About Knee Pain.
Do I Need Treatment?
A normal healthy joint should be pain free, even as you age. However, major injuries, minor injuries or even the wrong type of movement over time, can cause chronic pain. If your knees are hurting from injury, arthritis, or are not healing properly, you need to see us.
What causes most types of knee pain?
Knee pain arises from exercising or moving on a knee that is not properly aligned. Technically speaking this is joint dysfunction. This may have started as injury or even an auto immune inflammatory condition like arthritis. Over time, this improper movement can wear down the cartilage and put strain on the muscles and tendons. Foot or hip joint issues can also cause strain on the knee ligaments, causing the cartilage to wear unevenly and creating inflammation in the tendons. In addition, trauma that is not properly treated or rehabilitated can, in many cases, cause chronic knee pain.
How do I know if I need treatment?
If any of the following apply, you may benefit from treatment:
- You have chronic knee pain with degenerative arthritis from an injury
- You have already had knee-replacement surgery and continue to have chronic pain
- You have an injury from over-use or over-extension
- You are an athlete with repetitive movement and stress on the knee
Note: Acute knee injuries should first be evaluated orthopedically to assess for ACL or MCL damage. Orthopedic care and imaging is necessary in treating torn ligaments.

Great people. Amy is the best massage therapist. Love her. Dr Adams is great and I love the new way of being adjusted!
I have been going to Foundation Chiropractic for several years. Not only have they helped me with back pain, but the treatments I receive also reduce the volume of migraines I get. The service here is fantastic and they are always flexible with schedules. I have never been disappointed in their quality.
