Best Knee Pain Treatment Brisbane
Knee pain is a common affliction as injury can occur through daily movements and activities, whether it be a car ride, sport or landing unfavourably on your knee. When not appropriately treated, knee pain can develop into a more severe and longer-term injury. These more severe injuries include:
- Meniscus tear: Damage to the meniscus can be caused by awkward pivoting on the knee or through a direct blow. Symptoms include pain in certain ranges of movement or a feeling of ‘locking’ in the knee.
- Medial collateral or lateral collateral ligament tear: Damage to these ligaments typically occur from changing direction. This can be when the foot stays planted or a direct blow to the LCL or MCL of the knee. Symptoms include localised pain, swelling and feelings of instability.
- ACL tear: Damage to the ACL is often caused by a change of direction when the foot remains planted or hyperextension as the body is pushed sideways while feet are planted. Symptoms include an audible popping noise at the time of injury, significant pain and swelling or feelings of instability.

Knee Pain Treatment FAQ
What Are the Most Common Knee Pain Issues and How Are They Treated?
There are diagnoses and knee pain terms that are commonly thought to be the cause of knee pain. How does Barefoot Physiotherapy treat these, and what are the terms?
- Acute Knee inflammation: This most likely presents with a direct injury or incident involving the knee. We’ll run tests on the surrounding structures and refer for imaging if there is a concern of structural injury.
- Persistent Knee pain: This can be from a range of factors and solving to work out where the issue is coming from is key. For example stiffness through the ankle can load up the knee so the knee and ankle both need treatment in order for the knee to improve.
- Knee sprains and strains: Rehabilitation involves first deloading the muscle or strained area, then teaching the body to reload it without aggravation.
- Growing pains: In younger kids, aggravating activities may need to be modified while the body copes with these changes. We use hands-on treatment to reduce the amount of pain received.
- Knee arthritis: Physio and exercise are crucial for the long-term management of knee arthritis. We’ll work individually with each client to find what treatment activities are most suitable and enjoyable.
Barefoot Physiotherapy have considerable experience in dealing with these types of injuries due to their commonality and, as such, have developed a wide range of treatment techniques that have been proven to reduce pain and inflammation. You can be confident that you’re receiving the most up-to-date, practical knee physio Brisbane has to offer, as we are constantly keeping track of the most recent developments in research and treatments.
