Walking down often causes severe pain complaints. This knee pain can significantly reduce the enjoyment of exercise. But daily functioning can also be seriously hampered by knee pain. Do not keep muddling on with knee pain, but make an appointment with a podiatrist.
Causes of knee complaints
There are various causes for knee complaints. Muscle weakness of the buttocks and thigh muscles is mentioned as one of the causes. However, there is often a relationship with the feet. An abnormal position of the foot or an abnormal gait can contribute to overloading your knees.
In that case your knee will compensate for the 'wrong' settlement of your feet in one way or another. That is why it is important to look for the source of the knee problem. Only when the cause of the complaint is found can a successful treatment plan be drawn up.
Handling complaints by PodoPro
At PodoPro podiatrists, the research focuses on finding the cause of the knee complaint. Your walking pattern and the position of your feet are analyzed. A treatment plan will then be drawn up in consultation with you. If there is a movement restriction in your ankle or foot (blockage), the podiatrist will use manual therapy to solve this problem.
In addition to 'loosening' your ankle and / or foot, a podiatric inlay (sole) will often be advised to optimize your walking pattern, so that your knee complaints will reduce or disappear completely.
