Common Symptoms of Knee Pain

You know when your knees hurt, but here are some of the other symptoms you may encounter that serve notice you may need to seek medical help:

  • Swelling and excessive stiffness
  • Redness that is warm when touched
  • Weakness or unstable knees (your knee “gives out”)
  • Excessive popping noises
  • Inability to fully straighten your knee or reduced motion

You may experience a dull pain or constant ache, sharp or shooting pains, a dull burning sensation, or pain when your knee is touched or bumped.

Common Causes of Knee Pain

Knee pain may be the result of trauma or injury, or simple wear and tear.  Here are some of the most common causes:

  • Knee Bursitis:  An inflammation in the small sac of fluid that cushions your knee joint, called bursae.  This fluid helps cushion the joint and protect it from wear and tear.
  • Tendinitis:  An irritation or inflammation of the tendons.  These fibrous tissues attach muscle to bone.
  • Sprain or Strain:  A sprain or strain of the knee may include pain and swelling around the joint and lead to weakness in the knee.
  • Frozen Knee: A painful disorder that limits range of motion and a loss of function.  It can cause your knee to lock up, making it unable to bend or straighten.
  • Gout:  A form of arthritis caused by uric acid buildup.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: An autoimmune inflammatory disorder that causes swelling and pain.

ACL injuries, dislocated knees, fractures, and torn meniscus, and bone tumors can be even more serious conditions.

How Our Chiropractors in Imperial Can Help With Knee Pain

While ice can often help to reduce inflammation and swelling around the joint, soft tissue massage and manipulation by a trained chiropractor and mobilization can help reduce pain and increase the range of motion.  While some conditions may need surgery, a chiropractor will provide an initial examination and help you determine your best course of treatment.

Gave me some kind of relaxing treatment. I was truly impressed with how I was treated by the Dr. and also by the front office person. I am going to go back to Dr. Amato and I recommend him to others."
