Knee Pain

Knee Pain

The knee is constructed to take the impact of the body’s weight when bending and moving. Under the knee is a layer of cartilage that is a natural shock absorber. Injury/s, overuse, aging, and other conditions can cause damage to the cartilage. The condition causes pain and impaired mobility, especially when walking up or downstairs. The pain can be reduced with rest and ice, but sometimes it’s not enough. Common treatments include:

  • Chiropractic
  • Physical therapy
  • Medications
  • Surgery


Common symptoms include pain at the front of the knee. It can be described as a dull ache deep in the knee. This pain can be made worse when:

  • Sitting with the knee bent for a long time
  • Squatting
  • Kneeling
  • Walking up and downstairs

The more the knee is in use, the worse it is. Rest and ice work fairly quickly to help relieve the pain. But if the pain persists even with rest and ice, more aggressive treatment is the next step. Traditional doctors prescribe medication and surgery. But now, more individuals are gravitating to a drug-free, less invasive treatment, like chiropractic.

The Effectiveness of Chiropractic Care

There are plenty of reasons why. From:

  • General health
  • Aches
  • Pains
  • Injury
  • Increased movement
  • Strength
  • Optimal health

Millions are now turning to chiropractic for natural healing, relief, and whole-body wellness. Lack of insurance and the number of treatments are two of the common reasons patients think it’s too expensive. Some may think the price could hinder their decision to seek chiropractic. Chiropractic physical therapy can help with knee pain. They can help bring knee pain relief in several ways by treating the root cause/s. A chiropractor will perform:

  • Knee adjustments
  • Hip adjustments
  • Posture analysis
  • Gait analysis
  • Weight distribution analysis

There are also several chiropractic physical therapy modalities to help with pain, swelling, and arthritis.
