We know you’re busy and ready to get back out there, so let’s dive straight in…
Why Does My Knee Hurt?
This is a pretty common question we’re asked, and there is a myriad of answers we provide.
The knee is made up of bones, ligaments, and tendons (among other things) that need to work in unison for it to function properly. The structure is one of the largest and most complex in the body, and it’s important to maintain it so you can use your full range of motions and movements.
For the more active person, knees are often an essential part of the daily routine, whether that’s for work or play. So, when injured, your lifestyle is put at risk. It’s important to find out why your knee is causing you pain, so chiropractic methods can stop that pain at its core and allow you to find the comfort you need to do the things you love.
Reasons for knee discomfort:
• Overuse of joint or soft tissues
• Torn soft tissue
• Sprain or strain
• Runner’s knee
• And more
One of the best things to do when you find yourself with knee discomfort is to visit a chiropractor to ensure your body’s safety. Chiropractic care solutions are a proven way to efficiently find the cause of your injury, repair it, and learn how to keep it from returning.
