Suffering from Knee Pain?

Knee Pain - Ashford Osteopathic Clinic

Is there pain on walking or going up or down stairs? With some knee pain there can be noticeable swelling and/or bruising. It can sometimes be painful and stiff first thing in the morning or after periods of inactivity. Sometimes knee pain can improve by gentle movement whereas with other types of knee problems movements can worsen the pain. Some problems of the knee can result in a feeling of locking, catching or instability where the knee feels like it is going to ‘give way’. There can also be popping/clicking/snapping/grinding noises associated with the problem.
