Knee pain develops in or around your knee joint, obviously. However, knee pain can manifest in many different ways for different people, depending on the cause and location of the pain. From sharp, stabbing pain to more of a dull ache, each case of knee pain is unique. In addition to pain, you may also experience the following related symptoms:
Getting to the root cause of your knee pain is important in finding the right treatment approach. The team at Align Integrated Health uses a comprehensive and integrative approach to provide you with a clear road map to pain relief.
Just as knee pain varies from person to person, so too can the root cause. Injuries to the bones, tendons, ligaments, and fluid-filled sacs of your knee are obvious sources of knee pain. These injuries can happen either suddenly or gradually, such as an overuse injury.
Certain mechanical problems can also leave you with knee pain, such as iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS) or a dislocated kneecap. In addition, diseases or chronic conditions can affect the health and strength of your knees, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout.
While injury and illness can cause your knee pain, certain lifestyle choices can also put you at greater risk for developing knee pain down the road. These risk factors include:
Being aware of these risk factors and addressing your unique risks can help you rehabilitate from knee pain or prevent you from developing new knee pain later. Losing weight, strengthening leg muscles, and increasing your flexibility are all great ways to help ensure the health of your knees for years to come.
Wide-ranging treatments are available for knee pain, depending on its cause. The team at Align Integrated Health reviews your situation thoroughly so they can offer you a comprehensive plan of care designed specifically to meet your needs and rehabilitate your knees.
Care may include chiropractic adjustments, strengthening and flexibility training, regenerative medicine treatments, and more.
