Knee pain can be felt by people of all ages. In women, knee pain is common due to our increased pelvic/knee angle and because of hormones and connective tissue types.
Patellar tendonitis is often experienced by people with tighter quads and hamstrings. Chiropractic can be effective in addressing these problems, as we frequently assess your hips, knees and ankles to ensure all joints are moving properly in the kinetic chain. Hip and pelvic joint dysfunction are common factors which contribute to the development of knee pain. Similarly, dysfunction in the ankles and feet can also be a factor in the development of knee pain. If you are being bothered by knee pain, chiropractic care is a very effective form of treatment in finding and addressing the source of your pain.
Shockwave Therapy and Functional Dry Needling are also very effective forms of treatment for knee pain especially for knee pain caused by tendinitis and bursitis.
