Effective knee joint and knee pain treatment in Singapore that heals
Precise diagnosis is key if knee joint and knee pain treatment is to be effective. The reason your knee is hurting may be down to issues in other parts of your body.
Knee pain is a common ailment and affects people of all ages. The knee is a complex, major weight-bearing joint that depends heavily on ligaments and muscles for stability.
Your knee contains the patellofemoral joint between the thigh and kneecap and the tibiofemoral joint connecting your shinbone and thigh. There’re also 2 ring-shaped discs of cartilage in the knee, called the menisci.
Evaluating and treating knee pain
Knee problems can be caused by an injury – such as a strain or sprain – or persistent (chronic) conditions that may be the result of several factors.
Medical conditions that can cause knee pain include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis – an auto-immune inflammatory ailment that results in swelling.
- Osteoarthritis – inflammation caused by degeneration of the knee joint.
- Tendonitis – inflammation of a tendon.
- Bursitis – inflammation caused by overuse of the knee.
- Chondromalacia patellae (runner’s knee) – deterioration of cartilage in the kneecap.
- Gout – arthritis caused by an accumulation of uric acid.
- Baker’s cyst (popliteal cyst) – a build-up of the fluid that lubricates the joint behind the knee.
Knee pain can also be caused by problems in other areas that directly impact the joint – the low back, hip, ankle, and feet – and overweight people are more at risk.
Some knee problems – particularly osteoarthritis – are likely to be permanent because the structure of the knee is damaged. Without comprehensive treatment, you’ll suffer pain, inflammation, and swelling in your knee on an ongoing basis.

Chiropractic knee joint and knee pain treatment
Chiropractic provides a particularly effective remedy for knee problems because it’s based on the relationship between the structure of the body – mainly the spine – and the nervous system.
Our chiropractic clinic will not only examine your knee but also assess other areas of your body. Pain can be perceived in the knee when the cause is in structures such as the lower back, pelvis, or feet. And if other joints are malfunctioning, stress on the knee joint can increase.
Our chiropractor will take a comprehensive medical history and carry out a thorough biochemical and physical evaluation. This will result in a precise diagnosis enabling the most effective treatment, tailored to addressing your specific problems by easing pain, reducing inflammation, and improving mobility.
Chiropractic adjustment techniques for knee problems
Chiropractic adjustment techniques for knee problems include trigger point therapy and myofascial release.
Trigger points – painful knots in a muscle – develop through injury or overuse. Trigger point therapy entails the application of manual pressure to the painful area. This can quickly ease pain in muscles and other soft tissue.
Myofascial release is another hands-on technique. It involves gentle, sustained pressure on the myofascial connective tissue to restore motion and alleviate pain.
