Chiropractic Physical Therapy For Knee Pain

Chiropractors don’t only work on the spine. Doctors of chiropractic are trained to treat the entire musculoskeletal system. They could be called joint specialists. 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 a number of chiropractic physical therapy modalities to help with pain, swelling, and arthritis. Knee pain causes can vary. A chiropractor can determine the underlying cause, relieve the pain, and help prevent future injury.  
 

Chiropractic and The Body’s Musculoskeletal System

Many think that treating knee pain comes down to surgery or painkillers. Surgery can be the best option for some, but it is always best to exhaust conservative treatments, which chiropractic physical therapy is one of the most effective. Pain medication can be appropriate but with the addictive potential about they are best avoided unless absolutely necessary. Chiropractic offers an alternative to pain medications and even surgery for certain cases.

Causes For Common Knee Pain Issues

Here are some of the most common causes of knee pain along with the ways a chiropractor can help to relieve the pain and treat the underlying issue. Treatment plans vary depending on the specific circumstances/conditions.

Knee Bursitis

Bursitis is inflammation of the fluid-filled sac located in the joints between bones, tendons, and muscles. The sacs are called bursae and are essential in proper joint function. They help reduce friction during the course of regular joint movement/function. Knee bursitis is commonly caused by overuse and misalignment. It can be caused while:

  • Walking
  • Running
  • Kneeling
  • Stretching the knee
  • It can also cause swelling around the front of the kneecap
 

Chiropractic Treatment

The reduction of pain and swelling are the first steps of chiropractic physical therapy. This is achieved with:
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Ultrasound
  • Hot and cold therapy
  • Cold laser therapy
Once the pain and swelling are addressed then the cause of the inflamed bursa can be determined. This is done through adjustments of the knee, hips, or spine to help correct the issue and promote proper recovery and prevention.

Patellar Tendonitis

Tendonitis means there is damage or irritation to a tendon. Patellar tendonitis occurs in the tendon that connects the kneecap to the shin. This is common for individuals who run and jump regularly like athletes. Overweight individuals have an increased risk for patellar tendonitis because of the extra stress placed on the knees. This is often a result of repeated overuse and happens gradually. It can be the result of trauma to the knee as well. The pain happens just below the kneecap and increases with physical activity.  
 

Chiropractic Treatment

Most often rest is the first option. Chiropractic physical therapy can recommend wearing a knee brace during the treatment. They will also teach the patient proper stretching and warm-up exercises to prevent tendonitis.  

Osteoarthritis

Chiropractic is effective at reducing arthritis pain and inflammation throughout the body. Osteoarthritis can make everyday activities like walking and kneeling difficult or impossible. Chiropractic is designed to help reduce pain increase blood/nerve circulation that will promote healthy joint function and movement.

Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic will help osteoarthritis through:
  • Massage
  • Ultrasound
  • Laser therapy
  • All can help reduce pain and inflammation in the knees joints
  • Hands-on stretching
  • Adjustments can also help to improve the range of motion and joint function
This is important because knee pain can lead to increased pressure on the joints in the lower back, causing discomfort/pain as well.

Knee Valgus

Knee valgus also known as knock knee, is an inward tilt of the knees. It is easy to see when squatting or kneeling, but it can also happen when walking or standing. Young children tend to develop knee valgus but grow out of it by the time they are 10 years of age. However, if the knees remain bowed into the teenage years and beyond, it can cause issues in the hips, glutes, and back. Knee valgus can also be the result of:
  • Weak muscles in the legs, hips, or glutes
  • Tight muscles in the legs, hips, or glutes
  • Determining the exact cause is essential to address it and develop a treatment plan to correct the issue.
 

Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic specializes in the musculoskeletal system and a doctor of chiropractic knows what to look for. A chiropractor can address the issue through adjustments of the spine, hips, and knees. Hands-on clinic exercises and at-home exercises will be incorporated to correct the issues. These exercises combined with chiropractic will address structural and postural issues.  

Other Knee Pain Causes

Chiropractic can also address and recommend treatments for other knee conditions. These include:

Chiropractic Adjustments for Pain Relief, Function, and Prevention

Problems with the hips and spine can contribute to knee pain, as well as issues with the foot, ankle, or pelvis. Chiropractors perform a thorough examination of all the joints, tendons, and muscles that could be contributing to the pain. They will look at a full medical history and other details like:
  • Overall health
  • Diet
  • Lifestyle habits
  • Job
  • Exercise and/or sports activities
  • Injuries
  • Posture
  • Walking gait
With this information, the chiropractor will develop a customized plan unique to the individual’s needs and situation. Waiting for the pain to go away is not the best option. Chiropractic is safe, non-invasive, and offers a thorough approach to treating knee pain.

Body Composition Testimonial


 

Difficulty Moving

Lack of adequate muscle can cause difficulty moving like taking the elevator becoming a necessity, getting tired more easily, and getting in and out of a car can become a challenge. These are all possible experiences that can come as a result of losing muscle. Around 19% of women and 10% of men aged 65 years or older are unable to kneel. With no balance to kneel and pick something up means trouble. What to do to prevent massive muscle loss.
