Chiropractic Medicine for Relief of Knee Pain
Knee pain can make the most basic everyday activities, from bending down to picking something up to going for a walk or climbing stairs, seem far more difficult than they have to be. Knee pain imposes negative effects on the body's ability to function normally and can put a real cramp in your lifestyle. Fortunately, Doctors Bradley Peterson, Bruce Koelliker and Black Peterson of Peterson Chiropractic in West Valley UT can provide professional chiropractic services for knee pain that can restore your knees to their pain-free state.
Common Causes of Knee Pain
Dislocated knees can be debilitatingly painful, and can cause long-term issues if not treated early on using proper treatment methods.
Knee bursae are fluid-filled sacs that work to reduce the friction between the knee's moving parts. When the bursae become inflamed or irritated, it is characterized as knee bursitis.
A frozen knee is the result of Adhesive Capsulitis or Frozen Joint syndrome. It is a painful disorder that leaves the patient with a limited range of motion. It is thought to be caused by shrinkage and thickening of the capsule that surrounds the knee joint, by scarring or by chronic inflammation.
Rotator cuff injury
A rotator cuff may be injured as the results of normal, age-related wear and tear on the joint, or from an injury, such as an automobile accident or fall.
Strains and sprains
The knees are stabilized by four major ligaments and a number of smaller ligaments. A sprain occurs when one of these ligaments is injured. Strains occur when a muscle is injured.
Tendons are the thick, fibrous cords that adhere muscle to bone. When this cord becomes irritated or inflammation occurs, it is called tendinitis. Tendinitis can be especially painful in the knee area.
How Can Our Chiropractor Help Your Knee Pain?
Knee pain can be addressed successfully through chiropractic adjustments. Since it is most commonly caused by misalignments and muscle imbalances that arise due to poor posture, repetitive stress, overuse, and physical trauma, your chiropractor can help mobilize your joints back into your body's proper alignment. This can reduce the inflammation and facilitate healing of the knee and the surrounding soft tissue. When used in conjunction with corrective exercises that reinforce and complement the adjustments, chiropractic treatments can be quite effective.
