Knee Pain

Knee pain treatment, tailored just for you.

Tired of Knee Pain Holding You Back?

It goes without saying that the knee is a crucial joint in our body. Our daily lives often revolve around our ability to be mobile – whether that’s working, socialising, exercising, or anything else. When so much of our lives revolve around knee function, they are bound to be extra susceptible to injuries and problems. But that doesn’t mean that life should have to be put on hold while you wait out a grueling recovery process.

What is Knee Pain?

There is a broad range of causes that can lead to pain in the knee. Accidents, heavy lifting, daily life, and sports can all lead to different types of knee injuries. There are two kinds of knee pain. The first is acute, which is a sudden onset of pain due to an injury. The second is chronic, which comes on gradually and can last for weeks, months, or years. Regardless of the type of pain you have, its impacts on your life and well-being are bound to be extremely detrimental.

All knee pain needs to be addressed as quickly as possible in order to minimise further damage. Repetitive strain injuries and natural results of ageing alike have the potential to become chronic when left untreated. Here are just a few of the common knee pain conditions we treat at our clinic:

What Are Your Knee Pain Symptoms?

With such a wide variety of possible causes for knee pain, it is natural that everyone experiences their symptoms differently. Levels of pain can vary significantly, and some may be able to go about their day normally while others may struggle to walk at all. Knee injuries may result in issues such as pain, loss of motion, stiffness, tingling, and more. Common symptoms of a knee injury include:

Knee Pain Treatments

No two patients are the same. Treatment for your knee injury is going to vary depending on a range of factors – cause of injury, medical history, symptoms, goals, and more. At Melbourne Physiotherapy, Pilates, and Fitness Group, we begin our care with a comprehensive assessment and consultation. From here, we can tailor your treatment plan to ensure you get the most appropriate care. 

This plan could include:


Working with a Physiotherapist is one of the most common forms of treatment for knee pain. Physiotherapy can include joint mobilisation, soft tissue massage, stretching, electrotherapy and remedial exercises for mobility and strength. Dry needling may be useful for arthritic pain and bursitis.

Clinical Exercise

Exercising with a knee injury needs to be done carefully to avoid further damage. Clinical Exercise aims to address knee pain using therapeutic and remedial exercises under Physiotherapist supervision.

Exercise Physiology

Exercise is one of the best tools for rehabilitating knee injuries and chronic conditions. With the help of our Exercise Physiologists, you may improve strength, mobility, and overall fitness. If you need a particular focus on exercise to reduce the weight your knee has to carry, then Exercise Physiology may be a great fit for your care.


Water offers endless benefits. Hydrotherapy makes use of water’s buoyancy and natural resistance to help people recover from a range of different injuries and conditions.


Under our “Co-Ordinated-Care” model, you may be cross-referred by your Physiotherapist to our Podiatry service and vice-versa to get the best outcome for your knee condition.

Other Treatments

Since every injury is different, it’s only natural that treatment is equally unique. If the treatments listed aren’t the right fit for you, we will work to find a solution that will do the trick.

Everyone’s journey is different. Depending on your injury, symptoms, and lifestyle, the length of your treatment will vary. Mild to moderate injuries could possibly resolve in days or weeks with the appropriate treatment, while more serious conditions may take longer.
