What are the Common Causes of Knee Pain?
Knee pain can be a result of many factors ranging from muscle or tissue strains or the result of falling off a ladder. Here are some common causes of knee pain that our chiropractic care specialist treats frequently.
Dislocated Knee: This happens when an excessive or sudden force is exerted on the knee joint forcing your thigh bone to shift out of position. The force is caused by accidents, falls, or a knock during a sports competition.
Knee Bursae: The knee bursae is a fluid-filled sac that cushions pressure points in your knee joint. Inflamed bursae can exert pressure on the knee joint tendons thus causing searing pain.
Frozen Knee: A forceful twisting or sudden knee rotation can cause the knee joint to become stuck at a certain angle where it can neither bend nor straighten.
Strains & Sprains: The knee has a large number of ligaments and tendons that support the different parts. Knee sprains can occur due to muscle weakness, trauma suffered in sports activities, and overpronation.
Tendinitis: This is a condition caused by repetitive force on the knee area. Such force may be in the form of incorrect posture, or overuse of the knee area.
A Chiropractor Can Help Ease Knee Pain
A Chiropractor will provide a diagnosis to discover the root cause of the disabling pain in your knees. From the results of the diagnosis, the chiropractor will then develop a specialized treatment plan to help rehabilitate the knee and get you back to your feet.
