In daily life, our knees are subjected to constant biomechanical (movement) loading and impact forces – even more so when we participate in sport and other physical activities. Such is the strain that we put on our knees, that research indicates that in our life time, at least 25% of us will have pain in a knee joint. Being overweight and/or obese will further increase the incidence of knee pain as there will be more impact forces and pressure on the knee joints.

Get The Best Results
Knee problems can have a very negative impact on one’s quality of life. Caused by various factors: direct trauma, repetitive loading, weight and ageing, knee injuries can in turn lead to a loss of mobility, inability to tolerate exercise and disrupted social activities. Some injuries are so severe that surgery is necessary, and whilst there are a number of different knee operations designed to repair and prolong the life of the knee joint, pre and post-operative care is vital to getting the best results and that is where Physical Edge can help.
