What are the common causes of knee pain?
Several conditions can result in knee pain. The knee joint not only bears the weight of your body but they are used extensively during several types of daily activities. The knee joint has fluids, cartilage, and ligaments making it susceptible to different types of pain. If any of the soft tissues get damaged or inflamed, it can cause knee pain. Some of the common causes of knee pain include auto accident injuries, sports injuries, excess weight, arthritis, misalignment of the spine, and more.
How can a chiropractor help with knee pain?
Dr. Duca is experienced and qualified in the diagnosis and treatment of knee pain. Knee pain is one of the most common complaints of our patients. We help our patients find the relief they need from knee pain. Based on the diagnosis of your knee pain, our chiropractor will use different techniques such as manual adjustments of the knee joint or spine to alleviate the pain and support natural healing.
Does knee pain require surgery for complete treatment?
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive form of treatment. Most types of knee pain can be treated without surgery. Your knee may require surgery if it has been severely damaged. We can refer you to a surgeon that can guide you on surgical procedures for the knee if needed.
If the pain is behind or above the knee, is it still considered knee pain?
Any pain around the knee can be considered knee pain. The pain can originate from the knee and radiate to other areas around the knee joint. Whether your knee pain is a result of trauma, overuse, or medical conditions, we will perform a comprehensive inspection of the knee and create an effective customized treatment plan.
