Get treatment for your knee pain
Whether you’ve twisted your knee while walking downstairs or have suffered a nasty blow to the knee while playing rugby, quick, easy access to the right treatment can get you out of pain and back to better mobility again sooner.
Sports injuries and general wear-and-tear are common causes of knee pain.
Most knee injuries will improve naturally over time, but if your symptoms don’t resolve you may benefit from further investigations and expert advice.
If wear and tear in your knee is causing severe pain and limiting your mobility, you may benefit from further treatment.
Whatever is causing your knee pain, you’ll appreciate an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment as soon as possible.
Here at The Park Hospital, we provide private knee treatment for people based in and around Nottingham, as well as for those living further afield. We help to get people out of their debilitating, limiting knee pain and back to doing the things they most enjoy. We would be delighted to do the same for you.
Your knee is known as a ‘hinge joint’, but it also has a small amount of rotational movement, which helps us as we twist and turn our leg. It is a weight-bearing joint, which means that any problem in the knee can affect our ability to move safely and easily.
Many people will require knee surgery because of the effects of osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis in the UK and can affect all ages. Damage to the cartilage of the joint surfaces causes stiffness and pain in the knee. As the damage becomes worse, the knee becomes stiffer and may seize up eventually.
Sports injuries are another very common reason for people to require knee surgery. Contact sports like rugby may involve heavy blows to the knee. The rapid twisting and turning movements associated with sports like squash, tennis and football, generate massive forces within the knee. Any of these may lead to a bone fracture or damage to a ligament or meniscus within the joint.
Many knee problems can be treated without the need for any type of surgery. Common non-surgical treatments include:
If your knee symptoms don’t respond to conservative treatment, you may be advised that an operation could be an option.
Consultants at The Park Hospital can provide a wide range of surgical treatments for the knee, from minor to complex, including:
Your consultant will carry out a clinical examination of your knee, and possibly your hip, back or lower leg if they think a problem in any of these places may be causing your knee pain.
Depending on your symptoms and the physical examination of your knee, you may then be referred for additional tests or investigations. Our comprehensive imaging facilities include X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound, so these can all be quickly and easily arranged for you if needed.
Once the results of any tests are back and your consultant has been able to confirm a diagnosis, they will discuss the results with you and explain suitable treatment options.
For some conditions, your consultant may carry out a type of keyhole surgery known as a knee arthroscopy. An arthroscope is a thin telescope with a camera and light at one end. Small cuts are made in your knee and the arthroscope is placed into the knee to give your consultant a clear view inside the joint. If any issues are discovered during this procedure, like a ligament tear or cartilage damage, these may be able to be treated during the arthroscopy, cutting down the need for further surgery.
For osteoarthritis, The Park hospital offers a full range of treatment options from physiotherapy and injections to surgical treatment, including partial and total knee replacement. Your consultant will discuss the full range of options available and help you to choose the optimum treatment option for your individual needs.
Most people are referred directly to us by their GP, physiotherapist (or sports physiotherapist), osteopath, chiropractor or their private medical insurance provider. Others self-refer to avoid delay in getting out of knee pain.
We treat private medical insurance and self-pay patients.
While many of our patients live close by in Nottingham, excellent road and public transport makes it very easy to visit us from further afield as.
