What Causes Knee Pain

One cause of knee pain, although not common, is a dislocated knee. This particular knee injury occurs when one of the two bones that make up the knee joint become out of place. Although the condition doesn't sound serious, it causes a great deal of pain for the patient.

Knee bursitis is another condition that affects the knee, but it causes the small fluid-filled sac in the knee, known as the bursa, to become inflamed. It sometimes arises from an injury but can also occur due to a complication of osteoarthritis, infection, or overuse.

The frozen joint syndrome is also a possible cause of knee pain. Additionally, it reduces the range of motion in your knees. It results from inflammation, thickening or shrinking of the capsule in the joint, and scarring. In some cases, it begins after you have surgery on your knee.

You could suffer from a strain or a sprain in the muscles, tendons, or ligaments around the knee. A strain occurs when a muscle or tendon stretches or tears while a sprain occurs when a ligament stretches or tears. It's possible for you to suffer from tendinitis, which is a condition that causes inflammation in the tendons.

Diagnosing Knee Pain 

Our chiropractor diagnoses the cause of knee pain by gathering information regarding your medical history. The next portion of the diagnostic treatment consists of our chiropractor evaluating the range of motion in your knee and examining it for any visible signs of issues. It's possible you'll need to undergo imaging, so our chiropractor can look inside of your knee and the surrounding portion of your leg to assess it for issues.

How a Chiropractor in Charlotte Can Help With Knee Pain

One of the most common chiropractic treatments for knee pain is exercise therapy. This particular treatment consists of a chiropractor guiding you through various exercises that work the muscles and other soft tissue surrounding the knee joint. Ultimately, this strengthens the muscles and other soft tissue. Additionally, it also enhances your flexion and function in the area. This promotes healing and can also help you reduce your pain.

You may need a brace for your need that helps support it. It's possible that our chiropractor will also prescribe hot and cold therapy and advise you on lifestyle changes you can make to prevent injuries in the future.
