Knee Pain and Injury

Most knee pain is the result of some type of injurious stress to the knee. Like all joints, the muscles surrounding the joint capsule moves the bones into flexion and extension, and the “side of the knee” muscles help stabilize it from medial and lateral stress and impacts. The meniscus is the cartilaginous layer between the femur and the tibia. All soft tissue around the knees, whether muscle, tendon, ligament, or meniscus, can be repaired and strengthened with manual muscle work and nutritional therapies to strengthen and stabilize connective tissue. The femur, tibia, fibula and patella can be adjusted to restore proper bone alignment, and the meniscus even has its own adjustment to restore its proper position. There is also noted relationships between the knees and the liver, gall bladder, small intestines, and adrenals through the common nerve supply, meridian and lymphatic connections.
