Now a days not only adults but also children are experiencing knee pain. It is so common because we all use our knees everyday. There are many different causes of knee pain each requires different types of treatment for its cure. Chiropractic treatment for knee pain is the best and most recommended way to cure it.
Causes of Knee Pain
You can experience knee pain that comes from the front, back, inner, outer or inside of your knee. All of which have different causes and your Chiropractor will be able to perform the necessary history and examination to determine the cause of your specific knee injury. Your lumbar spine and pelvis will also be assessed due to their neural and bio-mechanical link to the lower limb.
One of the most causes of Knee pain is Osteoarthritis. It is also called as wear and tear arthritis because it is caused by the cartilage wear down in the joint. This wear down is caused by improper motion and joint function. The cartilage wear out in a particular spot is caused by the improper movement of the joint which leads to Osteoarthritis.
Chiropractic Treatment For Knee Pain
Finally to treat knee osteoarthritis, we must identify the cause of improper joint motion and it should be corrected. So, a detailed inspection of the foot and low back are needed to determine if problems in those regions are causing your knee problems.
Once the primary cause of your knee pain is determined and is not suspected of any serious injury to the deeper connective tissue and joint, your Chiropractor will be able to begin your treatment program. If your knee condition is suspected to be cause by more serious pathology, your chiropractor will refer you to an orthopedic doctor for further evaluation.
