Common Causes of Knee Pain

Both complex and resilient, the knee works hard every day keeping us in motion. It is, however, subject to a variety of illness and injuries that can create pain in the knee. These include:

  • Arthritis. Perhaps the most common cause of knee pain, there are two broad categories of arthritis. Osteoarthritis occurs when cartilage in the knee degenerates. Rheumatoid arthritis causes inflammation, negatively affecting surrounding cartilage.
  • Ligament Injuries. Common knee related knee injuries include a sprained anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) both of which can be very painful.
  • Tendon Injuries. Tendons serve as sort of “rubber bands” for the knees and can stretch over time. Tendon injuries can include a torn or ruptured tendon or tendonitis.
  • Meniscus Injuries. These injuries often occur from the repetitive rotation of the upper leg on the knee.
  • Referred Pain. This is knee pain that results from other parts of the neuromusculoskeletal being out of alignment or malfunctioning. This can be caused from problems with hip joints, back joints, and more.

Many will deal with knee pain with medication. That however, simply does not address the core cause of the pain. At Arbor Crossing Chiropractic Life Center in Livonia MI, we offer knee pain chiropractic care that is natural and provides long-term relief.

How Chiropractic Can Helps Knee Pain

Chiropractic care seeks to realign the neuromuscular system to bring proper balance to the body. It relieves unnatural pressure on the knee that may be causing your discomfort. With proper chiropractic care and rehabilitation, the knee can begin to repair itself, healing naturally without the use of drugs or surgery. If knee pain is limiting your day-to-day life, you have been told you have arthritis or if you are masking knee pain with medication, please contact your Livonia MI chiropractor at Arbor Crossing Chiropractic Life Center.
