Knee pain quite often arises from a condition known as: patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). Physical activities such as running, jumping, exercising with weights may cause this; even something as basic as walking may cause this problem.

Patellofemoral syndrome may be prevented or eased by properly warming up and stretching to lengthen the structures around the knee. Ligaments and tendons that are hypertonic (“too tight”) may cause or contribute to PFPS. A study in the Journal of the Neuromusculoskeletal System investigated this potential intervention in 30 patients with PFPS. There were two groups of patients: The first group received “patella mobilization” (extension of the knee with pressure and movement applied for 10 minutes, followed by patellar adjustment in the direction of restricted movement); the second group received detuned ultrasound as placebo (five minutes of ultrasound with the intensity set at zero).

Patients receiving joint mobilization/manipulation had positive improvements in PFPS symptoms (reduction in pain, improved range of motion of the knee) compared with the placebo group. Manipulation of the knee is beneficial especially when combined with other treatment options such as exercise, therapeutic modalities, orthotics and activity modification. If you’re suffering from knee pain and would like to know more about nonsurgical approaches to relieving your pain, Eshanov Chiropractic in Montclair encourages you to call for an evaluation to see of Patella Mobilization, or a manipulation of the knee may be right for you. Please call 973-900-2660.

Great Health Awaits,

Dr. Gary Eshanov
