Knee Pain Q & A

What causes knee pain?

Your knee is a large complex joint that you unthinkingly rely on as you go about your day. But its complexity makes it prone to strains and injuries affecting the tendons, ligaments, and cartilage inside your knee.

Injuring or damaging to any of these structures can lead to knee pain. Common causes of knee pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Knee bursitis
  • Dislocated Kneecap
  • Torn cartilage or ligaments
  • Strains and sprains
  • Knee tendonitis
  • Sports injuries

The nature and degree of your knee pain depend on your underlying condition or type of injury. For example, knee pain from arthritis may start mild and grow progressively worse.

When should I seek help for knee pain?

Minor knee injuries may improve with home care methods, such as rest, ice, compression, and elevation. That said, seek treatment as soon as possible if your knee pain is severe or you experience any of the following:

  • Popping sound at the time of your injury
  • Inability to bear weight on your leg
  • Inability to straighten your knee
  • Swelling or visible deformity

Dr. Potts provides timely treatment to help you recover from knee pain without relying on surgery or medications.

How is knee pain diagnosed?

Dr. Potts goes over your medical history to understand your overall health, as well as the nature of your injury. He asks when the pain began and reviews your symptoms.

You’ll have a thorough physical exam, and he asks you to move your knee to determine the precise source of your injury and pain. The doctor also assesses your range of motion, strength, and reflexes.

He may recommend X-rays or an MRI to confirm your diagnosis and rule out the need for surgery.

How is knee pain treated?

Dr. Potts creates a customized treatment plan based on your diagnosis. He uses state-of-the-art chiropractic techniques to help you regain mobility, relieve inflammation, recover from injuries, and enjoy better overall function.

For knee injuries, he advises a multi-modal treatment plan, including:

  • Chiropractic adjustment
  • Corrective exercises
  • Lifestyle changes

The doctor seeks to restore the full use of your knee — without drugs or invasive surgery. To find out whether chiropractic care is right for you, call Mt. Rose Chiropractic today or use the contact form.
