The Knee Resource was founded by Richard Norris & Daniel Massey, two physiotherapy knee specialists from the U.K. They have a passion for knee rehabilitation and extensive clinical experience working alongside orthopaedic knee surgeons within the NHS.
They decided to create The Knee Resource after discovering they were experiencing the same common issues within clinical practice.
• Patients often reported stories of conflicting information and didn’t fully understand their knee condition or treatment plan.
• Healthcare professionals frequently couldn’t access reliable knee information fast enough in order to fully support knee diagnosis and management.
Therefore, to support both patients and healthcare professionals, The Knee Resource was established, presenting the best available evidence for information you can trust.
