Knee pain

Our practice provides podiatry care for knee pain to the local Faulconbridge and Katoomba communities well as the surrounding suburbs of; Springwood, Glenbrook, Blaxland, Wentworth Falls, Katoomba, Blackheath and Penrith.

Knee pain is commonly seen in athletes of all sports but especially in runners, with over 50% of running injuries being knee related. Knees are constantly under an enormous amount of stress. This can lead to weakness; instability and overuse of soft tissue structures surround the knee joint. Poor foot mechanics and inappropriate footwear can be a common cause of knee pain and can lead to conditions such as Patella Femoral Dysfunction, Osteo arthritis, Osgood Shlatters disease and patella maltracking.
