Knee Pain Q & A

Why do my knees hurt?

Several factors contribute to knee pain. Your knees bear the brunt of nearly every movement you make, and over time this can contribute to a variety of painful degenerative conditions including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Patella damage
  • Meniscus tears
  • Ligament injuries

Your knee pain might also be due to a structural imbalance elsewhere in your body that can affect your muscle function and tension as well as the way you walk.

Athletes increase their risk of knee pain because of the additional stress they place on their knees and other joints while competing and training for a sport. Also, if you’re overweight or lead a sedentary lifestyle, you increase your risk of knee pain.

When should I talk to a chiropractor about my knee pain?

Some of the signs that you should talk to a health care provider about your knee pain include:

  • Inability to extend or flex your knee
  • Inability to put weight on the joint
  • Decreased mobility
  • Continued pain even after resting
  • Visible deformity

You should never ignore knee pain or accept it as a normal part of life. Contact the team at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine for expert assessment and treatment.

The team provides comprehensive physical exams to identify the condition causing your knee pain. They use motion-study digital X-rays to look for structural and functional issues that contribute to your pain.

How is knee pain treated?

When the team at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine understands the condition causing your knee pain, they work with you to implement a personalized treatment program to relieve your pain and address its cause. For example, your plan might include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Functional medicine
  • Foot Levelers custom orthotics
Can I prevent knee pain?

While your genetics do affect your likelihood of developing some knee problems, you can reduce your risk by maintaining a healthy body weight and getting regular exercise. The team at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine offers personalized weight-loss programs to help you lose excess weight and improve your overall health. They can also help you develop safe exercise programs to strengthen the muscles that support your knees without increasing your risk of overuse or injury.
