Knee pain, even after surgery?

This week we wanted to take some time and really focus on knee pain, knee dysfunction and knee biomechanics.   Knee pain is often very tricky and often can be the consequences of other areas of the body not functioning properly.   This often leads to the “knee pain without trauma” that I see all the time in my office.    Unfortunately knee pain is completely mismanaged in the current medical model and many people end up getting knee surgery that they might not even need.   In other situations they may of needed the surgery, but never got to a doctor that figured out why the knee injury occurred in the first place.    So a few months after surgery they are still having pain and wishing they never had that.   Knee pain can often be the smoking gun of dysfunction in any of the following:   Low Back   Hips   Hamstrings/ Quad Dominance   Ankle Dysfunction   All week long the rest of our posts will focus on the one of the above factors and how it can contribute to your knee pain.   Stay tuned all week, especially if you or someone you know has knee pain!

This week we wanted to take some time and really focus on knee pain, knee dysfunction and knee biomechanics.

 

Knee pain is often very tricky and often can be the consequences of other areas of the body not functioning properly.

 

This often leads to the “knee pain without trauma” that I see all the time in my office. 

 

Unfortunately knee pain is completely mismanaged in the current medical model and many people end up getting knee surgery that they might not even need.

 

In other situations they may of needed the surgery, but never got to a doctor that figured out why the knee injury occurred in the first place. 

 

So a few months after surgery they are still having pain and wishing they never had that.

 

Knee pain can often be the smoking gun of dysfunction in any of the following:

 

Low Back

 

Hips

 

Hamstrings/ Quad Dominance

 

Ankle Dysfunction

 

All week long the rest of our posts will focus on the one of the above factors and how it can contribute to your knee pain.

 

Stay tuned all week, especially if you or someone you know has knee pain!
