Knee pain is a very common issue. It can result from many day-to-day activities that we do, including standing, running, lifting, walking, and bending. Whether it’s caused by an injury, age, or normal activities, knee pain can be excruciating and should be treated immediately.
Chiropractic care is a great non-invasive way to treat knee pain. At Spine One Chiropractic Center, our team of experts can diagnose and treat your knee pain. We have locations in Atlantic City, Egg Harbor, Cherry Hill, and Northfield, NJ, where we offer personalized treatment plans.
What Causes Knee Pain?
The knee consists of several bones. It connects the thigh bone (femur) to the shinbone (tibia). The kneecap (patella) and the fibula make up the knee joint. These bones are connected with tendons and ligaments. There is also cartilage that acts as a cushion between these bones. If any of the components in the knee is damaged, you will experience pain.
Some causes of knee pain could be damaged cartilage, inflammation of tendons, ligament injuries, knee arthritis, gout, dislocated kneecaps, knee joint infections, or kneecap fractures.
