What Causes Knee Pain?

Knee pain may result from a number of different causes. One of the most common causes of pain in the knees is injury. Fractures in the bones of the knee, tears in the ligaments or cartilage, and inflammation can all cause patients to experience pain in the area. Patients may also develop knee pain because of mechanical problems with the knee, such as loose bodies in the knee or dislocations. A third possible cause of knee pain is arthritis, which may cause pain in other joints as well.

Patients are more likely to develop knee pain if they are overweight, have a previous injury, or lack adequate muscle strength. Knee pain also becomes more likely with increasing age. However, knee pain can affect anyone.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help?

Depending on the cause of the patient’s pain, chiropractic care may be helpful. Dr. Casab can use chiropractic treatments to bring down inflammation in the knee and reduce pain. These therapies may also improve mobility and flexibility in the knee. Over time, chiropractic therapy may improve the strength and stability of the joint, which prevents further injuries.

How Does Dr. Casab Approach Knee Pain Treatment?

When a patient comes in with knee pain, Dr. Casab will begin by examining the patient’s knee to determine the cause of the pain. Certain causes of knee pain, such as broken bones, may require other treatment before chiropractic care can begin. Depending on the results of this initial exam, Dr. Casab will recommend treatments designed to improve the patient’s pain and increase the stability of the knee. In some cases, patients will notice an improvement in their symptoms after their first treatment session. However, knee pain often requires ongoing chiropractic care, especially if it is related to a chronic condition like arthritis.
