Do you need knee pain relief but don’t know who to turn to? The experienced chiropractors and physiotherapists at Active Life Wellness Center can provide effective treatment for the majority of knee pain patients. Discover what typically causes knee pain and how we can address it.

Most Common Causes of Knee Pain

If you need help with alleviating knee pain, it’s generally beneficial to figure out why you’re experiencing an issue. Injuries to your tendons, fractures, and dislocations can create severe and prolonged pain. Sitting too much or putting too much strain on your knee by over-exercising or having a physically demanding job can also create chronic knee issues.

Medical conditions like osteoarthritis can cause degeneration of the knee’s cartilage, creating pain, reduced motion, and stiffness. Gout, tendonitis, arthritis, and bursitis are only a few of the additional medical conditions that can cause knee pain.

Treating Knee Pain: Effective Holistic Techniques

Healthcare professionals can use a variety of techniques to help you recover when you need relief from knee discomfort. We tailor the treatment plan to your needs.

Medication

The first rule of knee pain management is using the right type and dose of medication to help relieve the pain. While you shouldn’t rely on medication completely or for too long, it can reduce your pain enough to implement other healing routines. In most cases, learning to correctly apply heat and cold, as well as taking over-the-counter prescription medications, provides substantial relief.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a popular method for knee pain relief because it both helps the patient heal and strengthens the knee against further injury or degeneration. With regular treatment, many patients experience a significant or complete decrease in their pain, reduced stiffness, and a greater range of motion.

Support Devices

One effective tool for easing knee discomfort is using a brace or support device. These can include everything from full-length braces to ace bandages. They help protect your knee from further injury while you take time to heal.

Regenerative Methods

One long-term solution for soothing knee aches is implementing regenerative techniques. These cutting-edge medical procedures include platelet-rich plasma therapy or stem cell injections. They help your knee heal faster and become stronger, and they can last a long time, but they can also take several months before you notice a difference.

Home Exercises

Among the most essential remedies for knee pain is developing an exercise routine at home. Important exercises for your knee include:

  • Quad sets
  • Straight leg raises
  • Hamstring curls
  • Step-ups
  • Calf raises
  • Bridges
  • Wall squats

Work with your physical therapist to determine how often you should do these exercises to manage your healing.
