Understanding Knee Pain

Knee pain is common and can impact people of all ages. Our legs and knees are critical in supporting our spine and providing mobility. Since the knees bear a lot of stress due to activities, overuse, and the loads that we carry, they can be easily injured. The knee joint is formed by the femur, tibia, patella, and cartilage. Along with that, it also consists of muscles, tendons, nerves, and ligaments. When injury, disease, or inflammation affects any part of the knee, the joint sends pain signals to your brain that it needs attention and care.

Understanding the symptoms of knee pain is beneficial in describing the problem to your chiropractor for accurate diagnosis and treatment.
