There's No Reason to Put Up With Pain In Your Knees

Pain felt in the knee might in actual fact originate from a different area of the body. The areas of the body that could be involved include the:
  • Pelvis
  • Hips
  • Ankles
  • Feet
  • Lower back
Treating the lower joints is the first step in returning your knee to normal. While chiropractors primarily specialize in treating the back, the methods they use to treat back pain and poor posture can also help alleviate sore knees.

Causes of Knee Pain

When lower joints near the knee are not working properly, they can place strain on the joint. This constant strain contributes to knee pain, and treating these joints will also alleviate pain in other areas of the body.

The Examination

Your chiropractor will examine your gait, muscles, ligaments and joints to determine what lifestyle decisions you are making that can contribute to knee pain.

Building Your Team

A chiropractor can serve as part of your medical team alongside a physical therapist and a fitness trainer. The chiropractor's role will be to re-establish correct muscle balance.

Recovery Through Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractors use a chiropractic adjustment to correct functionality without the need for surgery. Chiropractors can also treat strains and sprains that contribute to sore knees.

Myofascial Release

Knee pain can result from overworked muscles. Your chiropractor can use Myofascial Release to relax your muscles to promote optimal functioning. Myofascial release can also help your muscles contract more naturally.
