Knee Pain and Knee Injuries

We see 2 classic types of knee pain as the Northern Beaches Knee pain experts. The first are people who remember hurting their knee. The second are people with knee pain who can’t think of when it happened. We love helping both!

IMPROVE STRENGTH, STABILITY AND MOBILITY WHILE ELIMINATING PAIN

We know how much knee pain can affect your life, so if that’s you, contact us to see how we can get you back to doing what you love. 

As sports physiotherapists, knees make up the majority of our caseload, so you know you’ll be seeing someone with plenty of experience! We love treating your knee injury and knee pain at Fixio Sports Physio and Pain Solutions. 

DON’T REMEMBER HURTING IT?

As the knee sits between the hip and the ankle, the integrity of both of these joints is crucial in maintaining knee function. Often, people present with knee pain, yet a hip or ankle “problem”, meaning the solution is to fix the hip or ankle and the knee pain will go away. 

Knee joints can suffer from overloading the knee in an inefficient manner. Over time this can lead to osteoarthritis (something that we can definitely help with!). 

This overload is especially true for people who have ramped up the amount of activity they are doing. Sound like you? We see it all the time!

Have just started with Dan following a nasty fall and fracture to shoulder. Feel very positive, Dan has explained every process along the way and I feel very comfortable with my treatment plan. The other members of the team are super friendly and always acknowledge me on arrival and make me feel welcome

Ruptured Achilles (99%) - non surgical approach. Dom and the team were great. 6 months in and the leg is as good as the other. Could not recommend Dom more highly.

I started seeing Hayden for a lower back injury with an inflamed disk (Things you do in the gym!!!). After only 8 weeks and some great planning by Hayden and the team I went from not being able to move to being back in the gym and back to doing what I love! I am lifting more now than I was before my injury and generally feeling great. The attention to detail and knowledge the team have is amazing and I could not be happier with the results. For me it has not just been a fix of my back but a foundational learning experience, teaching me how to move, lift and self heal when I need to. Hands down, these guys are THE BEST Physio team on the Northern Beaches!

Hayden did a great job fixing my back. I would highly recommend seeing him. I had severe lower back pain to the point where I was considering surgery. Hayden guided me through the ups and downs, with honesty and empathy, and applying the best up-to-date methods my back made a full recovery.

Been seeing Hayden for 6 months now and he’s guided me to fixing lower back and knee problems I’ve been having for years. He set out a program and what it would cost in the first consultation and has followed through, providing great knowledge and guidance along the way.

It’s really common to have pain without damage on a scan with knees! Every week we see at least 2 new patients who have “nothing!” on their knee scan. These are our favourite people to treat because they tend to improve really quickly in the beginning! Let’s get your life back. 

It depends! After our thorough initial appointment assessment you will have a clear diagnosis and plan of what needs to happen next to ensure you are getting the best outcomes. Some injuries require surgery, while the majority do not. On the balance of probabilities, we will cross our fingers that you don’t need it! 

A simple rule of thumb is “how long have you had pain for?”.  

If you say 6 months, we will probably tell you it will take 6 months.  

For injuries, typical healing time is 12 weeks, though it depends on the type and extent of injury.
