Chronic Knee Pain – Caught In The Middle with Nowhere To Go!
Josh HAD chronic knee pain! Meet Josh below! He had chronic knee pain for almost 2 years and was unable to resolve completely until he visited the Pro Sport Physiotherapy Huddersfield Clinic. Knee pain is a very common issue we see in the clinic on a daily basis! Acute knee pain episodes can be treated easily and efficiently if the REAL CAUSE of the problem is identified EARLY!
Chronic Knee Pain – Caught In The Middle with Nowhere To Go!
Chronic Knee Pain Treatment – IT’S STILL FIXABLE!
With Chronic knee pain (usually greater than 6 weeks but realistically greater than 3 months) is a little more difficult to fix because the brain has now adapted to the pain and is finding ways to ‘work around’ this knee pain! The brain is very intelligent and will find a way to get the job done for you! Unfortunately this is not the best way for your body and over time you develop other issues such as back ache, neck pain and even elbow pain from that knee joint issue that has not been addressed!
So how do we fix Chronic Knee Pain So Quickly?
Pro Sport Physiotherapy Huddersfield contain a unique set of skills that allow us to identify exactly what is happening or not happening in parts of the body that puts excessive pressure on the knee joint! Our video below is an example of exactly how we figure out what is happening when you walk. If our physiotherapist knows the issue when you walk then they will know the issue when you have to run, twist or whatever your body has to do for you!
Chronic Knee Pain – The Poor Knee Joint is Caught in the Middle with nowhere to hide!
As outlined in the video above, we fix chronic knee pain cases including those that have even failed surgical intervention by finding out EXACTLY what is not doing its job and fixing that! Once we do that, we take away that hammer that is banging the poor knee joint every single step. Once we take that hammer away the knee joint can now actually heal once and for all. The knee is not getting a pounding because the foot, hip or even opposite shoulder joint is now doing its job walking, running, lifting, twisting and turning!
The Problem with Machines and Surgery
Please do not misunderstand, machines and surgery can be useful for helping with symptoms. However this is the equivalent of putting a plaster over the bruised knee. If the cause is not addressed in the first place it will come back again. Or worse still it could present elsewhere in the body. This is why our physiotherapists at Pro Sport Physiotherapy are not big fans of machines. We have found through our work with the Huddersfield Giants that if you can find the real cause then the problem and symptoms settle down very quickly. This is because the hammer is not banging on the knee anymore!
If you are suffering from knee pain or had knee pain and now have a different issue up or down the body, please get in touch and get this sorted once and for all!

What people think about us...
“I have seen Dave O’Sullivan on several occasions over the last few years and I have always been 100% satisfied by the work he has done and the exercises and advice he has given. In fact, I am often amazed by the way he can work out what is causing what and how to put it right. Usually only 2 or 3 visits are needed, plus exercises done at home. I completed my first marathon 3 years ago, largely due to his expertise – I could hardly walk a week before race-day. I would definitely recommend Pro Sport Physiotherapy (and have done!)”Huddersfield
“Just thought i would drop you a line to let you know how im getting on with the stretches and the core work that you suggested. I have been doing these for around an hour to an hour and a half each day since i saw you, the difference i have found is massive. Its hard to explain how i feel whilst running and cycling now, it just feels like my body is more planted. The cyclo cross is finished now, i done my first fell race today on only six running sessions maybe not the best idea in the world however because of the excersises i have been doing my body felt stronger than it ever has. I have no technique at running downhill and would normally end up with a tight back doing that type of race where as this time no tightness. Thanks for all your help and advice”County Durham
“I’d been struggling for the best part of a year with what I (and my old physio) thought was a damaged hamstring. I’d heard about Pro Sport and read about their Soft Tissue Release Techniques and thought I’d nothing to lose by trying a new approach. Thank goodness I did….. Darragh Sheehy correctly identified I actually had a partially trapped Sciatic nerve and set about “releasing” it…. That’s another way of saying pain…..but it really is “no pain, no gain”. After one session I left feeling considerably better. I ran at the weekend with a huge grin on my face……I was thinking “I’m back!” A few sessions later and following Darragh’s exercise regime I’d improved again and within a few months had a new 5k PB.”Huddersfield
“Pro Sport Physiotherapy are amazing! I was having trouble with my hip whilst running over a certain distance. Shane worked out within 15 minutes that a tiny set of muscles near scar tissue was preventing my glute and core from firing. I worked on my exercises for a week and returned to my next appointment to find I was cured. A couple of sessions followed to ease my aching muscles now they were working and I am now fully fit to run my first ever half marathon this autumn. I have recommended the company to anyone who will listen. They are professional, knowledgable, fast workers and friendly. 5 star service with a smile :)”Huddersfield
“5 years after breaking my leg and 3 surgeries later, Dave O’Sullivan was recommended to me after I received NHS physio where I was told I was a lost cause! Dave’s work is fantastic, I felt an improvement after the first visit and now feel better than ever. He explains everything, follows up the treatment with easy to follow videos and is a nice guy. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dave!”Flockton, Wakefield
