Knee Pain Q & A

What is knee pain?

Knee pain is common and can affect anyone at any time. You may develop knee pain after an injury or it may be something that develops over time. In addition to the pain and discomfort, you may also experience:

  • Decreased range of motion
  • Swelling and redness
  • Instability
  • Crunching or grinding sound when you move your knee

While it’s possible to treat your knee pain at home, if your pain is worsening or you’re unable to bear weight on your knee, it’s time for an evaluation from the team at Advanced Integrated Medical Centers.

What are the common causes of knee pain?

Knee pain can develop from a range of causes. Some of the most common conditions that lead to knee pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Dislocation
  • Injury to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
  • Meniscus tear
  • Bursitis
  • Patellar tendinitis

You can also develop knee pain due to a foot or hip condition. 

The team at Advanced Integrated Medical Centers conducts comprehensive examinations when you come to the office with concerns about knee pain to help you get the most effective and targeted treatment.

What are the treatments for knee pain?

Treatment for your knee pain is individualized and based on the underlying cause of your pain. The team at Advanced Integrated Medical Centers may recommend:

Chiropractic adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments may alleviate some of the stress on your knees by improving the alignment of your spine to redistribute your weight and the force on your knees.

Low-tech rehab and stretching

The team at Advanced Integrated Medical Centers may develop an exercise and stretching program to improve knee strength.

Massage therapy 

Massage therapy releases endorphins that may act as natural pain relievers to help reduce your knee pain. A massage is especially beneficial to knee pain caused by arthritis.

Regenerative medicine

The team at Advanced Integrated Medical Centers specializes in regenerative medicine and offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and undifferentiated cell therapy to support your body’s natural healing process. These therapies contain properties that assist in the regeneration of new tissue to replace diseased or damaged tissue for ligament or tendon injuries, as well as arthritis.

Even though knee pain is common, the team at Advanced Integrated Medical Centers can help with innovative treatments to relieve your discomfort. To schedule an appointment, call the office or click the online button today.
