Soft tissue Instabilities Are Leading Causes Of Knee Pain & Knee Degeneration

Knee pain is a common problem of all ages. The knees are major weight-bearing joints of the body. For the knees to function well, it needs stable joints and healthy connective tissues. The connective tissues of the knee include muscles, ligaments, and meniscus. They are the leading cause of knee arthritis, degeneration, knee injuries, and knee pain. Suppose your knee muscles and ligaments are weak or unstable, the knee joint scums to pain and injure. Neglect of minor soft tissue problems can lead to knee arthritis and knee degeneration. 

Any weakness in the connective tissues leads to instabilities of the knee joint and eventual pain. Repetitive activities or injuries weaken the knee, and as such, are classified as sources of instabilities. In short, knee pain results from instabilities in muscles, ligaments, meniscus, cartilage, or knee joints. If neglected, it leads to degenerative changes. Contact our experts for the best non-surgical knee pain treatment in Malaysia today.

A degenerated knee is a weak knee resulting from weak soft tissues

A degenerated knee is a weak knee predisposed to further injury and damage. In the initial stages, the pain is mild and intermittent. However, as degenerative changes settle in or progress with time, the severity of knee pain and its’ frequency becomes prominent. Therefore, you should not ignore even a mildly painful knee. Targeted corrective knee pain treatment from Chiropractic Specialty Center® is your best option for knee pain. Let’s go over the knee joint anatomy before discussing knee treatment options.

Knee Treatment Must Be Holistic & Comprehensive To Recover

Non-invasive knee treatment is the best option for recovery. However, to heal, you need extensive therapies. In other words, the care you get must be inclusive of all damaged tissues and structures. It is rare to find a single issue when it comes to knee problems. Often, various tissues are damaged, including the ligaments, muscles, tendons, cartilage, meniscus, and knee joint. Let's go over some of the knee structures for a better understanding.

The long bones of the leg form your knee joint. The femur (thigh bone), tibia, and fibula (shin bones) form the knee. The main weight-bearing bones of the knee are the femur and tibia. Your thigh bone or femur transmits the weight of the body onto the knee joint. Movement, mobility, weight-bearing, and shock-absorbance are functions that supported the meniscus.

A meniscus is firmly attached on top of the tibia. It allows for weight-bearing, shock absorbance, and effortless gliding motions of the femur. The cartilage (slippery shiny) surface of the femur enables effortless, smooth gliding of the femur. The fibula is the smaller bone on the side of the leg, mainly for the attachment of muscles and connective tissues. A stable knee joint is one where the bones, meniscus, and connective tissues are correctly aligned and held in place. Our clinical teams have the knowledge, experience, and advanced therapy devices to fix and repair severe knee conditions through our targeted knee pain treatment programs.

What Are The Common Causes Of A Painful Knee?

The pain in your knees results from premature wear and tears of structures and tissues that support the knee joint. The most common knee problems occur from tendinopathy, torn ligaments, or tears in the meniscus. For athletes, especially runners, knee pain is caused by irritation or damage to the kneecap (patella). If you partake in sports that require running or if you are a runner, your knee pain is classified as a “Runner’s Knee.” If you are not an athlete and experience pain at or around your kneecap, the condition is referred to as “Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome.” Opt for our runner's knee pain treatment program today.

Patellofemoral pain syndrome and runner’s knee pain are synonyms. They are descriptive of damage to thigh muscles (spasmodic or damaged Quadratus femoris muscle), tendons (patella tendonitis), or irritation of the TFL (Tensor-Fascia-Latae) or the Iliotibial bands (IT bands). Other causes of knee pain include the following:

  1. Fractures
  2. Dislocations
  3. ACL or Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tears or Injuries
  4. PCL or the Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries
  5. Arthritis & Degenerative changes in the articular surface (worn-out cartilage)

All You Need To Know About Baker's Cyst

Baker's cyst or popliteal cyst is the result of fluid accumulation at the back of the knee. The fluid in the cyst is synovial in origin (synovial fluid). A popliteal or baker’s cyst's symptoms include stiffness or pain at the knee or behind the knee. Pain can extend down towards the calf.

In most cases, people are not aware that they have a popliteal cyst because they do not feel them. However, some experience tightness in the leg, a locking sensation, pain, and discomfort. Patients with Baker's cysts also present a reduction in their range of motion. Of course, the most common sign of a Baker’s cyst is swelling behind the knee with pain in the area.

Knee treatment for a baker’s cyst is best through targeted collaborative methods of chiropractic and physiotherapy. Visit or call Chiropractic Specialty Center® today for the best knee pain treatment in Malaysia.

