There are a number of common causes of knee pain. These include a dislocated knee, knee bursae, frozen knee, arthritis, rotator cuff injury, tendinitis, strains, and sprains. At the frozen stage, the pain may lesson while the stiffness is still felt. This can last for several months. During the thawing stage, movement will slowly increase in a one to two year period. 

What is Frozen Knee?

Frozen Knee is one of several joints that is also called Frozen Joint syndrome or Adhesive Capsulitis. There are three parts to frozen joint syndrome. These are pain and stiffness that occur for weeks or months. 

What is Knee Bursae?

 Knee bursae is the inflammation of the bursa, which is near the joint in your knees. The bursa is a small sac filled with fluid. Pain relief can occur with chiropractic adjustments.

What is Tendinitis?

Knee tendinitis usually occurs with more active patients and those involved in sports. The affected tendon, in this case, the knees, become inflamed due to overuse. Chiropractic treatments can help ease the pain of tendinitis.
