Causes Of Hip And Knee Pain

Some of the common causes of hip and knee pain are the following: 

  1. Osteoarthritis 

Knee osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis is the most common cause of knee and hip pain among people above 40. Physiotherapy and exercise can help reverse muscular dysfunction and restore normal movement and biomechanics. This can improve gait, relieve pain and result in better function.

2. Injury To Medial Collateral Ligament

Injury to the Medial Collateral Ligament is one of the most common causes of knee pain. An active range of motion prevents stiffness and improves mobility. 

3. Patellar Instability 

This condition results from patellar dislocation, patellar subluxation or general symptomatic patellar instability. The patients often suffer from stability problems with the kneecap. The condition accounts for 11% of musculoskeletal pain symptoms. The condition is more common among women.

4. ACL Injury 

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) of the knee controls the movement of the lower leg bone and allows you to walk, run or move your leg in any direction. An ACL injury results in poor functionality and severe pain in your knee. Physiotherapy can help in decreasing pain and improve mobility. 

5. Sciatica

Hip and knee pain can also result from a pinched sciatic nerve. Imbalances in your stance or gait may result in abnormal stress. This causes sciatica, a condition which results in pain in the knee and hip.

Muscle Strengthening

Muscle Strengthening

If your muscles have lost their strength, they are probably contributing to hip and knee pain. Our expert therapist will recommend specific exercises to target various muscles and strengthen them. 

 Exercises To Improve Mobility and Flexibility

Hip and knee pain can often result in loss of mobility and flexibility- leading to damage to your joints and more pain. We will recommend exercise to regain mobility and flexibility in your muscles. This allows you to move your joints in the fullest range, depending on your body and circumstances. 

 Cold and Heat Treatment

Heat can help in improving your mobility and reduce the pain in your body. This way you can move more comfortably. Ice also reduces pain in your hip or knee and decreases inflammation. 

Ultrasound Therapy

Our physiotherapists may use ultrasound to apply heat deeper into your soft tissues. The heat can improve blood circulation and help in healing. It also reduces the pain in your body.


Some of the most effective treatments for hip and knee pain are the following: 

  • Rest 
  • Over-the-counter pain relievers 
  • Cold and heat 
  • Stretch 

A common cause of hip and knee pain is Osteoarthritis. Some other causes of hip and knee pain include injury to the medial collateral ligament, ACL injury and Sciatica. 

This pain may be caused by pinching of the sciatic nerve. Furthermore, certain musculoskeletal conditions such as sacroiliac joint dysfunction or piriformis syndrome may also cause similar pain.

We will examine your knee for signs of misalignment or damage. We can also conduct tests like x-rays. After the examination is completed, the physical therapist will diagnose a treatment plan for relieving stresses and strains.
