Knee pain is a widespread issue that can arise from various causes, including injuries, arthritis, mechanical problems, and more. It's essential to understand the knee's complex anatomy to pinpoint the source of pain and address it effectively.
Knee pain symptoms vary, and they can include swelling, stiffness, redness, weakness, and a reduced range of motion. At Spectrum Pain Management, we use a combination of medical history, physical examination, imaging tests, and lab tests for diagnosis.
Chiropractic care plays a vital role in treating knee pain at Spectrum Pain Management. Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments, the theory being that proper alignment of the body's musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication. This approach can be particularly beneficial for knee pain, helping to improve joint mobility, reduce inflammation, and alleviate pain.
Maintaining a healthy weight, practicing good exercise techniques, and wearing proper footwear are key to preventing knee pain. Seek medical attention if you experience severe symptoms like inability to bear weight, extreme swelling, or visible deformity.
