Temporary knee pain isn’t uncommon, but can become more serious or chronic if not treated. If your discomfort impacts your daily life, Ponte Vedra Wellness Center in Nocatee and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, can help. Here's what you need to know before your appointment:
Signs You May Have a Knee Injury
You'll feel pain in the front, side, or back of your knee if you have an injury. Many people also experience swelling, stiffness, and a popping sensation when they move their legs. Sometimes a fall or a sports injury can cause knee pain because of the hit to the surface or a possible torn ligament. If the pain lasts more than 48 hours without getting better, consult our chiropractor for assistance and relief.
Common Causes of Knee Pain
In order to determine why you may be experiencing pain, our chiropractors will conduct a physical exam. This helps to eliminate certain causes of discomfort. Common reasons include osteoarthritis, injury, trauma, poor posture, and pressure on the knee. Patients also experience serious pain as a result of cartilage, tendon, meniscus, and ligament injuries. Even if you think you know the cause of your injury, our chiropractors can help find the right treatment and help to speed up the recovery time.
Chiropractic Care for Knee Pain
At Ponte Vedra Wellness Center, we use chiropractic treatments to reduce your knee pain and improve mobility. We often utilize spinal adjustments and massages to reduce inflammation, tension, and pain in the knee joint. Depending on your condition of your pain, we may also recommend specific stretches or exercises to improve your range of motion and flexibility. Acupuncture is also an alternative treatment that can be used for patients with severe knee pain.
