Continue reading to learn about common causes of knee pain and how we can treat it.


Causes of Knee Pain

Knee pain is a frequent complaint that affects people of all ages and activity levels. While the source of knee discomfort can vary, some of the most common causes include:

  • Overuse injuries: Repetitive activities like running, jumping, or squatting can strain the muscles, ligaments, and tendons around the knee, causing pain and inflammation.
  • Arthritis: This degenerative condition causes the cartilage in the joint to wear down, resulting in stiffness, swelling, and pain.
  • Meniscus tears: The menisci are small, C-shaped pieces of cartilage that act as shock absorbers in the knee. Tearing one can cause significant pain, swelling, and instability.
  • Ligament sprains and strains: Ligaments connect bones at a joint. Sprains occur when a ligament stretches beyond its normal range of motion, while strains involve tearing the ligament fibers. These can lead to pain and instability.
  • Impact injuries: Falls, direct blows to the knee, and other sudden impacts can damage the bones, cartilage, ligaments, or tendons, causing significant pain and swelling.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive and holistic approach to managing knee pain. Our chiropractor will assess your posture, joint mobility, and range of motion to identify the underlying causes of your knee pain. Based on this assessment, they may recommend the following treatment options:

  • Chiropractic adjustments: Gentle manipulations to realign the spine and joints, improving joint function and reducing pain.
  • Soft tissue therapy: Techniques like massage and stretching can help loosen tight muscles and improve flexibility, aiding in pain relief and mobility.
  • Rehabilitation exercises: Specific exercises can strengthen the muscles around the knee joint to improve stability and reduce the risk of future injury.
  • Cold laser therapy: This non-invasive technique uses low-level laser light to reduce inflammation and promote healing.

Chiropractic care can be a valuable tool in managing pain, improving mobility, and enhancing overall well-being. Our chiropractor will create a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and lifestyle to help you feel like yourself again.
