Chiropractic Adjustments for Knee Pain
Knee pain and dysfunction can have an extremely detrimental impact on your daily activities. Knee pain can cause problems in feet, ankles and the hips too. Those who take part in a lot of sporting activities often experience knee pain due to trauma and overuse, whereas the elderly population experience knee pain due to arthritis.
Types of knee pain:
Types of knee pain can broadly be categorised into either acute traumatic injury such as meniscus or ligament tears/strains; or more long-term issues such as osteoarthritis.
Causes of knee pain:
- Poor spinal alignment
- Changes in weight bearing
- Traumatic injury
- Prolonged sitting
- Being overweight
- Repetitive strain injury
- Underlying disease or pathology (rare)
How chiropractic helps people with knee pain:
There are many factors that can cause knee pain. Therefore, at Droitwich Back & Neck Clinic we carry out a thorough assessment that involves looking at movement and function in the feet, ankles, hips and low back as well as the knees in order to arrive at the most accurate diagnosis.
From there we will create a personalised treatment plan. Chiropractic manipulation with accompanying exercises is an effective treatment for osteoarthritis of the knee and patellofemoral pain syndrome.
