Knee pain after going to chiropractor

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain after going to chiropractor


Avatar f tn About 6 weeks ago I went to a chiropractor for some slight back pain and found out that I have severe inflammation all throughout my back, as well as a tilted pelvis, my left knee rotates outward and that causes my left foot arch to collapse. I went through about 4 sessions of treatment before I called it quits because my back and knee were in major pain and the dr kept pushing costly treatments. I plan on attending a Physical Therapist this summer once I can afford it.
Avatar m tn I found the best thing was to find a chiropractor who knows how to treat knees. (And I have had a lot of p.t. for my knee that helped some, but not as much as seeing a good chiropractor.
Avatar m tn Idk what state your in but i would go to a research/hospital, here we have wake forest & duke. I went 6 months & 2 surgeries on my knee until i went to wake & they did a test similar to an ultrasound & then to confirm an mri then found chrondomalasia on my knee (the bone looks all stuffed up like the surface of the moon) something could show up on an mri but w out a good doc to thoroughly look at it would go unnoticed.
Avatar f tn I started limping because of the knee injury, causing my body to be thrown off balance, and putting excessive pressure on the other knee which caused the other knee cap to started to hurting as well. I started using a cane to help me walk, but that caused me to developed a tennis elbow on the side of use, which hurts me terribly, and eventually pains in my shoulder and neck developed on the same side.
Avatar f tn most of the pain was in the front, but sometimes I would also have pain behind my knee, or on the side, sometimes I would feel like my knee was about to give out, sometimes pressure would build up and then it would pop. Immediately there would be relief but it was very short lived and many times the pain would be worse. Like I said the chiropractor has been the first one to give me long lasting relief.
Avatar f tn t exactly know what it is that they would do for me, but I am really searching for some kind of answers and after 4 years I am willing to try anything to not have to deal with the pain anymore. I have a wedding in March and I am unable to even wear heals as things are right now. I just want to enjoy myself that day and I have this terrible feeling that I will be in pain. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is my last hope.
Avatar m tn I was on the verge of not being able to get around and ready for knee surgery. After about 3-4 weeks of visits, I have had no pain since May of 2013 and my knee no longer hurts either. My right hip was out of place; no wonder I had pain! Go for it. Since there is no neurological issues or fractures, this is your best bet.
1308443 tn?1302693321 ve had bad back pain since I was young and it has been really bad since I was about 12 (am 18 now) and it has stopped me from doing so much and has been very frustrating at times, I have been going to physiotherapy for a few years and chiropractor for a couple of years too but still not really any change but recently I've tried accupuncture in between chiropractor visits and it has really (FINALLY) started helping after all these years so I would give that a go if I was you, it's worth a
1961313 tn?1326290364 Hi! Pain on either sides of the knee is usually related to meniscal tears, injuries to the collateral ligaments, and even to arthritis. So on medial side it will be due to medial meniscal tear. It can also be tendinitis due to inflammation of tendon at the knee joint. You will need X-rays and MRIs of the knee to find the exact. Treatment will follow correct diagnosis. Do consult an orthopedic specialist at the earliest.
Avatar n tn When I get on my left knee I have a severe pain on the outside of the leg just below the knee.
Avatar f tn I’ve been going to a chiropractor for over 2 years( I am on my 3rd one and I really like him... the first one wasn’t doing anything for me, the second one was too far of a drive so I have one closer).. anyway.. I first started going for sciatic pain in my lower back which extended to either leg. For some reason I am not aligned correctly meaning one hip is higher than the other. My pain varies from side to side. But mostly on my right side.
Avatar n tn A week ago I went to my doctor because I was having pain in my left foot,.lateral foot pain. It's been going on for about 6 weeks. It would dull ache most of the time with sudden bouts of extreme pain in which it felt like a knife was digging in my foot. He did an xray and said it wasn't broken and prescribed anti-inflammatory medication. A week later and now I can't bend my left knee back and it's hurting to put pain on my knee.
