We’ve Treated Thousands of Knees
As experts in the treatment of lower limb injuries, Hunter Physiotherapy have effectively treated thousands of Newcastle people with knee injuries since they opened their doors at Broadmeadow in May 1995.
Our physiotherapists are highly trained in the diagnosis and expert intervention of knee joint injuries.
Why Does My Knee Hurt?
Knee pain may be in any area around the knee and can result from diverse causes such as sports injuries, running injuries , falls, overuse injuries (e.g. running or jumping), work injuries, general wear and tear (arthritis) or it may even be referred from another area of the body (e.g. back injuries ).
What To Expect Re Knee Physiotherapy At Hunter Physio
Our physiotherapists complete a thorough examination; and question you regarding your knee injury; and then implement a short and long term physiotherapy plan to help your knee recover.
Usually, the short term plan involves symptom relief; such as taping, massage, dry needling, stretching, icing, strapping and sometimes braces and/or crutches. Once the knee joint is ready to take further loading, we initiate the longer term plan which involves strengthening the muscles around the joint to maintain and improve function, and to reduce the possibility of re-injury.

Our physiotherapists also excel at post-operative management of all your knee surgeries.
