Everyday at Chiro Clinic Moncton, I consult patients experiencing knee discomfort. Interestingly, many people are unaware that chiropractors are able to treat knee problems - but in actual fact I enjoy managing any musculoskeletal problem, including hips, ankles, shoulders, elbows, and wrists as well.
Top 3 Knee Problems seen at Chiro Clinic Moncton:
1. ITB (Iliotibial Band) Syndrome: Typically a problem for runners, this causes pain on the outside of the knee joint, due to repetitive flicking of a tendon over bone or irritation of underlying fat pads. Inflammation occurs and pain begins.
2. Jumper's Knee: Inflammation or injury to the patellar tendon of rectus femoris, where the knee cap connects to the tibia shin bone.
3. Meniscus Tear: This rubbery disc that cushions the knee joint may be torn by twisting or turning quickly when standing, or due to old age deterioration of the tissue itself.
