Knee Problems

The knee is a very complicated joint and consequently knee pain is quite difficult to diagnose without a proper examination by a trained professional. The following are the diagnostic categories most commonly related to knee pain.

Categories of Knee Pain:

  • Trauma
  • Arthritis
  • Patellar-femoral syndrome (chondromalacia patella)
  • Myofascial (muscle) referral
  • Sclerodermal (spinal joint) referral
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Infection
  • Tumor
  • Cysts

Each of these conditions requires different treatment protocols and may best be treated by more than one health care provider. Chiropractic offers chiropractic care, massage therapy, soft tissue therapy and exercise rehabilitation. We also use electric modalities such as electric muscle stimulation which may be helpful in the care of your knee pain. If the diagnosis of your condition warrants a medical referral or diagnostic imaging (x-ray, MRI) this will be arranged.
