Knee pain is one of the more common conditions treated at Revive Physio. There are many different structures that make up the knee complex, and therefore accurate diagnosis is highly important. Similar to the hip, the knee can have pain referred from lower back injuries.

Some of the common symptoms you can experience with a knee injury includes swelling and stiffness around the joint, constant aching, sharp or shooting pain when using the knee joint, knee weakness or instability, popping or crunching sounds while sitting or standing, and lingering pain.

It’s important to see a physiotherapist for a diagnosis and to help you both manage and rehabilitate your knee injury.
