Knee Pain

Knee Pain Treatment from a Jupiter Chiropractor

Knee pain can be an extraordinarily frustrating malady. It's hard to climb stairs, play outside with your kids, and kneel down to retrieve items from low shelves when your knees are stiff and achy. Whether chronic or acute, knee pain can leave you feeling like you're just not yourself. Fortunately, most knee pain can be managed, and you may even be able to get rid of it entirely with the help of a Jupiter chiropractor like our doctors at Papa Chiropractic and Physical Therapy.

Knee Pain Treatment from a Jupiter Chiropractor

Possible Causes of Knee Pain

People's knees hurt for lots of different reasons. Simple wear and tear is one of the most common of these. As part of the lower body, your knee joints have to support a lot of weight. Over time, this can lead to osteoarthritis, a painful condition that occurs when the cartilage cushioning a joint wears down. Osteoarthritis in the knees is most common in older people.

Injuries are also a major cause of knee pain. Because the knees are such flexible joints, it's all too easy to end up with a knee injury, especially if you are active. Knee injuries can take a long time to heal, and the pain may become chronic.

There's also a possibility that your knee pain doesn't originate in your knee at all. If there is a problem elsewhere in your body, such as in your lower back or hip, the pain may be referred down to your knee.

Tips for Reducing or Avoiding Knee Pain

Maintaining a healthy weight will help you reduce the amount of strain on your knees. Regular exercise can also help prevent future knee injuries, especially if you choose workouts that strengthen your legs and core muscles. If your knees already hurt, applying heat or ice can help you get some quick relief.

How Can a Jupiter Chiropractor Help with Knee Pain?

When you visit our clinic for help with knee pain, your chiropractor will start by examining your knee joint and watching you walk. Your gait may provide clues as to what's causing your pain. He will also ask you questions, such as how long your knee has hurt and whether you've been injured recently. 

After assessing you, your chiropractor will make manual adjustments to your knee joint as well as other joints in your body. This helps to take pressure off the knee. He'll also use techniques like massage, stretching, and physical therapy exercises to relieve your pain.

  • "Have been taking treatment from the facility in Jupiter since December 2019 after reinjuring a compromised knee. The staff are all very knowledgeable and proficient, and the people including fellow patients are sociable and friendly, adding extra value and fun to the experience. I have made outstanding progress in a speedy recovery, thanks to everyone helping me and personal attention from Dr. Papa and his associates, Dr. West and Physical Therapists Scott, Krystal, and Paige. Highly recommend this Practice. Wish that they were an option when I injured my knee in high school and later at basic boot camp decades ago. Looking forward to surfing, mountain climbing, skydiving, and bungee jumping again. (LoL!)"