Avatar n tn Well I went back on Friday and what happened is he had pushed the rib above the one that is usually out of place out of place. So he put them both back in, but today is Saturday and I am in excrutiation pain again. So how long of a setback do you think this will be now? I was almost healed after 10 months of my rib being out and now I get to suffer with having to put one back in that wasn't out to begin with.
Avatar m tn I am 6 feet tall and started walking with hunch back, then approached a chiropractor after about 10 visits, I am able to walk straight, but the pain remains. I visited a physician and after taking x-rays, he said that I have mild Scoliosis with "S" shape pattern. Advised physiotherapy and after two weeks of therapy (stretching, bending and other exercises) there is no improvement.
Avatar f tn Having lower back pain can cause your gait to be abnormal, which can cause the pain in your knee such as from tendonitis. Lower back problems can also cause pain and tingling down into the feet; I have this radiculopathy on my right side, with the occasional shooting pains down my back and right leg, and my right foot almost always hurts.
Avatar f tn t help, I guess I will have to see my GP as this has been going on for close to a year. I would say the pain fluctuates between a 2 to an 8 Oh, the chiropractor did say it could be a "Bakers Cyst" I looked it up, some of the symptoms are similar, it also said that it can go away on its on but takes awhile.
Avatar f tn If you are still having this issue, I suggest seeing a chiropractor, possibly some adjustments might help clear up the pain. The chiropractor will take an x-ray of your lower back first however, discuss the results and then the treatment plan. I hope you feel better soon.
Avatar n tn Also my right knee (my good knee) the muscles have compensated to start acting just like the other knee. tightness on the inside pulling my knee to pull inward. This has really affected my gait. I can't walk now without being in pain. Knee doctor wants nothing to do with me he says I am healed. I went to back therapy and they pulled on my legs which is when the other knee started compensating. I need a wheelchair to walk any long distance.
5664897 tn?1375480696 Hi iamaustralian, I just finished reading your comments. You said you have pain in your knee and thigh? I would make an appointment with your family doctor and have someone take you there. I think your family doctor could examine your knee and thigh and advise you what he or she thinks. Popping your knee isn't a good idea. Do you go to a chiropractor by any chance? Anyway, I would make an appointment with your family doctor to begin with and see what your doctor says. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I wouldn't go to a chiropractor. My experience is that once you see one, you need to keep on going forever for adjustment. I would see a medical doctor though. Good luck.
1135933 tn?1306612016 Thanks for the suggestions. I am going to an orthopedist tomorrow that my neighbor works for...I'm really happy I'm getting to see a well-respected doctor in town. I stopped going to the chiropractor, and they have therapy at this office. I'm looking forward to getting on top of this.
Avatar f tn Have you talked with your doctor about looking at the big picture? Perhaps a 2nd opinion to determine if something more systemic is going on?
1850203 tn?1325253608 This is caused by fluid built up under pressure within the knee cavity in response to an inflammatory problem within the knee. Usually no treatment is given if there are no symptoms. If anti-inflammatory medications are not able to take care of the pain, then draining the fluid is an option. Often corticosteroid injections are given at the same time. Patients remain symptoms free for varying periods of time ranging from few days to year or more.
6736456 tn?1384270917 About 3 days in with this pain my left buttock and behind the left knee started feeling numb (or like a falling asleep feeling). No pain between the buttock and knee. I went to a chiropractor and she said it is not a sciatic pinch because it is not a continuous pain down the leg. My lower back pain is gone, but still have the other pains.
Avatar m tn Two weeks ago after I got up for the day, my left knee was very stiff. It was painful and a little bit swolen. I couldn't bend it or walk without causing even more pain. This caused me to limp, but I went slowly about my business each day. The third day, it got less stiff and less painful, but hasn't changed since then. The improvement was fairly significant. It is still somewhat stiff and painful, and I'm still limping since that improvement 11-12 days ago.
10726861 tn?1412304012 I had a very bad ear infection when I was a child, so bad in fact, that the ENT specialist was going to lance my ear, well, my mom took me to our chiropractor, he worked on it and the next day, it was draining and the pain gone, surgery was cancelled. I have had other painful issues helped by my chiropractor as well, it is amazing how pinched and misplaced vertebrae can cause so many problems.