Knee Pain Treatment For An ACL Tear (Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear)

When it comes to knees, things are always more complicated on the inside than they appear on the outside. While the knee seems to be a simple joint, it contains numerous parts connected and moving in different ways to function as a whole. This means that more parts can become damaged or injured as a result of strenuous physical activity.

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the many ligaments found within the knee. ACL tears can cause severe knee pain. You need surgery for full-thickness tears (complete ACL tears or 100% torn ACL)! However, if the ACL tears are partial, our doctors of chiropractic and clinical physiotherapists can help with corrective research-based knee pain treatment.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear Grades & Severity

The diagnosis of an ACL tear is based on the severity of the injury. Four categories are ranging from partial tearing in Grade 1 to severe tearing in Grade 4. The Grade 1 knee or ACL injury is the mildest and most common; however, if you suffer from a Grade 4 tear, the ACL injury is likely part of several other knee injuries. Grade 4 injuries require surgery. These are those known as full-thickness tears.

To identify an ACL tear from other types of knee injuries, a person could experience some of these symptoms:

  • Problems pivoting or twisting
  • Issues when changing direction
  • Discomfort or pain when walking down the stairs
  • Instability when walking or running downhills
  • Pain or weakness in the knee
  • Crunching sounds in the knee
  • Inflammation around the knee
  • Pain or difficulty squatting

Knee Pain Treatment For Torn Posterior Cruciate Ligament

The posterior cruciate ligament, also known as the PCL, is a ligament found within the knee. The ligament itself is comprised of a strong band of tissues that connects the tibia to the femur. Typically, people will experience injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament in the knee; however, it is also possible for a person to experience injuries or tears of the PCL.

The most common cause of PCL-related knee pain occurs from falls, a hit, or strikes, especially when the knee is bent. Diagnosis and classification of PCL tears are the same as it was for the ACL knee injuries. 

While surgical intervention is sometimes required for PCL injuries, PCL tears' best knee pain treatment is our non-surgical option. These knee treatments include corrective chiropractic combined with physiotherapy. Home care for knee pain and knee injuries is best with ice packs on the area, compression, crutches when walking, and plenty of rest. If it is a partial tear, the chances are likely it will repair itself with time. However, if the pain continues, call our center. We can help!

Arthritis & Knee Pain

Arthritis is a common cause of knee pain. The knee joints get impacted by two forms of arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis affect the cartilage of the knee joint. Cartilage is a protective covering at the ends of bones that provide a cushion and a smooth surface for mobility. The knee joint's cartilage is about 2 to 3m in thickness—osteoarthritis results from premature wear and tear. Rheumatoid arthritis is related to an autoimmune disorder where the body's defense mechanism attacks the cartilage.

The clinical experts at Chiropractic Specialty Center® (CSC) provide integrative therapy options that utilized advanced methodology and technology. Our treatments are better compared to competing centers. CSC's methods and advanced technology will deliver the results you need for arthritis pain.  Get the best arthritis pain treatment in Malaysia today.

Knee Pain, Meniscus Tear & Injury Treatment In Malaysia

As with many knee injuries, a meniscal tear causes severe knee pain. An injured or torn meniscus is a common knee injury. Let's start with some background information on the meniscus before covering your knee pain treatment options for a damaged meniscus.

A meniscus is a form of cartilage within the knee. The meniscus' function is to protect and stabilize the knee, assist with knee movements, prevent friction, lubricate and protect the knee cartilage. However, all it takes to tear this cartilage is a twist at the knee despite the protection factor. In some instances, some of the broken cartilaginous components of the meniscus can break loose, catching in the joint resulting in a locking of the knee. [expander_maker id="1" more="Read More" less="Read Less"]

Meniscal tears (tears of the meniscus) occur with twisting the knee or sudden changes in direction while moving fast or running. The degree of damage is relative to the intensity of activity that caused the tear. In some cases, meniscal tears occur in conjunction with ligamentous tears. In other words, it is not uncommon for a meniscus patient to also have tears in the ACL, PCL, or other collateral ligaments of the knee.

What Are The Symptoms Of A Meniscus Tear?

  • Knee pain
  • Inflammation of the knee
  • Problems bending or straightening the leg
  • Popping sensations during the injury
  • Locking of the knee

In most cases, the initial pain is not too severe. As such, people ignore the injury. However, once swelling sets in, the pain intensifies, and the injury becomes severe if not dealt with by a professional. The best treatment option for a meniscal tear is our corrective research-based knee pain treatment through chiropractic combined with physiotherapy in Malaysia.
