Osteopathic Treatment for Knee Conditions
Given that it is the largest of the body’s joints, it is not at all surprising that painful knee conditions are so common. The knee is under near-constant pressure, and its collection of bones, ligaments, tendons, and tissues makes it a prime target for overuse and injury. And since injury or overuse of any part of the knee structure can affect its ability to perform its functions, these conditions can have a serious impact on your everyday activities and lifestyle.
The knee joint plays a key role in human mobility. That joint is responsible for enabling you to bend and extend your legs, crouch, jump, twist, rotate, and perform any number of other lower body activities. The knees help to support your body when you walk, run, play, site, and rise, so any injury to that joint will often limit normal movement. Fortunately, you can get relief from knee pain with osteopathic treatment. By using proven techniques like muscle and soft tissue manipulation, stretching, recommended exercises, and lifestyle changes, a competent osteopath can help you expedite your healing and return to a pain-free life.
