Knee pain can affect you no matter how old you are. While in most cases this issue is caused by injury, some underlying causes might also lead to intense knee pain. In such a scenario, you should see a chiropractor help you deal with the issue so you can lead a pain-free life. At Health First Chiropractic in Puyallup, WA, our team of chiropractic professionals will help you deal with your knee pain.
Causes Of Knee Pain
Our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your knee pain before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it. Potential causes of knee pain include:
- Injuries: If left untreated, knee injuries can lead to lingering knee pain. If you were in an accident or fell and hit your knee, then you need to figure out a way to get your knee checked.
- Arthritis: Arthritis affects your joints, and as such, you need to find a way to deal with the pain. While there is no cure for arthritis, seeing a chiropractor will help you manage your pain.
- Excess weight: If you are gaining weight quickly, there is a chance that your knees will not be able to support your body weight.
- Extreme sports: While sports are good for your health, some sports will put you at risk of hurting yourself. If you participate in athletics, an injury can cause severe knee pain which you need to get treated for.
While the list is not exhaustive, most of the causes of knee pain fall in any of the categories above. Knowing what might have caused your knee pain will help with the treatment.
What To Expect During Your Consultation
One of the things the chiropractor will do is examine your knee. We will also look at how your knee joint is looking to figure out if the joint is in place. You might need to move your knee around and see what angle makes it worse. Recommended treatment options will depend on the cause and severity of your knee pain. Rather than masking your pain with prescription medication or performing invasive surgery, our chiropractor will identify and treat the root cause of your pain and immobility.
