Knee Pain Q & A

What is knee pain?

Knee pain is discomfort in one or both knee joints. It might present as:

  • Pain with walking or jogging
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Redness
  • Warmth
  • Instability
  • Weakness
  • Crunching or popping sounds
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Limited mobility 


Pain in your knee might come and go or linger. If knee pain doesn’t subside within a few days or is severe, see your Interactive Family Clinic chiropractor for an evaluation. 


What causes knee pain?

You may experience knee pain after an injury or as a result of age-related deterioration. Common causes of knee discomfort include:

  • Arthritis
  • Torn ACL or MCL
  • Fractures
  • Meniscus injuries
  • Dislocated knee cap
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis


Knee pain risk factors include older age, being overweight or obese, playing certain sports, lack of flexibility or strength, and having a previous knee injury. Changing direction abruptly and jumping also increases your risk of knee injuries and pain.


How is knee pain diagnosed?

Your Interactive Family Clinic specialist first examines your knee and reviews your symptoms and medical history. They may use blood tests, ultrasound, X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and computed tomography (CT) scans to diagnose the cause of knee pain and find the right treatment for you.


What is the treatment for knee pain?

Your personalized knee pain treatment at Interactive Family Clinic is based on the type and severity of your knee injury. Your chiropractor might recommend:

Physical therapy

Completing strength exercises and stretches can accelerate knee joint healing and reduce your risk of future injuries and pain. Physical therapy and other holistic treatments may help you avoid surgery or taking addictive pain medicines for knee pain.

Injections

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), hyaluronic acid, and steroid injections can stimulate your body’s natural healing response, reduce inflammation, or increase joint lubrication to achieve holistic knee pain relief.

Other pain relief solutions

Your chiropractor might also recommend cryotherapy, ultrasound, cold laser therapy, or electrical stimulation to alleviate knee pain naturally, accelerate healing, and restore your quality of life.
