Knee Pain Treatment From Your Manhattan Chiropractor

Knee pain is a common problem that can occur with overuse, athletic activities or from simple aging. The knee is a complex joint composed of bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles that function together to provide smooth movement in the lower body. However, a variety of disorders can affect the knee joint, leading to chronic or intermittent pain, stiffness, swelling and lack of full mobility. Rockefeller Health Medical can treat knee problems, to help patients get back to their normal activities, without pain and with full function.

Knee Pain

Iliotibial Band Syndrome

The knee joint has a specialized ligament on the outer edge that helps it to stabilize. This “iliotibial band” can become inflamed by increased friction between the ligament and the bones. Individuals may experience a burning sensation in the knee, aching or localized tenderness. Your New York chiropractor can use a variety of techniques, such as physical therapy, manual adjustment, special exercises and acupuncture to help relieve discomfort and mobility problems from iliotibial band syndrome.

Patella Femoral Syndrome

The patella is the small cap of bone that floats over the top of the knee to provide smooth movement. Friction between the patella and the femoral bones can lead to misalignment, increasing discomfort, swelling and problems walking normally. Chiropractic treatment with strengthening exercises, range-of-motion improvement, bracing, manipulation and acupuncture, can relieve discomfort and improve function.

Anterior Cruciate Injuries and Posterior Cruciate Injuries

The anterior cruciate ligament and posterior cruciate ligament lie within the knee joint and can become damaged by injury or overuse. Individuals may experience pain, swelling, difficulty walking and knee instability. These issues can be resolves with chiropractic manipulation, physical therapy and acupuncture to relieve pain.

Collateral Ligament Injuries

Collateral ligaments are found on both sides of the knee. These ligaments can be damaged by sideways impacts, leading to pain and instability in the joint. Manipulation, strengthening exercises and physical therapy can help to resolve problems of discomfort and poor range-of-motion.

Meniscal Tears

The knee joint is also composed of menisci, discs made of connective tissue that provides cushioning for the knee, as well as stabilization during movement. Tears in the menisci generally result from injuries, such as falls, auto accidents and impacts during sports. Chiropractic adjustment, physical therapy and acupuncture can help to improve function after initial healing.

Tendon Tears and Tendonitis

The tendons that provide effective movement in the knee joint can become inflamed from overuse or can experience tears during strenuous movement. These conditions can lead to chronic pain and lack of normal mobility. Chiropractic care includes a variety of techniques, and your doctor may use massage, exercise and acupuncture to improve soft tissue healing and to relieve discomfort.
