Managing Knee Pain
Many people of different ages suffer from knee pain, which makes it difficult to perform basic functions. Knee pain can be caused by injuries and complications from medical conditions. If you have physical restrictions caused by knee pain, visit Guzzardo Chiropractic Center. We provide chiropractic services to the residents of Clinton Township and the surrounding areas for pain relief and optimal health. We also serve Sterling Heights, Utica, Harrison Charter Township, Fraser, Warren, Mt. Clemens, Shelby Township, Troy, and Rochester Hills.
The Causes of Knee Pain
Knee pain is often the result of overuse injuries and underlying health conditions. Knee pain is a common problem aggravated by strenuous physical activities and triggered by certain health issues. Sore knees are usually not an indication of a severe medical problem. Sometimes it could be a muscle strain or some form of arthritis. It is common for people to experience knee pain as they age. If you are overweight or have experienced a sports injury, you may also suffer from knee pain. Other common causes of knee pain include:
- Infections in the knee joints
- Baker cysts
- Torn ligaments
- Dislocation of the knee cap
- Torn cartilage
The Signs and Symptoms of Knee Pain
Depending on the structure affected and location, the intensity of knee pain varies from person to person. Knee pain that is caused by inflammatory processes or infections causes the entire knee to swell and is quite painful. Fractures that affect one specific location and baker cysts affect the back of the knee. You may experience minor aches or severe incapacitating pain, as well as difficulties while walking or locking the knee.
When to Visit a Doctor
Most knee pains go away with time if you use home remedies, but if the pain persists, then it is time to consult a professional. If your knee swells, does not get better in a few weeks, or if it locks and causes physical restrictions, it is time to schedule an appointment with Dr. Guzzardo.
Diagnosis and Treatment
Upon visiting our chiropractor, you will receive a physical examination and evaluation of your symptoms to form a proper diagnosis. We will create a customized treatment plan that is designed to provide pain relief while supporting the recovery process.
