Anterior knee pain is a common orthopedic problem amongst runners, cyclists or anyone who has had a blow to the knee, or exercises often. It can cause problems sitting, walking up or down stairs, and even stop us from running or exercising.

It is important to identify the mechanism of injury which will determine a more exact diagnosis and hence course of treatment. At Bodyreform, Physio in Ponsonby, Auckland we strive to ascertain your exact diagnosis through knee pain assessment, scans, and possible specialist referral.

Knee pain can also be associated to back pain. Pain can be a referral to the knee from the back, giving irritating neural pain to the knee and beyond. Knee pain can also be secondary problems with ITB or iliotibial band syndrome or IBT tightness. This can occur after a long period of running, especially if the buttock is not strong enough to keep the pelvis level. Also if one has been running or walking in poor shoes that make the foot overpronate, or make the foot roll in.

Knee pain can also occur from internal ACL/PCL ligaments inside the knee or from the lateral or medial ligaments that protect the knee from tilting sideways.
