Knee Bursitis

What is Knee Bursitis?

Knee Bursitis causes knee pain due to swelling or irritation of one of the small fluid filled sacs (knee bursa) that cushions the knee joint bones, muscles and tendons caused by kneeling for long periods of time on hard surfaces, overuse (doing the same motion over & over again), a direct blow to the knee, arthritis and sometimes infection.

Knee bursitis symptoms

Knee joint pain, knee stiffness, knee swelling, and redness around the area of the knee joint. Knee bursitis types are: Prepatellar bursitis (housemaid’s knee), pes anserine bursitis, infrapatellar bursitis and suprapatellar bursitis

Knee bursitis treatment

Your physiotherapist will physically assess for tenderness and swelling, test painful movements and muscle strength, use hand on physiotherapy, shockwave therapy, dry needling, and taping.

Client Testimonials

Having been dogged with injury I decided to have a full prehab/FMS screen with Colette at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic. My starting score was 12/21 which placed me in a high risk injury bracket but by doing my corrective exercises, I not only played through the whole season un-injured but I also got my score up to 17/21 by the end.

I had spent a significant amount of money elsewhere on unwearable orthotics, before coming to Imokilly Physiotherapy Clinic. The orthotics I got here are by far the most comfortable to wear, and I wouldn't put a pair of shoes on without them!

Having had a long long history of back-pain which was then managed surgically with a dynamic fusion I was nervous about commencing any exercise. My neurosurgeon recommended that I attend a physiotherapist-led clinical Pilates class and I was lucky to find Sarah. Her entire approach is aimed at individualised rehabilitation, namely the individual assessment, tailored exercise programmes, small classes and follow-up emails. The standard of Pilates service is far superior to a fitness-based drop in class, and hence ideal for those with injuries.

Chronic Achilles tendinopathy was limiting my ability to progress my marathon training and I knew that I had to tackle it properly to allow it to heal. Although it was frustrating to step back from training, I am now running painfree and hoping for a marathon PB
