Chiropractors for Knee Pain

on the Sunshine Coast

Is knee pain disrupting your daily activities? At Rasura Chiropractic Centres, we understand the importance of pain-free mobility. With 34 years of experience, we're committed to helping you get back to using your knee to keep up with your active life.

What causes knee pain and how does it affect our health?

Our knees are intricate joints that we use every single day, so it’s no surprise that they are prone to developing problems.

Knee pain can have many different origins. It can stem from different injuries such as tendon or ligament tears, meniscus tears, fractures, wear and tear or arthritis. It can be amplified by obesity, poor biomechanics or alignment, nerve damage, or even cancer.

However, its primary cause is osteoarthritis, which affects around 1 in 11 people in Australia. Other conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, tendinitis or gout also contribute to knee pain.

Regardless of its cause, knee pain can limit your mobility and make it difficult to carry your daily activities.

How we can help

Our chiropractic care offers a holistic approach, addressing not only your immediate pain but most importantly its root causes, so you can achieve long-term knee health and reclaim your mobility. Your treatment may include:
