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.

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.

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.

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.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
