What You Need To Know About Knee Pain

Watch this quick video to gain a better understanding of what's going on.
Knee Pain Is Often Due To Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS).
It's a big medical word that describes a painful irritation of the cartilage behind your kneecap.

Although anyone may be affected, "runner's knee" is sometimes used to describe it since it is frequently caused by overusing the knee while participating in sports that include running or leaping.

The reason why you need to know this is because PFPS is the most common cause of knee pain in the general population. It affects an estimated 25% of adults.

Why Are You Experiencing So Much Pain?
What are the leading causes of PFPS?

One of the most common causes of PFPS is an imbalance between the muscles that help to guide your kneecap in its V-shaped groove at the end of your thigh bone.

A misplaced kneecap that is repeatedly flexed and extended develops pain, edoema, and eventually arthritis.

The patella (knee cap) is frequently misaligned as a result of hip and foot issues, particularly if you have weak gluteal muscles or flat feet.

What Are The Symptoms Of PFPS?
PFPS produces a dull pain behind the kneecap. It is aggravated by:
  • Prolonged walking
  • Running
  • Squatting
  • Jumping
  • Stair climbing
  • Arising from a seated position.

A downhill or stairway stroll may make the pain worse. The cartilage may become damaged from a long-term misalignment, which can cause popping, grinding, or giving way.

How Do We Treat Knee Pain?
Conservative chiropractic care, like the type we provide, is generally successful at relieving your symptoms.

Initially, it is important for you to minimize activities that provoke your pain - especially running, jumping and activities that stress you into a "knock-kneed" position. Don't allow your knees to cross in front of your toes when squatting.

Some athletes may need to modify their activity to include swimming or bicycling instead of running. 

One of the most crucial things you can do to help realign the patella, ease pain, and prevent a recurrence is to routinely perform your home exercises. It could be beneficial to apply home ice or have daily 10-15 minute ice massages to the area surrounding your kneecap.
