Knee pain treatment in Beaverton, Oregon
Not many people call up their chiropractor when they start having knee pain. More likely, as occurs in our office, it comes up after a person’s back pain clears up with chiropractic care and they ask if we can treat their knee pain as well. Beside back and neck pain, knee pain is one of the most common problems we will see in the clinic, and it comes from a variety of sources.
Many common causes of knee pain can be successfully managed with chiropractic care and functional rehabilitation. Among these are arthritis, patellar tendinitis, patellofemoral pain syndrome, and iliotibial band syndrome. Whether it is a chronic condition, an overuse syndrome, or from a traumatic injury, the knee is quite often a scapegoat – it gets blamed for another joint’s problems. In the case of the knee, we often find the hip or ankle joints to be the real culprit. If those joints are not working properly, the knee is compromised and will likely become injured.
