Hip, Knee, Ankle and Foot pain

Hips, Knees, Ankles and Feet

Pain from arthritis, sports injuries, sprains and strains, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis are common problems affecting these areas. Because these joints are closely linked and work together when walking, running and cycling etc, pain in one area often leads to pain in another.

Runners may complain of knee and ankle pain because they have compensated for an ankle sprain and that has put more pressure on the knee joint. People with hip arthritis will often complain of knee pain on the opposite side, due to putting more pressure on the ‘good leg’, to compensate for the painful hip.

As physiotherapists we appreciate these mechanical interconnections and treat the whole person not just the part that hurts.

Treatment can help by reducing muscle tension, promoting ligament healing, improving joint flexibility and suggesting exercises to help reduce pain and promote tissue healing.
