Knee Injuries

Knee injuries account for approximately 4.5 million medical visits each year in the United States.

About Knee Injuries

Knee injuries encompass a range of conditions that affect the structures of the knee joint, including ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and bones.


Common knee injuries include:

  1. Ligament Injuries: Such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, medial collateral ligament (MCL) tears, and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tears.
  2. Meniscal Tears: Tears in the cartilage cushions (menisci) of the knee joint.
  3. Patellar Tendonitis: Inflammation or irritation of the patellar tendon, which connects the kneecap to the shinbone.
  4. Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome: Pain around the kneecap (patella) due to overuse or malalignment.
  5. Knee Osteoarthritis: Degeneration of the knee joint cartilage, leading to pain, stiffness, and decreased mobility.

Chiropractic care and physiotherapy offer conservative treatment options for knee injuries:


How Chiropractic Care Can Help:

  • Spinal and extremity adjustments: We perform adjustments to realign the spine and extremity joints, including the knee, to reduce pain and improve joint function.
  • Soft tissue therapy: We may recommend techniques such as massage, myofascial release, and instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) can help alleviate muscle tension and reduce inflammation around the knee.
  • Rehabilitation exercises: We may prescribe specific exercises to strengthen the muscles surrounding the knee joint, improve stability, and enhance range of motion, promoting recovery and preventing future injuries.

How Physiotherapy Can Help:

  • Exercise therapy: We design individualized exercise programs to improve strength, flexibility, and proprioception in the knee, addressing muscular imbalances and promoting tissue healing.
  • Manual therapy: Hands-on techniques such as joint mobilizations, soft tissue mobilization, and stretching can help improve joint mobility, reduce pain, and optimize biomechanics.
  • Modalities: Physiotherapy modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and ice/heat therapy may be used to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling, facilitating the healing process.

Both chiropractic care and physiotherapy focus on addressing the underlying causes of knee injuries, alleviating symptoms, restoring optimal function, and preventing recurrence. Treatment plans are tailored to individual needs, considering the specific type and severity of the knee injury, as well as factors such as age, activity level, and overall health.
