What Is Knee Pain?

Our team of chiropractors and therapists in Bristol understands how frustrating and debilitating knee pain can be. For people who are usually very physically active or practise a sport, knee pain can have a big impact on their lifestyle.

The knee joint connects the thigh and shin bone, and contains cartilage, muscles, ligaments and nerves. The joint is responsible for absorbing and supporting much of a person’s weight during movement. Any problems within the knee can undermine the strength and integrity of the joint and cause knee pain.

If any of the following symptoms are felt persistently in the knee it is time to visit Reco Spinal Centre for a specialist assessment: pain in and around the knee area; instability in the knee or sudden giving-way of the knee; not being able to straighten; strange popping sounds; pain between the kneecap and shin; swelling, discolouration and stiffness.

What Are the Causes of Knee Pain?

Jumping around and landing badly, slipping on ice during winter or over exertion of sporting activities such as running can be responsible for causing knee problems. Whether the knee pain is the result of a medical condition or injury, our chiropractors and therapists in Bristol are experts at diagnosing underlying causes and finding the appropriate treatment.

Common causes of knee pain include:

  • Trauma and injury
  • Sprains and strains from overstretching, overusing and twisting
  • Patellar tendonitis (tendinitis), also known as jumper’s knee, is caused by irritation and inflammation of a tendon
  • Patellofemoral pain, also known as runner’s knee, is caused by the kneecap rubbing against the thighbone as it moves
  • Torn or ruptured ligament, tendon or meniscus (cartilage damage)
  • Arthritis
  • Infection
  • Bursitis is inflammation of the small sacs of fluid that cushion the outside of the knee joint

Treatment for Knee Pain

Self-care treatments for knee pain can include the RICE method: rest, ice and heat treatments to reduce inflammation, compression and elevation. For more serious cases, our specialists at Reco Spinal Centre will tailor make a treatment programme that will target the underlying cause giving the patient the best chances of making a full recovery.

Treatments for knee pain can include:

  • Massage and stretching techniques
  • Joint mobilisations and adjustments
  • Relaxation techniques
  • An ongoing programme of physiotherapy
  • Regular stretches and exercises to do at home
  • Wearing knee supports whilst exercising

Prevention of Knee Pain

A bespoke programme of exercises can improve recovery and prevent knee problems from returning. Sports people especially will need to address movement patterns that cause adverse effects on their knees.

Our specialists will assess and advise on appropriate exercises and stretches that will improve flexibility, balance, mobility and general range of movement. Strengthening the muscles around a knee will improve the overall stability that will prevent knee pain from reoccurring and problems occurring in other areas of the body such as in the ankles and hips.

Whilst in the recovery period, knee supports, shoe supports or a change in footwear may be advised. Diet and nutritional advice will also play a key role.
