Common Causes Of Knee Pain
Your knee pain may have a clear origin or have gotten worse over time. Accidents and injuries, slips and trips, even the natural passing of time can take a toll on our knees. Whatever the cause, you don’t have to just live with the pain or risk invasive procedures or addictive medications riddled with uncomfortable side-effects as your first and only choice.
- Knee Twist, Strain Or Sprain
- Impact Or Other Trauma
- Sports Injuries
- Work Injuries
- Bad Falls
- Poor Posture

Don’t Ignore These Signs & Symptoms
An injury that causes pain in the knees can be due to issues with a ligament, cartilage, trigger points, inflammation (like tendonitis), nerve irritation, or even osteoarthritis.

Chiropractic Methods Of Care
Knee pain chiropractors, sports chiropractors, and musculoskeletal therapists can treat knee pain in a variety of ways. From icing inflammation and suggesting specific exercises to specialized chiropractic manipulations, you have options. We can help you get to the root causes of your discomfort and design a personalized treatment plan that makes use of both chiropractic pain relief and massage therapy techniques.
How Massage Can Help
Sometimes pain in the knees is the result of tight muscles, tendons, or scar tissue build-up. Massage therapy can help balance muscles and release tension. Myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and deep tissue techniques may help to relax the areas causing you problems.
