About the Knee
The knee joint’s primary motions are flexion and extension of the leg. It attaches to the hip through the hamstring and quadriceps muscles and to the ankle by the gastrocnemius and tibialis anterior muscles.
The inside and outside of the knee are held together by the medial and lateral collateral ligament, and deep within the joint by the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments (ACL and PCL). The collateral ligaments prevent the knee from moving too much side to side, while the cruciate ligaments limit its motion in flexion and extension.
The meniscus is cartilage that sits between the bones of the thigh and leg, which allows for a smooth, gliding motion in the joint.
The patella floats on top of the joint and is connected to the quadriceps muscle by the quadriceps tendon and to the leg by the patellar tendon.
Any of these structures can become injured either through trauma or repetitive stress, causing pain, instability and even arthritis in the knee.
If you have knee pain it is important to be evaluated by a professional immediately.
At Denver Chiropractor Our expert doctors will perform a full evaluation to find the source of your pain and refer you for any further studies if needed.

How Physical Therapy And Chiropractic Care Denver Can Help?
Proper evaluation is key to finding the underlying cause of your knee pain. A few of the clinical signs that often accompany knee pain are inflammation, muscle/tendon tightness and tenderness, decreased joint mobility, decreased ligament stability and decreased strength.
Once the muscles, tendons and ligaments involved are identified, the initial phase of care will focus on controlling inflammation which will naturally result in decreased pain levels. Cryotherapy, such as heat and ice, or more advanced techniques utilizing a state of the art therapeutic laser, may be used.
The next phase of care involves working to restore proper function to the muscles and joint. This can be done through gentle manual therapy techniques including massage, myofascial release, post isometric relaxation, stretching, and specific joint mobilization procedures which can be done manually or with the arthrostim joint mobilizing tool.
Once the pain is sufficiently under control we can begin the final and most important phase of strengthening the involved muscles to once again provide joint stability and prevent re-injury in the future. This is done through specific rehabilitative exercises that are adjusted and modified based on your condition and tolerance.
If left untreated, these conditions can lead to chronic pain and even degeneration of the knee. Early intervention and treatment will allow you to get out of pain faster and lead to better outcomes for your knee in the future.
