To determine what is causing the pain or functional limitation in a specific area (for example, the knee), it is important to understand the impact of the areas above and below. This important principle is referred to in concepts such as the joint by joint approach, regional interdependence, and the kinetic chain.
For many of the knee problems we see, the best treatment solution includes addressing problems (often weakness the client is not aware of) in the hip and/or the foot and ankle.
For the low back, addressing problems with the pelvis/hip and the thoracic spine is important.
All our physiotherapists are skilled in the process of identifying the underlying cause(s) of your pain and treating accordingly.
