The knee can be a fragile joint, which is prone to injury. Often an osteopathic session to balance the quadriceps will be the fastest way to relieve pain and a couple of sessions can be all that is needed.
Most common treatments are to osteo-arthritic, sports or pre/post-operative injuries.
Any knee injury results in quadriceps wasting and this results in patella-femoral pain syndrome (PFPS). All cases of PFPS result in atrophy of the quadriceps too. Therefore, addressing the balance of the quadriceps musculature can relieve pain and in PFPS resolve the issue.
