Knee Pain Relief Q & A
What Are the Most Common Causes of Knee Pain?
Knee pain can occur for many different reasons, including:
- trauma affecting the bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments or other structures of the knee, including overuse injuries and strains
- trauma affecting the back, hips or ankles
- bone spurs that impinge normal range of motion
- degenerative changes from arthritis
- prolonged or recurrent periods of immobility or reduced mobility
- anatomic changes like bone spurs or muscle wasting
- knee joint instability
The knees are subjected to significant forces all day long as a result of continual bending and flexing during walking, sitting, standing and other types of activity and motion. Plus, the knee joints must support the entire weight of the upper torso, making them especially susceptible to damage and pain. Because joints are complex structures comprising many types of tissues, injuries can also be complex, requiring a careful approach to ensure proper and complete healing and to promote normal, pain-free range of motion.
How is Knee Pain Diagnosed?
Knee pain relief begins with a complete and thorough assessment of the knee using hands-on techniques, passive and active range-of-motion exercises and, when needed, diagnostic imaging to “look inside” the joint for changes due to injury, arthritis or other issues. A personal and family medical history can also provide important information about the potential causes of pain, and a review of lifestyle factors including occupational issues can also play a role in identifying causes of pain. Once the assessment is complete, a holistic plan of care will be developed based on the patient’s specific needs.
How is Knee Pain Treated?
Knee pain relief often requires a “multi-pronged” approach to addressing several factors for long-term relief of symptoms. Care may include joint injections to reduce inflammation and augment the joint’s natural lubrication, rehabilitation therapy and exercises, lifestyle changes, braces or assistive devices, chiropractic adjustments and other approaches to ensure all contributing factors are addressed. In addition, the patient will receive guidance tailored to their lifestyle and habits to help prevent the occurrence of knee pain in the future.
