What is Knee Pain Physiotherapy ?
Knee Pain Physiotherapy is a common problem that can originate in any of the bony structures compromising the knee joint (femur, tibia, fibula), the knee cap (patella), or the ligaments and cartilage (meniscus) of the knee. Knee pain can affect people of all ages, and home remedies can be helpful unless it becomes severe.
