Say goodbye to knee pain with Chiropractic
Are you tired of waking up in the morning with chronic knee pain? Are your knees preventing you from achieving your desired level of activity? If so, it’s time to work with a Doctor of Chiropractic to create a personalized plan and address the cause of your knee pain.
It’s important to know that:
Chiropractic treatment aims to realign the spine to its natural position, eliminating the nerve interference (subluxation) causing your ailment, in a painless and non-invasive way.
Knee pain is a common ailment
You usually feel a sensation of stiffness or swelling, pain when bending, walking or jogging, even hearing some popping or cracking sounds, as well as weakness or instability during movement.
The joint and ligaments surrounding the knee must be strong to provide a good support since they help us carry the weight of our body. Whatever the cause, persistent and chronic knee pain can make it difficult for us to walk normally.
This is where chiropractic treatment comes in.
Many people suffering from knee pain are discovering that through chiropractic adjustment, localized pain can be relieved or eliminated naturally.
Possible causes of knee pain
We might think that we suffer from osteoarthritis due to wear and tear of the knee or that it is attributable to an injury. The reality is that the causes can be very diverse, from arthritis to a distended tendon, bursitis, chondromalacia patella, a cartilage injury or a ligament injury, among other ailments.
Knee treatment without painkillers
Many people mistakenly believe that only temporary solutions, such as cortisone injections or prescription medications, are the only way to treat knee pain.
The reality is that Chiropractic is a natural treatment plan that offers results without the harmful side effects of painkillers or the invasive approach of injections, with the exception of stem cell injections.
In some cases complementary therapies are necessary, but in most cases it is possible to significantly reduce medication intake.
Chiropractic treatment for knee pain
Chiropractic begins with an accurate examination and evaluation that will determine the specific cause of your knee pain. Determining exactly what is going on in your case is essential before deciding on a chiropractic treatment plan.
The spine, due to its multifaceted role in the central nervous system, may be the main cause of the knee problem.
The correction of the misalignments of the spine through adjustments is at the heart of chiropractic treatment.
All adjustments received in treatment (back, hip or knee adjustments) are important to mobilize the joints and reduce inflammation, while extending the range of motion.
In addition, the doctor of chiropractic will correct posture to evenly distribute body weight, reducing the stress load on the affected knee.
