Many people (especially athletes) sustain injuries to their knee. Of the four major ligaments found in the knee, the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and the medial collateral ligament (MCL) are often injured in sports. The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) may also be injured.

When people talk about torn knee cartilage, they are usually referring to a torn meniscus. The mensicus is a tough, rubbery cartilage that is attached to the knee’s ligaments.

 

Treatment of Knee Injuries

For comparatively mile knee injuries where there has been no tearing of ligaments or cartilage, treatment consists of the R.I.C.E protocol to limit swelling or any bleeding (only in the acute stage). The knee can be bandaged and soon expert manual therapies can be applied and exercises can be resumed.

For more serious injuries a specialist or orthopedic surgeon will assess the damage and decide if you need surgery.

 

Treatment following surgery

If you have had surgery on your knee, it is likely that your leg has been immobilised for some time and you will need to get back into a program of rehabilitation which includes exercises and expert bodywork for the affected tissues (and associated tissues that may have weakened or wasted), as well as the muscles that have compensated during your injury.

Here at Thrive we can provide a team of professionals to assist, and oversee your recovery.

Testimonials

Maria, Dalston

“I had suffered from back pain (sciatica) for 8 years on and off. During a particularly painful episode I decided to try acupuncture and i really can’t recommend it enough – I had six treatments with Ross over six months ago and I haven’t experienced any back pain since.”

Cinnamen, Shoreditch

“For years I have suffered neck pain, back pain, migraines and felt constantly tired and drained, but after a few sessions of acupuncture with Ross the migraines have finally stopped, and my day to day working life has become so much easier. I highly recommend Ross as a skilled practitioner. He has been a wonderful support also for the emotional stress that is a result of my years of pain.”

Jan Quinlan, Surrey

Could I please request a bottle of you magical tincture for the bladder. My condition is a 1000x time better but it is just for those occasions when I feel I need a little extra help alleviating any niggling discomfort.

Fixed from physical pain, fixed emotionally, more energy, perspective and the will to get back up and live another day. This may all sound very big but it's what happens... there are other days when I just need a "top up" and that works fantastically too! So what ever you are going through from a bit of tiredness to a life crisis I
