Scroll down2

Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of various ages, significantly impacting their mobility and quality of life. MOOV Physiotherapy in Ottawa offers specialized care for those suffering from knee pain, employing advanced techniques and personalized treatment plans.

Understanding the Prevalence of Knee Pain

Knee pain can arise from a variety of causes, ranging from acute injuries to chronic medical conditions. It is one of the most common musculoskeletal complaints that bring people to medical attention.


Impact on Mobility and Lifestyle

Knee pain can severely limit one's ability to move freely, perform daily activities, and enjoy an active lifestyle. It can also lead to other health issues due to reduced mobility and the psychological impact of chronic pain.

Understanding Knee Pain

Knee pain can vary in intensity and can be a symptom of many different conditions. Accurate diagnosis is key to effective treatment and long-term relief.

Common Causes of Knee Pain:

  • Ligament Injuries: Such as ACL tears, often occurring in sports.
  • Meniscal Tears: Caused by twisting or turning quickly, often with the foot planted while the knee is bent.
  • Arthritis: Including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Tendonitis/ Tendonosis: Inflammation of tendons, often from overuse.
  • Bursitis: Inflammation caused by repeated overuse or injury.

Your Path to Knee Pain Relief

At MOOV Physiotherapy, we understand that knee pain is a personal and often complex issue. Our approach is to provide a tailored treatment plan that addresses the specific needs and goals of each patient.

Personalized Treatment Plans

Based on the assessment, our team will develop a customized treatment plan. This plan is designed to not only alleviate your current pain but also to prevent future knee problems.
