Knee pain can be caused by a current or previous injury or due to a variety of medical conditions, including arthritis, gout, and infections. Sudden and intense knee pain is usually caused by a torn ligament or a strained tendon.
The knees may give out due to the instability of the knees cap or from a ligament injury. Many times, this accompanied an audible popping sound, swelling, and pain.
The knee produces synovial fluid that helps reduce friction when it moves. When the knee is injured or irritated, it produces more fluid, which can lead to swelling and pain.
Knee pain when climbing and descending stairs is most commonly the result of the wearing down of the cartilage behind the kneecap. It may also be caused by the kneecap pulling to one side due to stress.
Chiropractic adjustments can help sore knees is most effective when combined with complementary corrective exercises recommended by your chiropractor.
