BEST FOOT FORWARD: Don’t let your knees affect your life

With Christmas over and New Year Resolutions made (maybe even already broken or forgotten), many of us will be putting our best foot forward and will start to exercise.  Sadly there are also many of us who wish they could exercise, even if it meant only going for a walk (the best form of exercise) but can’t because of their knees.

There is a Clinic here on the Costa del Sol that can help.  This Clinic has no surgical affiliation, avoiding surgery wherever possible and has had so many successes with knees that they opened a Specialist Knee Unit.

When dealing with any part of the body, it cannot be stressed how important a proper physical assessment is.  Here, you will get a detailed and thorough evaluation by a Consultant English Chartered Physiotherapist who is registered with both the UK’s Health Professions Council (HPC) and the Spanish National and Local Authorities.  If necessary, thermal imaging, X-rays and/or MRI scans can be arranged, often on the same day, and onward referral to an orthopaedic consultant can also be made if deemed necessary and appropriate.  It should be noted that the clinic is also fully registered with all the local and national authorities.

This Knee Clinic has many unique and technically advanced tools to aid in the conservative treatment of knees.  There is the cutting edged Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MRT), currently the only such system in Spain.  MRT is a fully medically trialled and tested derivative of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scanner technology.  MRT delivers energy to the cartilage cells at a specific frequency, forcing these cells to harden and repair, and also drastically reduces bone inflammation, the major cause of arthritic pain.

Interestingly, foot posture problems are the main cause of non-specific knee pain and this can easily be rectified by the fitting and wearing of prescriptive orthotics.  A computerised gait analysis system, unique to mainland Europe provides for the necessary accuracy and a video assessment helps both your consultant and yourself pinpoint areas of concern.  Prescriptive orthotics from this system are small, discreet, unobtrusive and can be worn in the majority of shoes.  They may be small but do not underestimate the power of such devices!

A straight knee is essential to how you walk but after trauma, be it an injury or surgery, the knee protects itself by being in a slightly “bent” position.  This new specialist knee clinic has patient controlled technology that gently stretches and straightens that knee, helping to prevent future problems.

Injury affects muscle control and strength and new specialised biofeedback technology stimulates muscle activity improving strength, stability and function around the knee.

The clinic also carries a range of supplements which helps to keep you, your knees and your cartilage, healthier for longer.
