Knee Pain FAQs

Common Questions Asked by Patients About Knee Pain

Our knees are one of the most important joints in our body. We need them to bend, run and jump. However, injuries do happen and they usually happen to our knees. What should we do when we experience this unfortunate pain? We at Metro Denver Accident & Injury Centers provide quality chiropractic treatment for residents of the Westminster, Lakewood, and Aurora areas. Many of our patients have asked us plenty of questions concerning their knee health. Here are three of the most common questions.

What Causes This Condition?

There are many contributing factors to knee injuries. One factor is flaring up an old injury that wasn't properly treated or never fully healed. This could cause your knee to hurt even more. Other causes of knee pain include dislocated kneecap, bursitis and meniscal tear. All of these conditions are known for causing pain and swelling in the knee joint and surrounding tissue.

What's the Difference Between Knee Pain and Arthritis?

The main difference between these conditions is the fact that there's no trauma associated with a knee injury. Arthritis is more of a dull, aching pain than a knee injury is. It's known for getting worse as time goes on.

What Treatment Options Do I Have?

The types of treatments you use depends on the severity of your knee injury. Mild to moderate problems often heal on their own. However, you could try using the R.I.C.E. method to speed up the process. This involves resting the knee, icing it, compressing it, and elevating it with a pillow. However, if the pain becomes too severe, you might want to see a trusted chiropractor.
