Below, we discuss the causes of knee pain and how chiropractic care can help.
What Causes Knee Pain and Who Is at Risk?
Knee pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including injuries and overuse. Age is also a main component, as tissues tend to wear down with time. Due to this, the bones can rub together and cause severe pain.
While anyone can experience knee pain, it occurs more often in people who:
- Have injured their knee in the past
- Are overweight, as excess weight puts undue pressure on the joints
- Are athletic or very active
- Work a physically-demanding job
- Have a condition like arthritis
- Are older
Relieving Joint Pain
Our team seeks to provide the best method of care to help you find relief for your knee pain. At our practice, we offer chiropractic care and regenerative treatments to help you with the recovery process.
Chiropractic methods of treatment are utilized to address alignment issues, muscle tension, and ligament sprains. Some of these methods include spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapy, and corrective exercises. With these techniques, we can determine the root cause of your condition and help you heal naturally.
Regenerative treatments can also help your joints heal naturally. The foundation of regenerative treatments is to help the body restore damaged or degenerated tissue. PRP or platelet rich plasma therapy is one form of regenerative medicine. The body releasees platelet rich plasma in order to help heal any tissues that may be damaged. In PRP therapy, this plasma is taken from your own blood and then injected into damaged tissue to speed up recovery. The technique helps to naturally natural relieve inflammation and pain, while also improving your range of motion in the knee joint.
