Knee Pain in Croydon

radiating knee painAt Croydon Sports Injury Clinic Ltd, we see patients of all ages suffering from knee pain. Whether they have a chronic degenerative injury, such as arthritis, a traumatically induced injury from playing sport, or discomfort associated with ageing, they experience various bothersome symptoms.

Here are some common ones:

  • Swelling
  • Joint locking
  • Tenderness
  • Loss of movement
  • Weakness or instability
  • Difficulty moving around, walking, running, etc.

Many people live with chronic discomfort, using prescription or over-the-counter medication, bracing, injections, or topical creams to get some relief. At our practice, we want to help get to the root cause of your discomfort and provide relief naturally and non-invasively.

What to Expect

The first step in getting relief is to schedule an assessment with Dr. Roddy Knight (Chiropractor). The assessment includes ensuring that the knee is moving in the right planes and ranges of movement, and in the right direction, without undue discomfort, tenderness or joint locking.

He will also check the strength and sensation around the joint. Our chiropractor doesn’t just focus on the knee, because suffering could be caused by discomfort and problems in other parts of the body, such as the back. A person’s discomfort may be linked to how their gait or walk is, so the issue may originate in their feet.

The thorough assessment that Dr. Roddy (Chiropractor) provides you with will help him craft a personalised care plan to help get you better.

Please allow 30 minutes for this first visit. Any subsequent sessions are 15 minutes.

Additional Imaging

If our chiropractor determines after your assessment that further imaging is needed, we can refer to a network of specialists privately, and local private hospitals or private clinics that offer scanning, such as MRIs, CTs, X-rays, and ultrasound.

Our Approach

We take a multi-pronged approach to addressing your discomfort. Dr. Roddy (Chiropractor) may use one or more of the following:


Chiropractic exercises focus on strengthening the muscles above and below the knee, while increasing range of motion.

Soft tissue massage

With this type of massage, the joints and soft tissues are exercised to lessen muscle tension and soreness.

Physiotherapy machines

These are used to help assist in recovery.
Therapeutic ultrasound

This therapy can help relieve pain and improve physical function in patients with knee osteoarthritis.

Interferential therapy

With this therapy, electrical current is used to reduce swelling, alleviate pain and stimulate muscle.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon will I see results?

While every patient will respond differently, most people have good results within six sessions.

Do you offer care for all ages?

Yes, from teens to seniors and those active in sport, we see patients of all ages. Usually, young patients have ligament injuries or Osgood-Schlatter related issues, and the elderly often have degenerative osteoarthritis.

Those who range in age from 18-65 usually have overuse injuries that could come from running, cycling, or climbing.

How is your care different from a medical doctor’s?

The medical approach typically includes medications, injections or even surgery. At our clinic, we provide a natural alternative that addresses the root cause.
