What Causes Knee Pain?The most basic of daily activities from bending down to pick up the grocery bag, climbing the stairs, walking from your car to the office, or just getting out of bed can feel so difficult when you are experiencing knee pain. Knee pain definitely has a negative effect on your ability to function optimally.
You do not have to decide to live with the pain, reduce your activity level, or start taking more pain medication. Have you considered the route of chiropractic treatment? Oftentimes, a licensed chiropractor can start to address the underlying issues that are likely causing knee pain (when it isn’t from an acute injury), and use a combination of techniques to help alleviate pain. There are usually several angles of approach when it comes to treating knee pain this way. Some common treatments include using ice to reduce inflammation around the joint and some soft tissue massage to help improve the knee’s range of motion. In addition, the doctor can apply chiropractic manipulation and mobilization techniques in the areas of restricted movement in the knee as well as surrounding joints. The combination of methods can help reduce knee pain while simultaneously increasing range of motion in the joint and improving its overall function.
