options. As an osteopath we are treating the body as a whole.
Referred pain is not to be confused with radiated pain. We can have pain behind the knee or pain at the front of the knee. Pain in the knee can travel up and down the knee. It can also be accompanied by pain in the groin or pain in the low back. Knee pain accompanies pain in the gluts occasionally with walking over time.
We may use a variety of massage, rhythmical articulation and stretching techniques to try and improve the movement in your knee and reduce tension in any tight muscles.non surgical treatment

Treatment is different in every individual and we may work to improve mobility and tissue health the joints above and below the area, i.e. the hip and the ankle and sometimes the low back if we feel they are contributing to your knee pain.
