Because the legs are used in everyday life and the knee is such a complex joint, we see a lot of patients here at Bezak Chiropractic and Rehabilitation complaining of knee pain. While it can be more common in middle aged and senior adults, knee pain occurs at any age, and for many different reasons.
Knee pain also varies in severity from mild annoyance to severe and debilitating pain. Some pain in the knees is experienced only while doing certain activities, such as running or bending, while other patients have chronic and consistent pain in their knees.
Some things that might cause knee pain include vehicle accidents, work-related injuries, falling and having fractures, overuse or exertion, improper alignment, flat feet and lack of stability, disease, or genetic weakness of the knees. Some patients also find that they start getting pain in their knee from an old sports injury occurring 15-20 years prior.
Treatments for knee pain at Bezak Chiropractic and Rehabilitation start with finding the cause of the pain and treating that cause. It may be cortisone injections, therapeutic exercise and physical therapy, massage, or encouraging a change in their diet, such as increasing anti-inflammatory and antioxidant foods.
