Joint Pain and Knee Pain Treatment from Our Chiropractor in Broomfield
Constant or recurring joint pain can keep you from doing all the things you love and need to do in life. Knee pain is one of the most debilitating cases in point, making even a simple walk or a flight of stairs too torturous to contemplate. That's why you want a holistic treatment plan that can actual address your symptoms at their source. Here at Summit Medical Care Center, you'll find that kind of care from our chiropractor in Broomfield.
The Reasons Behind Chronic Joint Pain
Joint pain can be caused by a number of reasons. While acute pain goes away eventually, chronic pain can linger on and may even worsen over time. Osteoarthritis is a common example of chronic pain, as the progressive deterioration of cartilage within a joint causes friction and inflammation. Other causes of chronic joint pain include rheumatoid arthritis, gout, bursitis, tendinitis, and repetitive motion or overuse injuries. While conditions, such as osteoarthritis, are usually age-related, longtime musculoskeletal alignment errors can add stress to the joints and hasten their deterioration.
Knee pain is the most commonly reported chronic joint pain. The knees are major weight-bearing joints that take quite a pounding in a lifetime, especially if you're a runner. In addition to arthritis, bursitis, or tendinitis in the knee joint itself, you can also develop painful problems involving the kneecap, or patella. For instance, abnormal knee cap movement can lead to condition called runner's knee or patellofemoral syndrome, which is characterized by chronic pain as well as "popping" sounds when flexing the knee.
