Diagnosing knee pain
A thorough examination by a doctor or physiotherapist can help establish a precise diagnosis of your knee pain. He or she may also recommend some treatments specific to your individual case. For instance, if you’re specifically wondering what causes the pain behind your knee – you may get a targeted answer and treatment plan from your health care provider addressing your unique needs. So, be sure to visit your doctor or healthcare professional.
Getting relief for knee pain
Getting relief from your knee pain symptoms can increase the joy you find in the small things you do throughout the day – getting in your car, bending down to tie your shoe, sitting down in your favourite chair, or even bike riding through the park at dusk.
To get effective relief from knee pain, use Voltaren for relief of pain associated with recent (acute), localized muscle or joint injuries such as sprains, strains or sports injuries (e.g. sprain of ankle, strain of shoulder or back muscles). This is typically as an adjunct to other measures such as rest for the relief of discomfort associated with such injuries.
Voltaren helps you get back to your daily routine and is indicated for temporary pain relief. Not for chronic, long-term pain.
There are a number of holistic treatments or management methods for knee pain you can try at home, that can complement the medicated pain relief you might be using.
- Appropriate strength training
- Maintaining a healthy weight
Always talk to your doctor before trying any new pain relief techniques to see if they are right for you.
Whatever course of treatment you and your doctor decide on, being in control of your pain can be the first step towards less pain, and finding joy in movement and all that it brings once more.
