Knees are one of the most crucial and complex joints in the body, enduring the brunt of our physical activities and bearing our body weight. When people experience knee pain, especially on-going discomfort that impacts their daily life, they often seek relief that is not only effective but also sustainable. For many individuals in New Brunswick and Riverview areas, the answer to their knee pain can be found at Body By Karen, where innovative methods like RAPID NeuroFascial Reset and holistic approaches such as Yin Yoga are transforming how knee pain is managed.

The Complexities of Knee Pain: Diving into the Depths

Knee pain is not a simple inevitability of age or a mere barrier of mobility. It is as complex as the network of bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles that make up the knee joint. The discomfort can stem from numerous sources, such as overuse injuries, muscle imbalances, osteoarthritis, or overexertion from a physically demanding job or sports. Identifying the root cause is crucial in developing an effective treatment plan.

The Role of Age and Wear and Tear

Many still ascribe knee pain to a natural side effect of aging, but this narrative is outdated. Rather than deterioration, many knee issues are better understood as a result of insufficient movement. The less we move, the less the knee is hydrated and nourished through movement, and instead, it can become stiff and painful.

Exercise and Activity as a Cause

Repetitive stress from running, squatting, jumping, or even standing for prolonged periods can lead to painful knee conditions like patellofemoral pain syndrome or patellar tendonitis. Sudden injuries, such as tears to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or meniscus, can arise from sports or accidents.

Muscle Imbalances and the Patella

The patella, or kneecap, glides along a groove in the femur as the knee bends. Weak or imbalanced thigh muscles can expose the patella to more stress, causing it to track incorrectly and lead to wear and tear.

Obesity, Inflammatory Conditions, and Trauma

Obesity, with its added mechanical stress, can aggravate inflammation and pain in the knee joint. Similarly, conditions like rheumatoid arthritis can cause widespread inflammation, leading to chronic knee pain. Acute injuries resulting from falls or trauma can also manifest as profound, immediate pain in the knee.
