Signs or Symptoms

Tenderness, ache or pain around and under the kneecap.

Description

The cartilage under the kneecap breaks down due to misuse.

Causes

Malformation of the bone, overuse, muscular imbalances.

Standard Treatment

Anti-inflammatories, cortisone, stretching.

AK Approach

Testing is done to determine muscle imbalances around the knee.  Excessive stress can also come from imbalances in the foot, ankle, or pelvis.  Specific muscle therapies are used to normalize the muscle actions around the knee, especially the patella (the kneecap).  Nutritional therapies aimed at decreasing inflammation are utilized.

Following this a rehabilitative program to develop equal muscle strength reinforced with a nutritional program to maximize muscle and cartilage regeneration are used. Other lifestyle modifications are used to prevent or minimize exacerbating the condition. A specific program for your needs is created.
