Heal Runner's Knee Naturally & Holistically with our Midtown Manhattan Chiropractor

As your chiropractors in Midtown West and surrounding NYC communities, Dr. Anthony Conte (along with Dr. Cariann Paul) work with hundreds of New Yorkers every year struggling with knee pain related to running and other activities. Runner's knee is a frequent injury we see at Rockefeller Health & Medical, and it tends to respond well to comprehensive chiropractic care. 

Runner suffering from knee pain while runningOur Midtown & Hell's Kitchen Chiropractors Explain Runner's Knee

Runner's knee is a common condition affecting—you guessed it—runners, however this sports injury can also occur as a result of other physical activities, especially ones involving a lot of jumping, running, and pivoting. It may even occur in non-athletes. Our Hell's Kitchen chiropractor explains runner's knee in this way:

  • Tissues (including muscles and tendons) around the knee become inflamed, irritated, and/or damaged due to overuse, a sudden change in footwear, improper running technique, or even postural abnormalities (like kneecap misalignments, weak or tight muscles, or flat feet), which increase stress and strain on the knee
  • In some cases the cartilage behind the knee cap begins to break down—a condition known as chondromalacia patellae
  • Symptoms can start gradually and worsen over time

Symptoms of Runner's Knee

You may have runner's knee if you have:

  • Anterior knee pain
  • Difficultly kneeling, climbing stairs, running, walking, and jumping
  • The feeling of grinding, clicking, and/or instability in the knee or kneecap
  • Swelling and tenderness around the knee

How Our Midtown Chiropractors Treat & Prevent Runner's Knee

If you come to see our Midtown chiropractor for help with your knee pain, the first thing you'll gain is a greater understanding of why your symptoms are occurring. Once your diagnosis and contributing factors are identified, an individualized treatment plan can begin. Our services for people with runner's knee often feature:

  • Sports medicine, including Active Release Technique (ART) and kinesiotaping, which work with an athlete's body to relieve inflammation and mobility-limiting adhesions surrounding the knee
  • Corrective exercises, to facilitate restored strength, flexibility, and endurance of muscles and other connective tissues
  • Medical massage therapy, to facilitate lymphatic drainage and blood circulation to reduce swelling and accelerate tissue healing
  • Acupuncture, to naturally relieve pain and stimulate healing circulation
  • Chiropractic adjustments, to trigger the release of natural pain-killers and improve the alignment of your entire postural chain
