Seattle Chiropractors Treat Knee Injuries

Why Are Knee Injuries So Common?

Extensive medical studies have shown that the knees are the most complicated joints in the entire body.

The knees are actually the most fragile joints in the entire body and can be damaged and injured quite easily.  A skilled Chiropractor can help an individual maintain the health of their knees with natural, holistic treatments.

What Parts Of The Knee Are The Most Likely To Become Injured?

The three areas of the knees that are most likely to become injured are the….

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
  • Medial Collateral ligament (MCL)
  • Meniscus
  • Cartilage

The ACL is situated inside of the joint of the knee and supports the knee joint through stropping the shin-bone or tibia moving underneath the thighbone or femur.  A vigorous twisting motion or too much strain on the ACL can easily cause the ACL to tear in such a way that causes the knee(s) to stop supporting the body.

The MCL is also situated within the joint of the knee.  The MCL is an additional essential element that is needed to stabilize the knees properly.  An injury to the MCL frequently coincides with an injury that impacts the ACL.

The meniscus is a flexible cushion that is shaped like a wedge that is situated at the location where the primary bones of the leg attach.  The meniscus assists the joints within the knees to bear weight, and maneuver in numerous different directions.  The meniscus additionally prevents the thighbone and shinbone from smashing into one another.

A cartilage injury of the knees typically causes ‘Chondromalacia patella’.  This condition is defined when the cartilage on the caps of the knees becomes soft.  Injured knee cartilage most commonly impacts athletes who are runners, skiers, bicyclists and those that play soccer.

While athletic activities frequently cause injuries to impact the ACL, MCL as well as meniscus and cartilage by violent twisting movements that cause strain to the joints within the knees, elderly individuals may suffer from injuries to the knees as well.  This is due to a long and active life that causes gradual deterioration of the ACL, MCL, and/or meniscus and sometimes cartilage as well.

 Can A Misaligned Spine Cause Stress To Be Placed On The Knees?

Although the vertebrae is not directly attached to the knees, a spinal column that is not in proper alignment can easily negatively impact a person’s posture.  Poor posture can amplify spinal misalignment and cause a series of concerns that can place inappropriate pressure on the knees.

How does a misaligned vertebrae impact the joints in the knees?

A lower back or sacroiliac that is not in correct alignment may impact one or both hips which can by extension affect the alignment of the legs.  If the legs are not properly aligned, one leg will actually become shorter than the other leg.  When the legs are not the same length, uneven stress is placed on a person’s entire lower body which includes the knees.

Seattle chiropractors treat knee injuries by providing adjustments that can remedy this type of concern.
