DO YOU HAVE KNEE PAIN? 

​At Gold Coast Podiatry clinic, Hip To Toe, your structural Podiatrist looks for the underlying cause of your knee pain.

Knee pain is often the result of misaligned knees tearing and straining, which leads to knee pain.

When the knees are misaligned it is very common for the feet and hips to also be misaligned.

Our podiatry treatment realigns the joints in the feet, knees and hips to take the strain off the knees and reduce your pain. Combined with podiatry exercises we have many clients that are back to living active, pain free lifestyles.

AVOID KNEE SURGERY

ARUNDEL, GOLD COAST

HAVE YOU BEEN TOLD KNEE SURGERY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TREAT KNEE PAIN?

DO YOU WANT TO AVOID KNEE SURGERY? ​

Our clients tell us they want to avoid going under the knife!

And that is understandable.

​In order to avoid knee surgery, you need to know what caused the knee to wear unevenly in the first place.

When the feet are misaligned this can cause the knee to become misaligned. When the knee is misaligned it can not function correctly. On an x-ray the knee can look like bone on bone.

By realigning the joints in the feet and knees, the knee can function better and the pain can recede.

If your goal is to avoid knee surgery then call to see if our podiatry treatment is right for you.

AVOID PAIN AFTER SURGERY

ARUNDEL, GOLD COAST

HAD KNEE SURGERY BUT STILL HAVE KNEE PAIN?

DO YOU STILL HAVE KNEE PAIN AFTER KNEE SURGERY?

Many clients come to us after they have had knee surgery but still have knee pain.

When the joints in the knees are misaligned this leads to uneven wear and tear, which can lead to osteoarthritis, which can lead to a knee replacement.

However, if the underlying cause is not addressed then the new knee will wear and tear unevenly which means there can still be knee pain.

Or worse, the other knee can start to hurt, because it is now unable to deal with the strain being put on it, which can lead to more surgery that could have been avoided.

If you still have knee pain after knee surgery make an appointment with one of our experienced practitioners who treat the underlying cause of the knee pain to prevent you needing more knee surgery.

DOES YOUR CHILD HAVE OSGOOD SCHLATTERS SYNDROME?

radiograph of a human knee with osgood-schlatter disease james heilmanChildren with knee pain are often given the diagnosis Osgood Schlatters. ​The pain usually intensifies with high impact activities, like sports, and decreases with rest.

This x-ray shows the spur that develops with Osgood Schlatters. The spur is the result of the patella ligament tearing out of the shin bone leading to a bony lump or spur.

The Podiatrists and Physiotherapists at Hip To Toe have treated hundreds of children, getting them back to sports without knee pain and improving their performance.

WHY DO CHILDREN GET KNEE PAIN?

Knee pain usually comes with high impact activity, like running, jumping, twisting etc.

These activities require the knee to bend and move differently than walking.

If the knee is not strong and stable then the strain we put on the tissues can cause them to tear and pull. These constant microscopic tears can cause the pain.

This can lead to an inflammatory response where the knee gets hot, red and swollen.

WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT CHILDREN’S KNEE PAIN?

In order to stop the pain, first we need to know where it is coming from.

Podiatrists often use orthotics to treat childrens knee pain. However, this doesn’t address the internal issue, it is only providing an external support to realign the joints while it is being worn. When the orthotics are not worn the joints are still misaligned.

Our podiatry treatment gently moves the joints into different positions and our podiatry exercises help them hold the joints in the new positions. By addressing and changing the internal problem the result can be long lasting knee pain relief.
