How Chiropractic Can Treat & End Knee Pain

Our knees are incredibly active, helping us with numerous daily movements. They’re in use as we stand, walk, run, kneel, and often as we sit. All of these activities put the knee joints and soft tissues at a high risk for injury. And for those who are currently or used to be involved in high-impact sports, even more so. 

Knee pain can affect pretty much anyone, from those who ran track in high school and have chronic knee pain to those who lift heavy weights at the gym to those who sit at a desk for hours per day.

Chiropractic care is a great resource for finding the cause of your knee pain and getting natural solutions to help curb your symptoms as the injury is treated. Your local chiropractor can create a wellness plan for several kinds of knee injuries and conditions that cause knee pain. 


This post goes over:

  • Common reasons for knee pain
  • Conditions that cause knee pain
  • How chiropractic can help end knee pain
  • And more


Whether your knee discomfort is new or has been around for years, this post gives valuable insight into controlling your symptoms and getting a well-functioning knee once again. 


Why Does My Knee Hurt?

As mentioned above, we expect a lot from our knees, so caring for them as soon as pain arises is important. Understanding the reason behind your knee pain is essential to healing, keeping your knee protected, and reducing your chances of re-injury. 


Common reasons for knee pain include:

  • Regular wear and tear due to common daily activities
  • Regular sports and exercise 
  • Improper lifting technique
  • Poor habitual movement patterns or posture
  • Overuse due to occupation
  • Weight gain or pregnancy


These habits, events, or lifestyles can lead to conditions that further aggravate knee pain, including:

  • IT band syndrome
  • Knee tendinitis
  • Arthritis
  • Knee sprain, strain, or chronic inflammation
  • Bursitis
  • ACL injury
  • Ligament injury
  • And more


When you partner with a chiropractor for knee pain, you get a physical assessment that details the cause of your pain so the best strategy can be designed. 


How a Chiropractor Can Help End Knee Pain

You’ll get a comprehensive physical exam 

While many healthcare providers focus on pain, chiropractors focus on the cause of the pain. They understand the connections within the body and know that when one area is compromised, it can affect others. 

Getting a comprehensive assessment will tell your doctor where the injury causing knee pain actually is; it’s not always in the knee. 

For example, you may have a herniated disc or plantar fasciitis that’s putting undue pressure on the knee joint. Your chiropractor can determine the cause so the optimal treatment can be applied. 

You’ll get effective rehabilitation

Rehab is vital to recovery; it helps the knee return to proper movement patterns through strengthening exercises and stretches. 

Even if it’s found that the injury causing knee discomfort is elsewhere, the knee has also undergone damage, so the knee and the causing injury must both be rehabilitated using the most efficient process to reduce downtime. 

You’ll get invaluable guidance 

Chiropractors offer more than in-clinic solutions but also guidance, education, and insight into many aspects of your unique lifestyle. The goal is to give you the tools to proactively care for your body so you don’t hurt yourself again. 


Your knee pain chiropractor may advise you on any or all of the following:

  • Correct posture, ergonomics, and workstation setup
  • Warm-ups and cool-downs during exercise 
  • Proper lifting techniques and movement patterns
  • Core strengthening exercises
  • Stretches and flexibility techniques 
  • Stress management
  • And more
