Correcting Chronic Knee Pain
Chronic Knee Pain can be Alleviated if the Underlying cause is identified and corrected.
- 95+% of chronic knee pain is the result of past trauma (this includes repetitive motion injuries).
- These primarily lead to damage of the tendon or ligament attachments or the meniscus.
- This leads to joint instability and messaging from the brain that make muscles contract and stay contracted in an attempt to protect the joint.
- The chronically contracted muscle leads to reduced blood supply to the joint & associated muscles, as well as reduced nerve communications.
- This in turn leads to further muscle imbalances (shortened &/or weakened muscles) and the formation of Neuromuscular Trigger Points.
- All of this leads to reduced function, pain, and degeneration of the joint.
