Knee Pain Bothering You? See Your Chiropractor
By Donna Stark
Do you find yourself turning down invitations to be active with your friends? Does it hurt to stand for a long period of time or to walk a short distance? Chronic knee pain can be a debilitating and life-altering condition, and although you already know that, you may not know what the underlying cause of your situation is. That's why it is so important to get an accurate diagnosis, and luckily, it is easy to do so when you visit your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.
Causes of Knee Pain
If you are suffering from knee pain, the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic want to speak to you! They want you to know that you don't have to settle with a life filled with pain and they also want you to know that they can help put an end to that kind of life. Take a look at a few of the most common knee issues they treat.
Tendinitis occurs when the tendons in and around the knee joints become inflamed. It can either develop gradually over time or show up suddenly and all at once. Routine chiropractic care is very effective at alleviating and treating this condition.
Osteoarthritis in the knee occurs when the cartilage becomes worn away and the joint surfaces become rough. This means the knee joint won't move as smoothly as it should and that it could become stiff and painful. Chiropractic adjustments help with osteoarthritis by correcting alignment issues, improving the strength of the muscles and tendons around the joint, and decreasing the risk of further degeneration.
Knee bursitis occurs when the surrounding bursa (small, fluid-filled sacs) become irritated and inflamed. Bursitis can be extremely painful and will limit a person's mobility. Chiropractic care is a great way to treat this condition because it can relieve the pain, treat the underlying cause, and reduce the risk of recurrence in the future.
