Statistics show that roughly one in three Americans will experience knee pain in their life. In some cases, the pain is minor and goes away without any lingering effects. In other cases, the pain is chronic and become progressively worse with age. There are ways to relieve knee pain, including chiropractic treatment.

What Causes Knee Pain?

Being the largest joint in the human body, the knee is a complex structure consisting of the femur, tibia, patella, cartilage, ligaments and tendons. When injury or degeneration occurs to any of these components, it can produce pain.

Tendinitis, for instance, is a condition in which the knee’s tendons become inflamed. Basketball players, marathon runners, cyclists and other highly active individuals often develop this condition due to the constant stress placed on their knees. Osteoarthritis is another common condition that causes knee pain.

Affecting up to 13 percent of the U.S. adult population, it’s characterized by degeneration of the cartilage joint within the knee. As the protective cartilage wears away, bone-on-bone contact occurs.

These are just a few conditions that cause knee pain. Other common causes include gout, dislocated kneecap, medial collateral ligament (MCL) and bursitis.

How Chiropractic Treatment Can Help

Some people assume that taking an over-the-counter pain reliever is the best way to treat their knee pain. However, this usually does more harm than good. While pain-relieving medication may offer temporary relief of your knee pain, it can damage your liver in the long run when used over time.

Chiropractic treatment offers a safer and more effective way to relieve knee pain. Through visual observation as well as X-rays, a professional chiropractor will first determine the cause of your knee pain. Next, he or she will recommend treatment.

Treatment options for knee pain varies depending on the underlying cause. If osteoarthritis is causing your knee pain, your chiropractor may recommend daily exercises to strengthen the muscles and supporting structures.

A professional chiropractor can also provide you with a knee brace to mobilize your problematic knee and protect it from further injury. This is particularly useful if inflammation is contributing to your pain. A brace will mobilize your knee to reduce stress on its structures.
