You never know how much you take your legs and knees for granted until you have knee pain. That can quickly change how your life is going. One minute, you can stand and walk, and then you can't straighten your leg or put any pressure on it since your knee is in a lot of pain. It can also set in over time. You may start to notice more stiffness in your legs and a growing pain in your knee.
While there may be some instances where resting can help the problem, there is something happening under the skin where things are out of alignment. It may be time to see a chiropractor. We here at Dr. Louis Valentine, LLC in Cincinnati, OH, are here to help.
What Causes Your Knee Pain?
You can have knee pain for a variety of reasons. Here are some of them:
- You have an acute injury: This can occur for traumatic reasons, like being in a car accident or while playing a sport, or even something as routine as walking up or down some stairs. You can do everything from spraining a ligament or muscle or getting a knee contusion.
- You have a chronic injury: You have these on a recurring basis due to conditions that might make your knee cartilage go away, which then puts bone on bone. Arthritis, both osteo- and rheumatoid, can be a big cause. You can also have this pain from repetitive use such as doing a lot of running.
