Knee pain can come upon you suddenly or over the course of time. Either way, it can keep you from partaking in the activities you enjoy most. At Kilian Chiropractic in Downtown Vancouver, we offer an alternative solution to surgery and pain management drugs for knee pain relief. The following questions about knee pain causes and treatments can give you a better idea of how to handle your condition.
What’s causing my knee pain?
Various conditions can lead to knee pain to include osteoarthritis, compression of a spinal nerve, muscle strains, ligament sprains, runner’s knee, dashboard knee (auto accident injury) and ACL tears. Knee pain can be caused by auto or sports injuries or accidents at home or in the workplace. Chronic conditions and wear and tear of muscles and joints can also produce pain.
Depending on your condition, you may experience such symptoms as swelling, instability, popping sounds, tenderness or stiffness on top of your pain.
Who’s at risk of knee pain?
Almost anyone can get knee pain but athletes are more prone to knee injuries that cause pain and discomfort. Repetitive actions like jumping, running, pivoting, bending, etc., can put a strain on your knees, increasing your risk of knee problems. If you’re overweight, you’ll feel the stress even more.
How can chiropractic care help with knee pain relief?
Your Downtown Vancouver chiropractor will evaluate your condition to determine if chiropractic care can help or if you’re better off having surgery. Knee pain caused by spinal misalignment, muscle strains or other musculoskeletal issues will respond well to chiropractic treatment. After diagnosing the source of your pain, our chiropractor will decide a course of action for healing.
Chiropractic care offers an all-natural means of dealing with pain using such methods as:
Chiropractic adjustments to realign your spine, reduce pain and restore balance to your system
Massage therapy to increase circulation to afflicted tissues and relax muscle tension for improved flexibility
Physiotherapy to strengthen muscles to prevent future injuries
