Medial Knee Pain
By Rob Parry - Myotherapist
Earlier this year I had a client come in who had suffered Chondromalacia in her left knee 30 years ago. At the time it was thought the best treatment would be to remove her patella, which she had done. She also has suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis for the past thirty years.
When she first came into Elite Myotherapy she was experiencing quite significant pain in her left medial knee. On assessment, she had a lot of pain while squatting normally and could even feel the knee pain while standing on the left leg.
For treatment, I used dry needle therapy through specific points around the knee including the patella tendon and ligament points. We also talked about her lack of stability in her knee and hips. She worked extensively on activating her inner thigh muscle (VMO) as well as her glutes and other hip muscles. Her dedication and motivation to the exercises allowed her to gain strength and confidence in her knee as well as decreasing her pain dramatically.
This shows that Myotherapy is not only about hands on treatment but we can also help in reducing pain with exercises, thermal therapies and home advice.
