Why Do I Have Knee Pain?
Knee pain can be caused by a number of different factors, but the most prevalent thing to remember is that your knee is a complicated joint that is used during most bending and side-to-side motions and that bears much of your weight. Sitting, standing, walking and climbing stairs all involve putting your knee to work. Knee pain could a result of simple wear and tear that will naturally occur during your life. It can also be affected by health problems in other areas of your body, such as your hips, ankles or lower back. You knee pain could be the result of any of the following:
- A torn meniscus
- Cartilage damage
- Knee sprain or strain
- Consistent popping or cracking
How Can We Help?

Knee replacement surgery is painful and invasive and not without its own risks. That is why our team offers multiple therapies, including low-level light therapy (LLLT), chiropractic techniques and knee decompression, to reduce inflammation, increase your mobility, promote and repair cell growth, and alleviate your pain.
