Back of Knee Pain

leg pain

Pain in the back of the knee can have a seriously negative impact on the quality of your life. That’s why the medical doctors at Citrus Ridge Health Center have both the training necessary to pinpoint why you’re experiencing pain in the back of the knee (posterior knee pain), but also devise an effective treatment plan to help you alleviate pain and increase your range of motion. In order to understand how treatment can help you, we’d like to explore how posterior knee pain arises and what you can expect from your Davenport chiropractic treatment process.

How Does Posterior Knee Pain Arise?

There are a wide variety of causes for pain in the back of the knee, and identifying which one you’re suffering from is a key step in building your treatment program. If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms from the following conditions, it’s time to visit our practice:

  • Arthritis - Arthritis is a common cause of pain in the back of the knee, and can come about both to osteoarthritis due to simple wear and tear over the years, and inflammation caused by rheumatoid arthritis. You’ll experience a wide range of symptoms, including swelling, pain, clicking and grinding, reduced range of motion, and morning stiffness. Many people over 50 start experiencing this.
  • Baker’s Cyst – The baker’s cyst is seen with inflammation of the popliteal bursa, which is a fluid filled sack near the back of your knee. You’ll feel swelling, tightness and pain in the back of your knee, and may have trouble bending or walking. This condition can come on gradually, but can also arise directly from an injury
  • Meniscus Tear – A meniscus tear is a tear at the cartilage lining at the joint in the back of your knee. You’ll experience swelling, instability, difficulty straightening the knee, and will have severe problems with your range of movement. Usually this happens as a result of an injury, such as twisting your knee, but gradual wear and tear can also lead to a meniscus tear.
  • Knee Sprain – This occurs when you stretch or tear one of your knee ligaments, and can lead to swelling, bruising and pain. This usually occurs when you experience a sudden injury, and varies in severity based on your injury.

We at Citrus Ridge Health Center have the expertise to recognize these conditions along with a variety of others that affect the posterior knee, such as hamstring injuries.

Waiting too long to obtain treatment can make your condition worse and prolong recovery times significantly.
