Knee pain linked to patellofemoral syndrome

Patellofemoral syndrome is a problem found primarily in athletes, but also in individuals who stay in a seated position for extended periods of time. The knee pain is felt at the front of the knee (around the patella), and increases when the person walks on inclined grounds or climbs stairs.
This type of knee pain is caused by a misalignment of the patella, when the quadriceps contract and compress the articular surfaces of the patella against the femur. This could be due to a weak quadricep or hip, to soft knee tissues which are overly strained (lack of flexibility), to repeated dislocations of the patella, to overly intensive sports practices, or even to a problem with the feet (flat feet or other problems). It can also be a misplaced patella, a misaligned knee, etc.
An evaluation of the biomechanical condition of your knee will help better understand the cause of your knee pain, and determine which treatments should be prioritized. We can efficiently treat this syndrome using exercises (stretches, strengthening) which relax and strengthen the hip or quadricep muscles. Wearing a knee prosthesis or a patella or foot orthosis may be recommended to you to reduce knee pain, and to help the knee stabilize. Laser or ultrasound therapies may also help decrease muscle stiffness in the area

Knee or hip pain due to a sprain

A knee or hip sprain is an injury to one or more ligaments that provide stability in the knee or hip. This sprain can be caused by a trauma or a bad movement of the leg. It can be a stretch (mild sprain), a partial tear (medium sprain), or a total rupture of the ligament due to movements involving extreme twisting or extension, typically while playing sports.
The treatment will depend on the severity of the injury and the affected ligaments. Laser and / or ultrasound treatments can help reduce pain in the affected area.

Knee or hip pain due to osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a condition that causes gradual wear of the cartilage that surrounds the extremities of the bones, as well as a progressive deterioration of the joints. When osteoarthritis affects the knee or hip, it can cause a pain that may prevent the individual from going about their daily activities normally. Even if there is no cure for osteoarthritis, it is possible to reduce its progression and relieve pain. Laser or ultrasound therapies can help reduce the pain in the area.

Knee or hip pain due to tendinitis

Tendinitis is an inflammation of the tendon following a trauma, or repetitive movements. Tendinitis is characterized by a pain felt when applying pressure on the injured tendon, or when creating tension on it. Laser, ultrasound or shockwave therapies can help relieve pain in the affected area and help heal it.
If you are feeling stiffness, pain or discomfort in the knee or hip, a chiropractor can perform an examination and provide you with treatments and appropriate recommendations.
