Our multidisciplinary approach integrates  state-of-the-art  technology, expertise and comprehensive knee injury therapy to help you recover to a pain-free and active lifestyle.   Apart from spinal conditions, knee pain is one of the most common ailments of the musculoskeletal system. There is a large range of problems that can affect the knee, as the knee joint is one of the most-used joints in the body. Imagine how often you use your knee joint – walking, running, sitting, bending. No wonder we can get pain from wear and tear!  Our Bloomington physical therapy experts, Dr Craig Morrow and Dr. Greg Morrow, are experienced in rehabilitation and will help you learn how you can help yourself recover from  knee injury. Whatever the cause of your knee pain, the professionals at Bloomington Neurospinal Chiropractic Clinic will diagnose and treat it using cutting-edge technology and the finest physical treatments.

The knee is like a hinge between the thigh and the shin bones, with a small joint on the outside of the leg (the kneecap). These joints are all supported by cartilage and ligaments to keep it flexible and cushioned during activity. Problems with the knee may include poor mechanics or overuse of the knee joint, traumatic injuries possibly from sports or falls, and problems associated with arthritic changes in the joint. This can result in pain below the knee cap, pain inside of the knee, referred knee pain, and various  swelling, tenderness or stiffness.   Faulty  mechanics of the knee is usually the most common cause of non-traumatic knee pain. Imbalance in other muscle groups that attach to the knee can also lead to pain and dysfunction. The main treatment for mechanical or overuse injuries to the knee is to re-establish proper balance of the muscles, restore movement to the knee cap and other joints and correct any spinal misalignment.

Certain sports can put a lot of pressure on the ligaments supporting the knee. When the knee is stretched or twisted beyond the strength of the ligaments that hold the joint together, tearing of these tissues can occur. The ligaments could also become strained, leading to swelling. Traumatic knee injuries can cause severe pain and swelling and require immediate attention.

Arthritis is also a common cause of knee pain. Arthritis usually presents in the form of knee cartilage of degeneration, exhibiting  the bare bone of the knee joint.  Decreased range of motion, stiffness and pain are common in arthritic knees. Swelling can also occur in the area, which is usually due to fluid on the knee. The knee joint holds a lot of fluid in a capsule behind the thigh. If the joint is damaged, this fluid can accumulate around the joint, resulting in swelling.

Diagnosis of knee injuries requires a full history of problems, and physical examination.   As common knee injury symptoms can result from a number of causes, it is important to correctly identify the origin of acute knee pain.

Knee pain can be treated effectively through traditional chiropractic care. Soft tissue massage and adjustments can reduce swelling and inflammation in the area, and adjustments can restore the range of motion following knee cartilage injuries.
