When Should I Get Chiropractic Treatment for Knee Pain?
The knee is a complex joint that relies heavily on ligaments and muscles for stability. When pain is perceived as coming from the knee, all the anatomical components need to be examined, and in addition to the knee joint, the low back, pelvis, hip, ankle, and foot need to be examined due to the direct influence they have on the knee, and vice versa.
Our approach to assessing and treating the knee includes the evaluation of the other joints and muscles relating to the knee. This is for several reasons:
Pain can often be referred from the low back, pelvis, and hip into the knee
If other joints in the legs are not working correctly, they put pressure on the knee
Knee Pain Relief Without Drugs and Surgery
If you go to an orthopedic surgeon for knee pain, you will often be prescribed medication to help with pain, or surgery. That's what they are trained to do. But chiropractors are trained to find the root cause of knee pain, which all too foten is related to another joint, like the ankle or hip. Nothing will fix the knee unless all of the problems relating to the knee problem are found and fixed. That's why chiropractic treatment and laser therapy should be your first stop to end knee pain.
