Knee pain has many causes, including:
Knee pain can also stem from other parts of the body. For instance, if you have foot pain, you might alter how you stand and walk to prevent pressure on your foot. Unfortunately, this transfers unusual force to your knee joint, where you can experience new pain.
If knee pain influences your daily activities or prevents you from living an active life, it’s time to get help. Many people with knee pain try to ignore the issue, particularly if it’s sporadic and relatively mild.
But ignoring your knee pain simply gives it more time to worsen, making it much harder to treat in the future. Treating your knee pain now, before it becomes completely disabling, means you can get the relief you need and avoid major surgery like a knee replacement later on.
Using a holistic (whole-body) approach, MyChiropractor uses integrative care to bring on natural healing without potentially addictive pain medications. The team has a large toolbox of proven pain relief and rehabilitation techniques, such as:
You may also need bracing to support your knee joint as you heal. If your pain started in another place, like your feet or hips, the team might recommend custom Foot Levelers® orthotics to correct your movement and relieve the pressure that caused your knee pain.
You’ll also learn preventive techniques to preserve your knees, such as wearing proper footwear, gentle warm-up stretching before sports, losing weight if overweight, and avoiding high-impact activities on very hard or soft surfaces.
These approaches focus on easing your pain, stimulating your body to heal, and preventing additional damage — all using natural techniques. Chiropractic and physical therapy techniques offer a long-term answer for knee pain, so they’re superior to pain medicine that only provides a quick fix for pain.
