Meniscal tears can cause joint immobility and reduce the range of motion in your knees. Your chiropractor will do a careful assessment of your knee to determine the cause of your knee pain. A variety of conditions can cause knee pain, including meniscal tears. The meniscus is a small cushion that helps stabilize and protect your knee joint. It is located between your femur bone and tibia. If one tears, you may feel pain in your knee joint and have difficulty straightening your leg all the way. Chiropractic care can reduce inflammation and help restore your knee joint through careful adjustments.
Your knee may be in pain for a wide variety of reasons. Arthritis, sprain, or strain or ligaments, muscles or tendons can all cause your knee to hurt. Chronic knee pain may be a result of the wearing down of cartilage in your knee joint, while acute pain often results from an impact to your knee. Your chiropractor will look at your knee joint and see how the joint functions. Further testing such as an MRI or X-ray may be necessary to rule out arthritis or a fracture. Once the source of your pain established, your chiropractor at Balanced Health Medical will develop a plan of care specifically for you.
