Knee Pain – Armadale
It has been seen in podiatry how the feet influence the movement of the knee during walking and running. An individual who might excessively pronate or supinate can develop symptoms. If a person’s feet excessively pronate (roll in), then this can cause the tibia to also rotate inwards.
Now if there is not enough motion at the hip in order to rotate inwards as well, then the femur cannot rotate inwards. As a result you get a ‘grinding’ effect of the tibia on the femur which can cause inflammation and pain. This is commonly seen in distance runners, dancers and jumpers.
Our sports podiatrists are experienced at assessing your whole lower limb function to determine the source of your knee pain. We also work closely with a sports physiotherapists who may assist in your management if required.
