Your Knee Pain Solution

Is your knee pain stopping you from doing mundane activities smoothly? Do you find it difficult to climb stairs, get up from the floor, or getting out of your car? Have you given up running or exercising as a result?

If you’re tired of having “bad knees,” it’s time to let the therapists at Adaptive Allied Health in Booragoon get to the bottom of your pain and help you find knee pain relief.

More and more research has revealed that the knees require movement to remain healthy. Limiting your daily activities to avoid knee pain may be tempting, but it is unlikely to help your knees and may worsen them. Finding knee pain relief can be difficult, which is why it is critical to seek the assistance of a skilled physiotherapist.

Our Physiotherapists have the tools to properly assess your case and uncover the source of your knee pain. After the assessment, we can determine exactly what will work for you to get you back to a healthy, active lifestyle.

Our Physiotherapists can shed some light on your confusion and frustration around your knee pain. We can give you hope, clarity, and encouragement to free yourself from this physical and mental burden, that is knee pain and injury.

Why Am I Having Knee Pain?

Your knee is a hinge joint with only forward and backward movement. If your knees are properly aligned, you should be able to stand, walk, run, and dance with ease. You will not be able to move as freely as you would like if you have knee pain.

Although it may appear counterintuitive, there are times when knee pain is a symptom rather than the cause of your problem. By sending pain signals to your brain, the knee can alert you to a problem in the foot or hip region. Of course, there are times when your knee pain is caused by a problem or injury in the knee itself.

Fortunately, our physiotherapists at Adaptive Allied Health in Booragoon are experts at getting to the root of your problems and identifying all of the factors that may be associated with your specific condition. So, if you’re not sure what’s causing your symptoms, let our team conduct a full-body assessment to identify the causes of your knee pain and help you resolve it once and for all!

Knee Pain Can Be Caused By A Number Of Factors, The Most Common Of Which Are:


Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis that causes knee pain. When the cartilage that surrounds your joints deteriorates, the joint no longer has enough cushion between the bones. This causes joint inflammation, which causes varying degrees of pain and dysfunction.

Ligament Injuries

Ligaments join our bones together. The ligaments in your knee function similarly to leather straps in holding the bones together and keeping your knee stable. Ligaments can be stretched or torn during sudden movements.

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL): It is located in the center of the knee and controls rotation and forward movement of the shin bone.
  • Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL): It is located in the back of the knee and controls the backward movement of the shin bone.
  • Medial collateral ligament (MCL): The medial collateral ligament is on the inside of your knee and provides stability to sideway motions.
  • Lateral collateral ligament (LCL): The lateral collateral ligament is on the outside of your knee and provides stability to the sideways motions.
Knee Bursitis

Bursae are closed, fluid-filled sacs that cushion and aid in the creation of a smooth gliding surface to reduce friction between body tissues. These fluid sacs protect the tendons from the bone.

An injury or overuse can cause bursitis (inflammation of the bursae), which prevents tendons from gliding smoothly over the joint and can be painful or even debilitating.

Cartilage Injuries

There are two common types of cartilage injuries:

  • Meniscus tear: The meniscus acts as a shock absorber and aids in knee stability. When the knee twists suddenly, either contact or non-contact activity can cause a meniscus tear. Normal wear and tear can also cause this injury.
  • Articular cartilage damage: The articular cartilage is a smooth covering on the bones that allows for frictionless sliding from one bone to the next. Direct trauma or wear and tear both cause damage to articular cartilage.

The cartilage in your knee may be damaged if you twist it quickly while bearing weight on it or if you sustain another type of trauma. Prolonged inactivity or repetitive movements can also cause fraying and, eventually, tearing of the cartilage.


Tendons are fibrous connective tissues that connect muscles to bones. Tendinitis occurs when a tendon becomes inflamed as a result of repeated movements. It is common in jumping and landing motions, as well as sports such as skiing, cycling, and hurdling.

The patellar tendon is the tendon that connects the patella (kneecap) to the shinbone, allowing you to kick, run, and jump. Patellar tendinitis is common in runners, skiers, cyclists, and people participating in jumping sports.

Knee tendinitis can make it difficult to walk, get out of a chair, climb stairs, or participate in sports. Our physiotherapists can diagnose and treat knee pain, allowing you to get back to doing what you enjoy.


In a car accident, the knee bones, particularly the kneecap (patella), can be damaged. Simply taking the wrong step and landing awkwardly or directly on the knee cap can result in a knee fracture.

A thorough evaluation by a licensed physiotherapist at our Booragoon physiotherapy clinics is the best way to determine the true cause of your knee pain and assist you in finding effective solutions!
