Physiotherapy is a special form of exercise that can help to improve the function of your knee joints. It is sometimes used by itself to treat knee pain and other symptoms, but it is also used alongside surgery.


You may have physiotherapy before your operation in order to build up your strength and mobility. Physiotherapy will also help you to recover after the procedure. You may be taught a series of simple exercises to complete at home or have sessions with a physiotherapist who will perform manual therapy on the joint. A physiotherapist can also provide advice on managing physical activities when you have knee problems. Physiotherapy can have a big impact on your mobility and the activities you can complete.

If you would like to learn more about non-operative treatments or the surgical options for knee treatment, get in touch to arrange a consultation with Mr Matt Dawson at the Cumbrian Knee Clinic. As an experienced specialist, he can advise you on the best approach to treating your knee pain and improving your mobility.
