Our Cambridge Osteopaths find most knee pain is easy to treat and is not the result of arthritis. Subtle imbalances within the hip and foot cause a rotational force at the knee resulting in pain and inflammation of the tendons and cartilage (menisci).
Other times poor running style or an awkward gait can produce irritation in the tissues of the knee. Only in exceptional circumstances is surgery required. The majority of cases we can dramatically relieve by working on the different structures of the knee itself and resolving any imbalances at the neighbouring joints of the leg.
Due to an osteopath’s highly developed sense of touch, specific problems can be identified and treated with ease.
