  Title Reduction of knee pain in a 45-year-old woman after pelvic manipulation and kinesiology taping: A case report
Journal J Chiropr Med. 2019 Sep;18(3):236-241
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: The purpose of this case report is to describe the chiropractic management of a patient with knee pain stemming from pelvic imbalance.

Clinical Features: A female patient presented to a chiropractic clinic with ongoing anteromedial knee pain whenever she walks. The patient reported being unable to walk a half mile without her knee feeling like it would “give out.”

Intervention and Outcome: The patient received 5 treatments focusing on the pelvic imbalance and reduced muscle strength discovered in the patient's initial evaluation. Chiropractic manipulation of the sacroiliac joint, kinesiology taping, and gluteus medius exercises were administered. The Verbal Rating Scale, muscle strength assessment, and orthopedic evaluation measured the patient's progress. After 5 treatments the Verbal Rating Scale went from 8 to 1 and gluteus medius strength scored 5 of 5.

Conclusion: The patient in this case reported resolution of her knee pain after 5 treatments over the course of 10 days. The patient reported no pain while walking nor while performing other activities of daily living. Although this is one case, correcting pelvic balance via conservative measures resolved the knee pain. Implementing therapy proximal to the complaint may be a viable option for patients with knee pain.
