The knee is a vulnerable joint. It takes the full weight of the body and is subject to considerable additional forces with movement and activity. The knee is susceptible to a variety of problems which can lead to pain.
Knee pain is an extremely common complaint, and there are many causes. Treatment of knee pain must be directed at the specific cause of your problem. Some signs that you should be seen by a healthcare professional include:
- Inability to walk comfortably on the affected side
- Injury that causes deformity around the joint
- Knee pain that occurs at night or while resting
- Knee pain that persists beyond a few days
- Locking (inability to bend) the knee
- Swelling of the joint or the calf area
- Signs of an infection, including fever, redness, warmth
- Any other unusual symptoms
Chiropractic is an important aspect of the treatment of joint conditions, including knee pain experienced with osteoarthritis. Chiropractors use different techniques to increase strength, regain mobility, and help return patients to their original level of activity.
It is important to get an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your symptoms so that appropriate treatment can be directed at the cause. If you do have knee pain, some common causes are detailed below.
