Knee pain can be debilitating. Basic everyday tasks like walking, running, climbing stairs and bending over all can become difficult. Fortunately, chiropractic care can help Oklahoma City residents.
The knee is a complex structure that involves 3 bones, 3 compartments, 2 menisci, 4 ligaments, cartilage, and many muscles and tendons. Balanced and coordinated motion of all of these structures allows the knee to move optimally and pain free. Chiropractic care for knee pain includes a thorough examination of the muscles, ligaments, joints, posture and gait, as well as discussing past injuries and lifestyle habits that may be contributing to your condition.
What causes knee pain?
Knee pain can be caused by repeated sports activity, old and new injuries, arthritis, overly tight muscles, joint degeneration and even from foot, ankle or hip problems that shift the way the knee is used. Increased body weight also causes more pressure on the joints, which on a daily, repetitive basis can lead to pain. Did you know that each extra pound of weight on the body adds 4 pounds of stress through the knee?
