Do You Have Chronic Knee Pain?
Knee pain is a common complaint. By the age of 60, one in ten men and one in seven women will have chronic knee pain. All too often, people develop chronic knee pain and decide just to live with it. They give up activities they have loved for years because they don’t know that non-surgical treatment is available. Your doctors at Denton Chiropractic Center in Denton, TX want you to know that care from your chiropractor is often exactly what you need to fix your chronic knee pain.
What Causes Knee Pain?
There are several common conditions that cause knee pain. If you live with chronic knee pain, there is a good chance that you have one or more of them. Let’s take a look at these conditions one by one.
Arthritis is a common cause of knee pain. Arthritis breaks down the protective, cushioning tissues of the knee joint. You can also have a problem with referred pain to your knee if you have arthritis in your hip.
Dashboard knee is a condition that comes up in a lot of cases of patients seeking chiropractic care after auto accidents. This problem results from blunt force trauma when the knee is forced into the dashboard of your car during a car crash.
Lumbar radiculopathy is another common cause of knee pain. This is a pain problem that comes up when people try to improve their lives by losing weight. They lose so much weight that they become uniquely vulnerable to spinal dislocation and “pinched nerves” that refer pain to the knee.
Another common problem in people who are doing their best to get back into shape is runner’s knee, also known as chondromalacia patellae. The bone at the back of the knee erodes because of repeated trauma to the knee as the runner pounds the pavement.
Knee Pain Typically Gets Worse and Worse if It Isn’t Treated
Knee pain only gets worse if you don’t treat it. Your chiropractor can get to the real source of the problem to correct it.
Sometimes knee pain, as in the case of lumbar radiculopathy, is really a problem with a herniated disc. Sometimes knee pain is a problem with damage to ligaments or the knee joint itself. Chiropractic care can bring about an end to knee pain without surgery, shots, or pills. Your chiropractor can also show you ways to prevent knee pain in the future.
