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.
Here at Blue Mountains Podiatry, knee pain is a condition that we see every day, and our expert therapists have a proven track record in getting the best outcomes for all our patients.

Our goal is to remove your pain as opposed to providing a band aid, quick fix solution.
