Experience better Knee Function with Physiotherapy

Your knees play a vital role in supporting your body weight and enabling movement, and you frequently put them to use for countless activities such as walking, jumping, and bending. They are complex joints that facilitate your ability to take part in so much that we do, so when they become painful, they can greatly impact your life.


Knee pain is a common issue and can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, or lifestyle. One of the most notable ways knee pain can affect you is by its impact on your mobility. Tasks that are generally simple, like walking up steps or getting out of bed, can become challenging and frustrating and this often leads to decreased independence. Persistent or severe knee pain can mean your exercise and social activities are reduced, further impacting your quality of life, mentally and physically.


Because knee pain can have such a significant negative effect, seeking professional help can be significantly beneficial. At Eastside Physio + Co, we are experienced in treating knee pain and are dedicated to providing high-quality care so that you can regain better knee mobility and function.

What is Knee Pain?

Your knees work like hinges and are the largest joints in your body. These important joints consist of three bones and an intricate network of soft tissues that strengthen and protect the joint. The function of your knees leads them to undertake a wide variety of movements that involve rotation, compression, flexion, and extension while carrying your body weight and anything you are holding. The combination makes the knee vulnerable to a variety of issues that can cause pain and reduced mobility.


Knee pain refers to discomfort in the knee joint or surrounding structures, which can be accompanied by a decreased range of motion and ability to weight bear. Being mindful of your symptoms and the underlying factors that may be involved, and seeking appropriate professional treatment, can be pivotal in managing your knee pain and restoring functionality.
