Knee Pain Q & A

What is knee pain?

Knee pain is a common complaint, especially among older adults. It may present as one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Reduced mobility
  • Dull, aching pain 
  • Sharp or stabbing pain
  • Pain with walking or standing
  • Inability to straighten your knee
  • Crunching or popping sounds
  • Redness
  • Weakness or instability

Knee pain may go away on its own or linger long term. If knee discomfort is severe or prevents you from staying active, treatment can relieve pain and drastically improve your quality of life.

What causes knee pain?

You might experience knee pain after a sports injury, work-related injury, car accident, or chronic disease. Possible causes of knee discomfort include:

  • ACL or MCL injury
  • Torn meniscus
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fracture
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis
  • Knee dislocation
  • Previous knee injury
  • Lack of strength or flexibility

Being overweight increases your risk of a knee injury and pain associated with it, as excess weight puts strain on your joints.

How is knee pain diagnosed?

To diagnose the cause of knee pain, your chiropractor reviews your symptoms and medical history. They examine your knee and may use blood tests, X-rays, MRIs, or other imaging procedures to determine the extent of your injury and develop a treatment plan.

What is the treatment for knee pain?

Your individualized knee pain treatment is based on the type of injury you have and its severity. Your Paladin Chiropractic provider may recommend:

Chiropractic adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate pain throughout the entire body, even in your knees. Paladin chiropractors specializes in the Activator Method® and other advanced adjusting techniques that offer widespread pain relief.

Cold laser therapy

Cold laser therapy can stimulate energy production in tissues, accelerate healing, reduce inflammation, and relieve knee pain. Your chiropractor applies the laser to injured tissues for relief without surgery, addictive pain medicines, or downtime.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy helps strengthen your knees and surrounding tissues using site-specific stretching and strength exercises. Your Paladin Chiropractic specialist lets you know which home case exercises to complete between treatment sessions to optimize your results.
