Continue below to understand how bone-on-bone knee pain develops and how a chiropractor near you can help treat it.

What Is the Origin of Bone-on-Bone Knee Pain?

Take a close look at a healthy knee joint, and you’ll find coatings located at the ends of the bones. These coatings look more like cushions and are better known as cartilage.

Cartilage has an important role to play in preserving your knee joint. It essentially serves as a shock absorber that prevents the bones in your knees from rubbing against each other whenever they go in motion. The cartilage stops your bones from making contact, allowing you to move without discomfort.

Unfortunately, the cartilage in that part of your body can also wear down, resulting in a condition called knee arthritis. Damage that accumulates over the years is the primary reason why cartilage breaks down, but risk factors can also cause it to break down faster. Being overweight and having a hobby that involves frequently using your knees are examples of those risk factors. Pain is the primary symptom produced by bone-on-bone knee contact, but it may also be accompanied by stiffness and weakness.

How Can a Chiropractor Treat Bone-on-Bone Knee Pain?

Now that we know how bone-on-bone knee pain comes about, we can discuss what chiropractic care can help do about it.

For starters, a chiropractor on our team may use chiropractic adjustments to help alleviate the symptoms of knee arthritis. Chiropractic adjustments can help realign your knee joints and potentially help prevent further pain. They might also help ease the strain on the parts of your joints that feature more wear.

Massage therapy is another form of treatment that can help address bone-on-bone knee pain. Our chiropractic care team can massage therapy to help promote faster recovery around your knee joints and help address the damage done to the surrounding tissues.

Preventing Knee Pain

We can also help you avoid the early development of knee arthritis by providing diet advice to help you stay at a healthy weight. Maintaining a healthy weight will place less pressure on your knees and may help preserve the cartilage.
