Treatment and Prevention
Treatment will vary, depending upon the cause of your pain. This can range from:
• Orthotic insoles or arch supports for your footwear to restore the alignment of the foot, ankle & knee
• Therapy – such as strengthening exercises
• Support strapping
• Anti-inflammatory medication
• Steroid injections
What Can Cause Knee Pain?
It can be caused by injuries, mechanical problems, types of arthritis and other problems.
Repetitive strain on the knee joint from twisting or high impact activity can often cause pain.
Fallen arches and over-pronation of the foot can lead to twisting stresses on the knees, as can a limb length discrepancy, where one leg is longer than the other, causing pain and inflammation.
