Assessing the Knee! Do you have Knee Pain?

Hi there. This is Dana Ranahan of Body Works Sports Physiotherapy in North Vancouver and today I’m going to talk about how we assess a knee injury.

  • First we look at mobility of the knee, how the knee bends, and if it’s able to go through its full motions.
  • We then look to determine if there is any swelling or pain.
  • Often then we’ll look at stress testing some of the ligaments if it’s been a sporting injury test a more specific motion.
  • There are a whole host of these tests we can use to determine what is wrong with the knee

Once we go through this process, we can tailor your rehab accordingly.

If you have any questions give us a call at 604-983-6616
