The Knees Have It!
posted: Sep. 28, 2023.
You ever wonder if your knees have it? Is pain in the knees or is knee pain a secondary thing which is being created from something else? Well, knowing the history and stresses of your knees, evaluating your posture and movement, evaluating x-rays or an MRI of a knee, as well as the positioning of your pelvis and low-back would be the best way to start determining where the pain is coming from. The knee joint is comprised of the ends of the femur and tibia coming together. The anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments connect the femur and tibia in the interior or middle of the joint and the collateral ligaments on the inside and outside of the knee, also called medial and lateral.
There are also meniscus pads located inside the knee joint that the femur literally rides on when in contact with the tibia. Each of these structures can cause pain if damaged. If there is stress on these structures caused by an imbalance in the body at the knee, or in the pelvis, or low back you can get pain as well. Start by getting checked by a chiropractor. They'll let you know if your knees have it.
