There are many causes of knee bursitis

The most common causes of knee bursitis can include trauma, arthritis, and overuse of the joint due to participating in certain sports or activities. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are especially linked to knee bursitis. While rest and medications may be used for treatment, chiropractic care, physiotherapy, and massage therapy can all be used to provide additional relief and improve mobility. However, it is recommended that one seeks out chiropractic consultation from a trained chiropractor before beginning any chiropractic treatment plan. With professional guidance and regular chiropractic checkups, knee bursitis sufferers can gain back mobility while dealing with minimal discomfort.

What is knee bursitis?

Knee bursitis is an inflammatory condition affecting the small fluid-filled sacs or ‘bursa’ that are present at and around the knee joint. It occurs when these sacs become swollen or irritated due to long-term pressure, repetitive movements, and stress on the knees during activities such as kneeling for extended periods of time.

What are the symptoms of knee bursitis?

The main symptom of knee bursitis is intense pain and tenderness around the affected area, typically felt at the front or side of the knee. In addition to localized discomfort, people with knee bursitis may also experience stiffness, swelling, difficulty walking, cracking/popping noises when bending/straightening the knee, and warm skin around the inflamed joint.

What are the treatments for knee bursitis?

Knee bursitis can be treated with a variety of methods, such as chiropractic treatments, physiotherapy, and massage therapy. By visiting a chiropractor, patients can relieve pain in the knee area associated with bursitis by using spinal alignment techniques to lessen irritation and swelling. Physiotherapy is also a great option for those experiencing knee bursitis. It can help improve strength, range of motion and flexibility while lessening pain. Massage therapy provides relief through relieving muscle tension and restoring normal blood flow throughout the body.
