Knee Pain Q & A

What causes knee pain?

Many people experience knee pain after an accident or injury. In addition, knee pain can also be a chronic condition that grows slowly over time. 

Some common reasons you develop knee pain include:

  • Injuries
  • Disease
  • Mechanical problems
  • Arthritis
  • Excessive weight

Knee pain can severely restrict your movement, reducing your quality of life. But it can be managed and prevented.

How can you prevent knee pain?

Barring accidental injuries, there are many steps you can take to prevent knee pain from developing. Keeping your weight in check is important because obesity increases stress on your knee joints and increases the chance of cartilage breakdown and osteoarthritis.

Exercise is helpful for preventing knee pain. Strong, flexible muscles help protect your knees and achieve a full range of movement. 

After an injury, it’s important to follow your doctor’s treatment plan to ensure you make a full recovery and don’t increase your chances of developing future complications.

Not all knee pain can be prevented, however. If you’ve suffered an injury or have a degenerative disease like osteoarthritis, talk to a specialist at RehabOne Medical Group to understand your options for knee rehabilitation.

How do you treat knee pain?

Chiropractic therapy

Acupuncture

Your acupuncturist inserts small needles into targeted areas to release muscle tension that causes your knee pain. Acupuncture is used for many patients with osteoarthritis.

Myofascial therapy

Your myofascial therapist locates the areas in your knee that feel stiff and uses focused manual pressure to loosen up the restricted movement that causes your knee pain.
