Knee Pain Q&A

What is the Knee's Function?

The knee joint is responsible for bearing the weight of the body when standing, walking, running, and when making most movements. The knee, made up of delicate soft tissues including cartilage, ligaments, and fluid, is highly susceptible to damage. If the knee does not function at its peak, those soft tissues become easily inflamed. This results in serious pain and cause a person to restrict their movements severely.

Why Does Knee Pain Happen?

Knee pain happens for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common causes of knee pain include obesity or excess weight, spinal misalignment, sports injuries, trauma to the knee caused by an accident, and arthritis. Even muscle weakness in the legs can result in knee pain since this leaves the knee without a proper support system.

What Are the Categories of Knee Pain?

Knee pain is usually categorized into one of three types. Acute knee pain is the type of pain that occurs after an accident, for example, a sports injury like a dislocated knee. Secondary knee pain is another category of knee pain. This is the type of knee pain that results from another condition like arthritis. Finally, chronic knee pain is the type of pain that comes from conditions like bursitis or patellar syndromes. Chronic knee pain is diagnosed when the pain persists for 6 months or more.

What is the Chiropractic Treatment for Knee Pain?

Chiropractic care can help with knee pain because spinal misalignment is one of the leading reasons for knee pain today. Through chiropractic adjustments, the body can be restored to full balance, pain can be alleviated, and the knee can start to heal naturally. Massage therapy can also be an important part of a knee pain treatment plan. Therapeutic massage can alleviate inflammation, restore circulation, eliminate built-up scar tissue, and relax painfully constricted soft tissues around the knee.
