If you want to eliminate knee pain so that you can be mobile again, you’ve come to the right place!
Knee pain can be both frustrating and debilitating. Depending on the dysfunction, pain can be felt as a sharp niggle, a deep ache, a feeling of instability, or a feeling, or a feeling of total restriction. Poor biomechanics and previous injury are two of the most common causes of knee pain. Due to sedentary lifestyles, muscles can become ‘out of whack’, with some muscles becoming tight and over-active and some weak and dormant. Distinguishing, which muscles are responsible for knee pain is paramount when developing a treatment plan. You practitioner at Melbourne Muscular Therapies will determine which of your muscles needs to be released, and which muscles need to be activated and strengthened. Previous injury, and scar-tissue can be another main cause of Knee Pain. Injuries to the ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and meniscus within the knee can cause varied levels of pain. It is important when recovering from a knee injury that you receive quality deep treatment to the knee itself to ensure no build up of adhesive fascia and scar-tissue will cause you more pain.
Our technique involves slow and deep penetrating strokes at the sources/causes of the problem, to unravel and realign any knotted or dysfunctional tissues and send a message to the brain to help the tissues relax and stabilize. Whether you’re a desk jockey with issues building up over time from bad posture, or you have pulled a muscle from a sporting injury or freak occurrence, we can get you back up and running like new again.

Why does my knee hurt
Knee Pain is most commonly caused by dysfunctional biomechanics or previous injury.
What exercises help relieve knee pain?
Releasing tension within the quadriceps, TFL, lateral glute muscles, ITB, and lower hamstrings muscles can relieve tension and pain within the knee. Strengthening the glutes and quads can also minimise knee pain
Is heat or ice best for knee pain relief?
If you have just suffered a knee injury when there is significant swelling, Ice is recommended for the first 24-48 hours. Following this time, and for any chronic cases or knee pain, we recommend the use of heat. Heat will increase blood flow and allow the innate healing properties of the body to fire into action.
