Helen, I had a steroid injection into the knee joint space, not the fat pad and it improved my over all knee pain a bit, but then my fat pad pain seemed to be emphasised. My quads are atrophied and my calf is smaller now too also in spite of exercises. At the moment I am trying to increase daily steps and get stronger that way and just doing exercises once a day. I need KT tape around knee to stabilise it while I walk. I tried reducing my walking for a while but it did nothing except weaken my leg further so I am trying to carry on daily life as best I can. I’m also seeing a pain management physio to try and get tips on how to divert my attention away from my knee ( not easy ) I’m still icing knee after exercise. Hope you get some relief soon.
When Claire was recommended to me I'd been having knee problems for over two years. The product of her clear diagnostics and advice reassured me and meant that just a few months later I completed a 300 mile hike and ran my first half marathon. It feels wonderful not to worry about my knee every day and that is thanks to Claire.
Claire delivers a highly informative and excellent value for money one day course. Claire’s wealth of experience through her own clinical practice, research and teaching makes this one day course a must on the CPD calendar. A great mixture of relevant theory and practical’s on her one day course has instantly enhanced my own clinical practice to the benefit of my patients. Many Thanks Claire

I attended a day course on PFJP with Claire Robertson recently and I found her "hands on approach" extremely helpful and informative. I went back to my daily clinical practice and felt like my missing piece on the knee jigsaw had been found.
