Osteoarthritis is the most common joint condition in the world. Knees are commonly affected with the symptoms being pain, swelling, stiffness, reduced range of movement, reduced mobility and disability. Exercise is a core management strategy and physiotherapists can assess the knee and plan a treatment.
Although conditions such as arthritis are degenerative, physiotherapy can help with pain relief and slow down the progression of the condition. Another major joint problem area is the knee. Physiotherapists are closely involved in knee assessment and treatment.
