Causes of Knee Pain
Knee pain can be caused by many things. Maybe your knee pain is caused
by tight muscles or tendons in your leg, hip or lower back. Or your IT
band could be very tight causing a patellar tracking problem. You may
have scar tissue inside the joint causing friction and a wearing down
of the muscles, tendons and bones. You may even have damage to one of
the ligaments of your knee (MCL, LCL, ACL, PCL), the meniscus or
cartilage. And while we’ll do our best to help you avoid it, surgery
may be necessary.
Why Choose Athletic Edge?
We can help you! Our therapeutic treatments can help open your knee
joint and free-up friction patterns affecting this damage. This may
give your knee the time it needs to heal properly. We’ll review your
posture and help assess the actual cause of your pain because it’s
likely that your knee pain has been slowly building over time. We will
also explain when to use ice or heat and will provide stretches and
recommendations to help get you feeling better.
Our trained therapists will provide the right treatment for you.
We’ll look at how your patella (knee cap) is moving and will check your
muscles for imbalances. Then we’ll apply techniques such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, a series of muscle energy techniques, scar tissue release, or active stretching and release.
In addition to working with many local athletes and professional
sports teams, the staff at Athletic Edge works in
conjunction with doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists,
acupuncturists and other health care professionals to provide our
clients with the highest level of care possible. We have treated
everything from pulled muscles, whiplash and joint pain to scoliosis,
carpal tunnel syndrome and severe nerve pain.
