The knee is a sophisticated piece of biological engineering, capable of supporting considerable weight while providing a remarkable range of motion. However, its very complexity makes it susceptible to various conditions and injuries that can result in pain, instability, and reduced function. Knee pain can arise from various sources, such as the bone structure, ligaments, tendons, or cartilage within the knee joint or from overlying muscles and soft tissues. It can also be due to systemic diseases like arthritis.
At Eastwood Physiotherapy, we are steadfast in our commitment to accurately identifying the root cause of your knee pain. Our detailed diagnosis and assessment plan is the first step in this process. Upon your arrival at our clinic, we commence with a meticulous review of your medical history and a physical examination. This examination encompasses an evaluation of your pain levels, knee stability, mobility, strength, and alignment.
We are particularly attentive to the assessment of your gait (the way you walk), posture, and functional movement patterns, as these can often illuminate underlying issues contributing to knee pain. In certain instances, more specialized tests such as balance and proprioception tests or neurological and orthopedic assessments may be conducted to provide a comprehensive understanding of your condition.
When necessary, we coordinate with medical professionals for further investigations using imaging modalities like X-rays, MRIs, or ultrasound. It is only through this thorough and methodical approach to diagnosis and assessment that we can devise the most effective treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
