Treating Knee Pain As Soon As Possible
If your lower body was slammed into the dashboard during a collision or your knees hit the car door during a side-impact crash, you might need an orthopedic Chiropractor.
Common knee injuries include fractured bones, damage to cartilage and torn ligaments that surround and support the knee.
If you twist the ligaments in your knees, they can stretch and tear, putting the whole joint out of commission. In old joints, the ligaments start to give out from age alone. The big three are your ACL, MCL, and Meniscus.
Your ACL keeps your shin bone in place, and a torn ACL will stop joint function. An ACL injury is also likely to affect your MCL. The meniscus distributes your weight across the point where your femur and tibia meet in the knee.
The result of a compromised meniscus is early onset arthritis as the femur and tibia grind together.
There is a cascade effect from your spine all the way down to your knees.
If your back isn’t aligned properly, you’ll find that you may also have hip and knee pain. Sometimes a Chiropractor can also detect if one leg has gotten seemingly shorter because of a misaligned back, which can also cause knee pain.
Chiropractic Treatment for Arthritis and Knee Pain
If increased age means that you’re moving less, you may notice that your knees are hurting, too. The onset of osteoarthritis is accelerated by underuse of the joints, so if you’ve been stuck in bed or a wheelchair for another injury, your idle knees may be in need of a workout to keep their shields of cartilage intact.
Atlanta Chiropractic Care for Kids with Knee Pain
Growing pains typically happen to children between the ages of 3 and 7, at night after a day full of activity.The pains don’t indicate active bone growth, but do occur in the places where the bone growth plates are stretching. If the pain occurs frequently during the day without accompanied exercise, or the knee joints are red and swollen or your child is limping, then you should bring your child to a Chiropractor to check other causes.
Inflamed spots at the base of the kneecap are called Sinding-Larsen-Johansson Syndrome. At the top of the shin, they’re called Osgood-Schlatter disease.While treatment for these conditions is simple, childhood knee pain can also be caused by actual malformations in the kneecap. In some
While treatment for these conditions is simple, childhood knee pain can also be caused by real abnormalities in the kneecap. In some cases, it’s Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis, which must be treated properly by a Chiropractor.
How Long Does It Take for Knee Pain To Heal?
It’s our number one question. Our answer is that every knee injury is different, and every person’s body heals at its own pace, so there is no set amount of time for recovery.
However, one fact remains true for every injury. The faster you start treatment, the sooner you can recover. This may seem obvious, but people often convince themselves that knee injuries will heal on their own. In fact, if left untreated, your injury may worsen, causing severe pain and permanent damage.
That’s why if you have been released from an Emergency Room with a referral to an Orthopedic Surgeon, you need to call AICA right away.
