Running or Walking into Knee Pain? Bounce Physiotherapy Balcatta Can Help!
Most people who decide to take up walking or running in
order to lose weight or improve fitness, tend to give up easily when they are
confronted with knee pain. These are some of the ways that a Bounce
Physiotherapist (Balcatta) can assist:
Assess how you move using mirrors & videos to teach new
movement patterns. This may involve increasing strength and control of your
quadriceps, hip muscles and core utilising specific exercises.
Soft tissue release techniques, taping and stretching
especially around the calves, knee cap, hamstrings and hips.
Analyse if you require orthotics or different footwear to
improve foot position.
Devise a training program that will limit the amount of knee
pain and progress your exercise loads safely without making your pain worse.
