Knee pain, also referred to as Jumper’s knee or Patellar Tendonitis and involves localised pain below the knee cap, especially after exercise.
Failing to address the underlying cause of your knee pain can manifest into increasing discomfort and disruption to your daily tasks.
Shockwave therapy also helps with a variety of non-healing tendonitis injuries. We also have the latest 3D foot scanning systems to identify any issues and produce bespoke insoles to rid your pain.
Knee pain, also known as Patellar tendonitis, is a huge problem for many people. If you need help treating your knee pain then we can help assess the cause of it, and offer a suitable treatment based on your lifestyle.
Patellar tendonitis is knee pain caused as a result of overuse of the knee e.g. by running causing microtears. This may heal incorrectly causing more damage and knee pain. Additionally, incorrect gait/walking can contribute to knee pain.
One of our Chiropodists will evaluate your condition by assessing your walking pattern, and physical examination of your knee joint and foot structure. The specific area of pain will be pinpointed and then a treatment plan designed accordingly.
Shockwave therapy is a form of treatment to manage knee pain. A water-based medium is applied to the painful area to allow shockwave transmission then the probe is applied to the area and impulses administered. In some cases, just one session is enough to see long lasting results.
Shockwave therapy works by using pulses to create ‘micro-injuries’ which then stimulate the body to heal itself naturally. As well as being used for knee pain it can be used on other parts of the body such as elbow, shoulder and heel.
