The knee is a joint that relies heavily on ligaments, cartilage and muscle control to maintain stability during activity. These structures are subject to large amounts of force during sport and daily life and as a result we see a lot of clients for knee physiotherapy in Colchester. If the knee is subject to a force which exceeds the loading capacity of the tissue which supports it then an acute injury can occur. Soft tissue structures of the knee can also become reactive if the volume of load that the knee is use to is suddenly increased.
