Chiropractic Treatment for Knee Pain


The knee plays a vital role in numerous processes throughout the day. In addition to bending and straightening the lower like countless times throughout the day, then knee also supports the weight of the upper body. Furthermore, in addition to acting as a hinge joint, the knee also has a certain degree of rotational flexibility to it. While this does provide the body with a greater range of motion, it also makes the knee more susceptible to injury. Fortunately, chiropractic care can help those who suffer from knee pain. The first step is identifying the most common causes of knee pain. Then, the right treatment can be provided.

Common Causes of Knee Pain

There are a few common causes of knee pain. Some of the most common issues that individuals develop include:

Acute Injuries: Some people develop acute knee pain. This could be from a car accident,  playing sports, or even while simply walking up and down the stairs. Some of the most common acute knee injuries include knee contusions, ligament sprain, muscle strains, and even puncture injuries.

Chronic Injuries: Some might develop knee pain relate to chronic injuries. There are chronic medical conditions that can slowly degrade the  cushion between the bones of the upper and lower leg. Some of the most common causes include osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. On the other hand, posture, lifestyle, and obesity can also contribute to the chronic degradation of the knee joint.

If someone suffers from knee pain, this can present in a variety of ways. Some people might hear an acute popping in the knee followed by rapid swelling. Other people might notice the gradual development of stiffness and weakness over time. Fortunately, seeing a chiropractor is a great way to address knee pain.

How Chiropractors Treat Knee Pain

Treat the origin of the pain - Most pain meds only resolve the symptoms and do not treat the cause of the condition. Chiropractic care, on the contrary, can be effective for resolving the origin of the pain. This is not to say chiropractic treatment is a universal solution to all health issues. However, chiropractors try to address the cause of pain found in the body’s nervous system.

The point is that the central nervous system controls almost every body function, including reflexive reactions and breathing down to the slightest movements. The nerves are linked to the spine and found in all parts of the body, which means spine health is vital for general wellness.

Low-risk treatment - Chiropractic care has its side effects, but they are minimal and usually include soreness around the point of adjustment, fatigue, or headaches after the procedure. These side effects are temporary and insignificant compared to the effect of realigning the spine and nervous system for a healthier lifestyle. Patients can be assured of the safety of chiropractic care. Compared to the side effects that often accompany other knee pain treatments like medications, chiropractic care is non-invasive with low risks.

Prevent joint dysfunction - The knee joints play a major role in mobility. If there are troubles with the knee, you may struggle to walk, stand, or even get out of bed. Seeing a chiropractor for knee pain treatment can help reduce dysfunction in the joints. The joint pain often traces back to the spine, which is where chiropractors often perform their treatments.
