In our everyday life, we put our knees through a lot of stress. Overuse of knee muscles, poor posture or mechanics and impact injuries may lead to tenderness, swelling, pain and other problems. If you are suffering from any such knee related problem, visit Bedford Chiropractic Clinic for a professional chiropractic realignment. We also offer chiropractic care for back, hip, foot, ankle, shoulder, head, elbow and wrist injuries.
Patellar tendonitis/runner’s knee
The symptoms of runner’s knee include knee grinding, swelling or pain when bending and stretching the leg. Common in runners, overexertion of the joint, direct impact and weak muscles are a few of the causes.
Patellar tendonitis is a knee cap injury caused by stress and overuse. It is important to ensure complete recovery to prevent re-injury.
Persistent and reoccurring knee pain is the most common symptom of knee sprain. Professional treatment is required to reduce the pain and improve the range of motion.
