Here at Wellsure Chiropractic, we have a special interest in the treatment of peripheral dysfunction. Young or old, there have been times where our knees don’t seem to feel or work how they normally do. Knee pain can stem from a variety of causes, whether that be from trauma, overuse, sports or simply degeneration.
No matter the cause, the team at Wellsure undertakes a thorough examination of the spine and lower limb to best determine the tissue in lesion. The most common tissues involved with knee pain include the Anterior & Posterior cruciate ligaments, meniscus, bursa and numerous tendons and other ligaments and osseous structures that surround the joint.
Common conditions of the knee that we assess include ligamentous sprains, tendinopathies, knee bursitis, Osgood Schlatter’s, osteoarthritis and patella tracking disorders.
It is important to remember that the knee is a part of a kinematic chain, and that the pain may be referred from the spine or pelvic joints from a biomechanical dysfunction. Hence why your Caloundra chiropractor may also assess these areas in addition to the knee.
We understand that each person is different, which is why our treatment is tailored to your unique goals. Following a detailed investigation, treatment for a chiropractic suited case may include soft tissue techniques, knee mobilisations, lumbopelvic spinal adjustments and rehabilitation.
If you have any questions about knee pain, or wish to learn more about biomechanical chains, please contact Wellsure Chiropractic.
