Knee Pain Treatment From a Chiropractor
Your knees take a beating in most sports that you play. The consistent pounding that they take can begin to wear on your knees. Repetitive motion, especially during practice where you are performing the same task over and over, can tear tissues around the knee.
You can get hit in the knee, fall on your knee, twist and sprain your knee. You can tear the cartilage in your knee. The constant stress and injuries involving your knees can cause tendonitis, bursitis, and arthritis.
The symptoms of a knee sprain:
- You hear a popping noise inside of your knee at the time of an injury
- Struggle to bend your knee
- Your knee feels weak when trying to stand
To treat your knee pain, our chiropractor will discuss any injuries or accidents you have had lately, whether those incidents are knee-related or not. Our chiropractor will check and correct your knee, hip, and spine alignment. Sometimes, problems away from your knee can put undue stress on your knee and make it painful.
Massage and ultrasound therapies can reduce swelling, thus decreasing pain and improving your mobility. It will also increase blood flow to the area and support the natural healing process. Proper taping of your knee will give it support while it is healing. Targeted exercises will help to build strength and stability. Pain and stiffness of other joints can be treated similarly to the knee.
