Chiropractic and the knee: Feeling of weakness in the knee

A feeling of weakness in the knee is sometimes seen in knee injuries as well as conditions of the lower back. Diabetic conditions may cause weakness in the knee which is usually on one side only. Some types of disc conditions may cause weakness in the hamstrings and the knee.When the knee is painful and weak usually the muscles and ligaments about the knee are the cause.
Instability at the knee is most often due to injury to the ACL. Meniscus injury may also cause the knee to give way. ACL instability is often non painful and occurrs during motions that cause rotation at the knee. Instability caused by a meniscus are often painful.
