More About Knee Pain
The knee is the largest joint in the body. It is extremely mobile yet highly stable, allowing us to walk, jump and run.It relies on both the stability of the pelvis above and the foot below for peak performance. If these become impaired, it’s ability to be stable yet mobile is compromised and injury often occurs. The knee is often injured during sporting activities, is prone to ‘wear & tear’ and a common problem in adolescents during or after growth spurts.
Many common injuries affect the knee, these include:
- Ligament tears or strains i.e. ACL, MCL
- Patello-femoral Injuries i.e. Tendonopathies, mal-tracking, anterior knee pain
- Bursitis, such as ‘housemaids knee’
- Osgood-Schlatter’s Disease & Adolescent Knee Pain
- Meniscus (cartilage) damage
- Muscle tears
- Overuse injuries i.e. ITB friction syndrome
- Sports injuries such as Triathlon, Cycling, Running & skiing
I’ve just finished a course of treatment with Sheena for a frozen shoulder. I’m delighted with the improvement and Sheena was very professional and knowledgeable. I’ve used goPhysio several times in the last 10 years – back to when they operated from a small terraced house in Chandler’s Ford and Paul and his team have always been very helpful and professional in all respects.

Frequently Asked Questions
There have been many changes with the way health insurance companies cover physiotherapy recently. Subsequently, we require all patients to pay for their physiotherapy appointements up front per appointment. We will provide you with a printed receipt which includes your Physiotherapist’s HCPC number, which you can then provide to your individual insurance company. Depending on your individual policy, you may be able to reclaim some or all of your fees. Policies and cover varies widely now and we are unable to accept any responsibility for the amount you may be able to recaim from your insurance company. You will be responsible for any shortfall.
If you are looking to claim back your fees through your health insurance company, please do let us know, as not all our Clinicains are recognised by health insurance.
We understand that sometimes things come up, however we would appreciate as much notice as possible if you are unable to attend your appointment. We just ask that you give us a minimum of 24 hrs notice of any changes to your appointment so that we can re-allocate the appointment. Less than 24 hours notice will result in a charge. Appointment slots are very valuable and without adequate notice that appointment can’t be used for another patient. We send out both text message & email appointment reminders to help you remember your appointment time.
Please just give us a call or drop us an email if you’d like to change your appointment.
