Knee Pain Physio Services
If you injured your knee during sport or daily life, then you may need to see a knee pain physio. A knee pain physio can help with knee pain for injuries, post-surgery, or arthritis. At Hands On Osteopathy and Physiotherapy, our knee pain clinic in Singapore can provide you with professional advice as to how you can reduce your pain whilst at the same time strengthen your knee to improve the rate at which you recover. Throughout our sessions, we will cover a wide range of techniques to help you recover. These include:
- Stretches and exercises
- Ice and heat
- Ultrasound massage
- Electrical nerve or muscle stimulation
The treatment we have to offer will depend on the main cause of your pain. In most cases, we can provide you with treatment that helps you to recover, rather than requiring surgery for your knee.
What You Can Expect In Our Sessions
In our first session together, you will work in a one on one environment with your physiotherapist to design a tailored treatment plan. We will begin by discussing your current lifestyle, including diet and levels of exercise. Once we have this information, we will discuss how we can help to rebuild the strength and movement throughout your leg and knee, helping to alleviate pain and get you on the road to recovery. To do this, we will take a look at the movement of your knee. We will look at how it bends, straights, and moves. We may also look at the following:
- Your ability to balance
- The level of pain in your knee
- When the pain occurs during movement
- Whether or not you can stand on a single leg
- The strength of your muscles in the back and front of your knee, as well as your thigh
To distinguish the areas that are causing you pain, we may ask you to complete some simple exercises . Our exercise can include whether or not you can hop on one leg. If the pain is particularly bad, we can provide you with crutches, a walker, or special shoes that can be used at home to enhance recovery.
Following your initial recovery, the aim will be to strengthen your leg muscles. This will help to take some pressure off of your knee which will help to reduce pain. We will provide you with exercises that can be completed in the comfort of your home as well as how you should practice them. Exercises include the following:
- Hamstring curls
- Single leg dips
- Straight leg lifts
- Wall squats
- Balancing exercises
At the start of your recovery, a few of each exercise at a time should be enough. As you grow stronger, you may need to add weights or additional reps to enhance recovery times. If a particular exercise hurts, it is always good to stop and tell us straight away. That way, we can change your routine if needed. Recovery, in general, will take several weeks depending on the severity of your injury and whether or not you have had surgery.
