The Centre for Physiotherapy is dedicated to getting patients back to pain-free living and activity. In addition to traditional physiotherapy services, we also provide knee pain treatment in Toronto. Physiotherapy can help improve strength and flexibility using therapeutic physical treatments that support you while we tackle your knee pain issue. Whether your knee pain was caused by a sport-related injury or simply by a fall during your daily routine, we’re here to help. We will work with you to find a solution that best fits your needs. If you have knee pain, you may be experiencing some of the following symptoms:
Difficulty walking due to an unstable knee
Limping because of discomfort
Difficulty in walking up or down stairs or steps
Knee locks or will not bend
Knee will not extend
Swelling or redness
Needing to shift your weight to the opposite knee and foot
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please give us a call today or request an appointment with our e-form. You may also wish to speak with your doctor.
There are many ways to lessen or resolve knee pain. One method is by strengthening or increasing the flexibility of the muscles around the knee, which will increase stability. This method usually involves focusing on the quadriceps or front thigh muscles, and the hamstrings or back thigh muscles. It is also possible that there are movement patterns in your routine activities or sports that have negative effects on your knee. We can work with you to correct those movement patterns, and establish positive techniques that will support your knee. Exercises that focus on improving balance can also be highly beneficial.
Arch supports may also help decrease knee pain, because they aid in keeping pressure off the side of the knee that is affected. Some supports include wedges near at the heel. At The Centre for Physiotherapy, we also offer custom knee bracing, which can be enormously helpful in decreasing knee pain and providing much needed support to the knee joint. Our knee brace options include the DonJoy® Defiance III®, which is known as the strongest knee brace available on the market today.
