Knee Pain Q & A

What are the causes of knee pain?

Your knee, which bears a great deal of stress from your weight and daily activities, is a complex joint. It’s where your upper and lower leg bones — femur and tibia — connect and meet under your kneecap (patella). 

Not only does each bone have a protective layer of cartilage to absorb shock and prevent friction, but several muscles and connective tissues also stabilize your knee and assist with fluid movements. Pain can occur if there’s an issue with any of these components. Some of the most common causes of knee pain include:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries
  • Torn cartilage
  • Tendinitis 
  • Fractures 
  • Arthritis 

If you have knee pain, even if it seems minor now, book an evaluation at Clarksville Chiropractic Center. Delaying your treatment another day may cause your underlying condition to worsen. 

How is knee pain diagnosed?

Clarksville Chiropractic Center has on-site digital imaging capabilities, which helps your practitioner evaluate the inner structures of your knee on the spot. Your provider also needs to perform an evaluation and check the function and range of motion of your knee. It’s important to let them know if you experience any of the following issues:

  • Popping or grinding
  • Knee instability 
  • Inflammation 
  • Stiffness 
  • Redness 

You should also let your provider know how your knee pain is affecting your life. For instance, if knee pain worsens with activity, which decreases your job or sports performance, let them know. Clarksville Chiropractic Center practitioners tailor knee pain treatment plans to your symptoms and your lifestyle. 

What is the treatment for knee pain?

Decreasing knee pain and preventing it from coming back typically requires combining several conservative treatment options. Your dedicated practitioner at Clarksville Chiropractic Center can schedule you for manual chiropractic adjustments several times per week or as needed. They may also recommend:

  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)
  • Regenerative medicine joint injections 
  • Therapeutic ultrasound 
  • Ice and heat therapy 
  • Massage therapy
  • Custom orthotics 
  • Laser therapy 
  • Acupuncture 

Clarksville Chiropractic Center proudly offers these holistic treatments (and more!) for all types of joint pain and other pain-causing issues, including carpal tunnel syndrome.
