Your knees might buckle under you without warning if they’re in pain or stiff.
Knee pain can be unforgiving, especially if it prevents you from participating in sports, performing on stage or keeps you from doing every day activities. Holistic physiotherapy and chiropractic care can alleviate knee pain by targeting the source of the problem.

How will holistic physiotherapy and chiropractic care help me with my knee pain?
In addition to providing pain relief and strengthening your knee, integrative physical therapy and chiropractic care offered at Northstar Integrated Health & Physical Medicine Center can help you achieve these goals. Our licensed physiotherapists and chiropractors will examine your knee to find the root cause of the problem. Pain in the knees can be caused by issues in the back, hips, or ankles. Knee pain can also be caused by structural damage to your knee or tissue sensitivity. You can avoid harmful medications or surgical correction in the majority of cases by working with our physiotherapists and chiropractors.
In the course of your examination, your therapist will perform a variety of orthopedic tests to look for any structural damage to your back, hips, or other joints. Once the assessment is complete, your physiotherapist or chiropractor will formulate a treatment plan for you that includes a combination of holistic manual therapy techniques, therapeutic modalities such as acupuncture, and recommendations tailored to particular needs in order to provide immediate pain relief and other symptom modification. After that, your physiotherapist or chiropractor will want to include strengthening exercises for your knee in your treatment plan in order to help you regain your purpose. For instance, research has shown that patients with patellofemoral stress syndrome (kneecap pain) respond positively to workouts that work to strengthen both the hips and knees, rather than only focusing on the knees. In the end, you will begin doing activity-specific or athletic exercises before gradually re-entering your activity or sport until you are participating again.
In terms of my knee pain, what should I be aware of?
Your knee is a hinge joint, which means it can only move in one direction at a time. When you squat, your knees bear more weight than your hips, supporting six times your body weight. Standing, walking, running, and dancing can all be accomplished with ease when your hips and knees are moving properly.
An examination of the lower back should be performed first in many people who suffer from knee pain. For example, arthritis or degenerative joint disease, meniscal tears, patellar tendinitis, iliotibial band friction syndrome, or muscle strains can all be ruled out if the spine is free of any abnormalities.
So, what exactly is it about my knees that’s giving me trouble?
Knee pain can be caused by a problem with the joint itself, or it can be a symptom of something more serious going on elsewhere in the body. There are a number of different weight-bearing joints in the human body that form a chain that must work in harmony in order for the muscles to work, such as those in the lower back, hips, knees, and ankles. This means that an abnormal force can be transmitted to your knees from a problem with your back, hips, or ankle joints. An imbalance in the kinetic chain might put a strain on the next link in the chain.
