Knee Pain

Knee pain is a prevalent issue that can significantly impact your daily life and physical activity. Whether your knee pain stems from a sports injury or chronic condition, Roselle Center for Healing in Fairfax, VA, can help. Our chiropractor will diagnose the underlying cause of your knee pain and recommend a personalized treatment plan to restore pain-free movement. We are here to tell you about the most common causes of knee pain and how chiropractic care treats it.


Common Causes of Knee Pain

Several factors can contribute to knee pain, ranging from mild strain to significant injury. Some of the most common causes of knee pain include:

  • Sports Injuries: Athletes are particularly susceptible to knee pain due to the repetitive stress placed on the joint. Injuries like ligament sprains, meniscus tears, and patellar dislocations can all cause significant pain and discomfort.
  • Arthritis: The wear-and-tear of joint cartilage, also called osteoarthritis, is a leading cause of knee pain in older adults. Rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease that inflames the joints, can also affect the knees.
  • Overuse Injuries: Running, jumping, or squatting can lead to overuse injuries like tendinitis and bursitis.
  • Misalignment: Misalignments in the spine or pelvis can also contribute to knee pain by placing uneven stress on the knee joint during movement.

How Can a Chiropractor Help?

Your chiropractor will begin by performing a comprehensive evaluation of your condition, including a physical examination and range-of-motion tests, to determine the cause of your knee pain. Once your chiropractor understands the root of your knee pain, they can create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve lasting pain relief. Your chiropractor may include one or a combination of the following in your treatment plan:

  • Chiropractic Adjustments: Manual adjustments aim to improve joint mobility and function in the spine and pelvis. Doing this can alleviate pain in the knee while increasing your range of motion.
  • Massage Therapy: Massage can help relax tight muscles around the knee joint, improve blood flow, and reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Physical Therapy: Our chiropractor can design a personalized exercise program to strengthen the muscles supporting the knee and improve flexibility.
  • Ultrasound Therapy: Ultrasound uses sound waves to promote healing, reduce inflammation, and improve blood flow to the injured area.
