There are a number of components to the knee, and coordinated and balanced movement of the knee’s structure allows it to function ideally. However, when one or more of these components become out of balance, it’s quite a different story altogether.
The symptoms of knee issues include cracking, stiffness, weakness, swelling, clicking, and popping but one of the most difficult symptoms of knee issues is chronic pain. If you are experiencing chronic knee pain, learn how our Aiea chiropractor can help.
Anyone Can Become a Victim of Knee Injury and Knee Pain
Knee pain is the result of the knee becoming impaired due to an injury such as a strain, sprain or pull. If the knee moves off its normal track, a host of problems can result. Athletes and active persons are very often the victims of knee pain, especially when their sport or activity requires a lot of fast movement changes on the court or playing field. However, knee pain can potentially strike anyone.
The top causes of knee pain that your Aiea chiropractor sees include:
- Acute knee injury
- Overuse injury
- Tight muscles
- Joint degeneration
- Complications following knee surgery
- IT band syndrome – Tightness on the side of the leg
- Meniscus tear – Injury to the fibrous cushioning of the knee joints
- Runner’s knee – Pain in the front of the knee related to tight quad muscles
- Patellofemoral pain syndrome
Knee issues can also be the result of hip, ankle or foot problems that cause overcompensation in the knee. The resultant stress of this cascade effect can often lead to major knee issues in addition to the original problem.
