Symptoms of Knee Pain
Knee pain can cause more than just soreness. Depending on your injury or condition, the affected knee might also be swollen. Along with that, you might also have redness, instability, limited range of motion and weakness in your knee. In some cases, knee problems can prevent you from straightening your knee completely. If you have any of these symptoms, you might have difficulty bending, walking around, putting weight on the affected knee and doing certain activities.
Causes of Knee Pain
Knee pain can occur from a sports injury, accident, underlying conditions, or wear and tear in the knee joint. Certain knee injuries, such as fractures, a torn meniscus, tendinitis, bursitis, and a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), can happen if you fall and land on your knee. Not only that, but, they can also occur if you twist or move your knee abruptly. For example, you might end up with a sports injury in your knee if you pivot while playing basketball or land on your knee after being tackled while playing football. If you have an underlying condition that affects your joints, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, you may experience knee pain and stiffness.
Chiropractic Care for Knee Pain
When you have muscle pain, ligament pain, or any other type of pain in your knee, chiropractic care can help. We can perform chiropractic adjustments to manipulate the affected joint, which helps take pressure off the surrounding nerves. Along with that, the treatments can alleviate your discomfort, swelling, and reduce other symptoms. Dr. Feeney can determine the exact chiropractic techniques to use in order to relieve leg pain and knee pain, whether you have an acute injury or an underlying condition.
Chiropractic treatments are non-invasive and don’t require medication to eliminate knee pain. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, your treatment may also include other methods, such as cold laser therapy or sports rehabilitation.
