Knee pain

What causes knee pain?

Knee pain is a common problem with lots of different causes, including:

How do we treat knee pain at the Mansfield Clinic?

The most important thing is to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your pain, and Dr Allfree will make a careful and thorough assessment of your knee to try to determine the nature of the problem.

Once a diagnosis has been made, a number of different treatment strategies will be recommended , including one or more of the following:

  • Manual therapy such as osteopathy
  • A specially tailored exercise programme.
  • If your knee pain is severe, painkillers may not be enough to control the pain. In this case, you may have cortisone injected into or around your knee joint. 
  • Shock wave therapy may be beneficial in certain cases that do not respond to cortisone injections.
  • If all conservative measures fail, surgery may be the only other option. If surgical advice is needed, Dr Allfree will be able to arrange a referral.
