Common Signs of Knee Pain and How to Take Care of Them
The knee is one of the most complex, most extensive, and yet the most critical joints in our body. It is a significant part of us that helps us manage the basics of daily activities like getting out of bed, bending, climbing stairs, picking objects from the floor, and walking. When you experience knee pain, your ability to go about your daily business is profoundly impacted. Fortunately, you don't have to live with the pain, especially if you live in Tacoma or the surrounding communities. Our chiropractors at Bakke Chiropractic Clinic can help you eliminate the pain so you can get back to normalcy as fast as possible.
What Causes Knee Pain?
Knee pain can be caused by many factors depending on the age, the lifestyle of an individual, and the sports activities that they undertake. Your knee is made up of tendons, cartilages, bone, and ligaments. When affected, you may experience the following problems:
- Dislocated Knee: Knee dislocation happens when the position of the thigh bone that is relative to the shin bone becomes disrupted at the knee joint through sports or accidents. It is a serious injury but quite rare as it damages essential nerves, blood vessels, and ligaments.
- Knee Bursae: Knee Bursae is a small fluid sac that is located near your knee joint. It reduces friction and cushion pressure points between your muscles, bones, tendons, and the skin near the joints. When inflamed, it causes pain and limits mobility.
- Strains & Sprains: Strains and sprains are common for most sportspeople, especially in football. They are mostly caused by a bad fall or an accident. When they happen on the knee, they can cause knee pain and hinder mobility.
- Tendinitis: Tendinitis is an inflammation on the tendon that happens when a person overuses or injures a tendon. It is commonly linked to acute pain and inflammation. It is common in sportspeople.
People who engage the knee regularly, like sportspeople, where they may need to bend or stretch to meet various sports demands, are more likely to suffer from knee pain. When you visit our chiropractors, we will need to examine your knee to determine the type of injury that is causing you pain.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
Depending on the injury, our chiropractors will conduct a thorough examination to evaluate the cause of your pain and whether there are other critical parts affected. Then, a corrective and pain relief care will be develop to help you heal from your knee pain.
