Chiropractic Care for your Knees, Hips, and Ankles

Doctor examining patient's knee

When most people think about chiropractic care, they think of curing back pain. While chiropractic care is great for helping patients who suffer from back pain, it can actually do so much more! We have covered some of the other ailments that chiropractic care can treat, but what a lot of people don’t realize is that chiropractic care is actually great for lower extremity injuries! This is because a lot of lower extremity injuries are soft tissue injuries, i.e. injuries to joints and muscles. Chiropractic care is a conservative, non-invasive approach to treating the neuro-muscular skeletal system, which consists of the body’s joints, muscles, and nerves. By looking at the body as a whole, a chiropractor is able to detect biomechanical and functional issues that can cause pain. With the use of select manual therapies, our chiropractors are able to restore proper function and motion to areas of concern. By restoring motion and function, the body is able to heal quickly and the individual is able to perform daily activities without aches and pains.

 

Your lower extremities are a complex system of joints and muscles, and injuries to the lower extremities are very common in the United States. A lot of lower extremity pain can be traced back to the joints and soft tissues in your lower extremities. Some of the most common injuries are Bursitis (joint pain characterized by pain and swelling), sciatica (nerve pain that shoots from buttocks to legs), inflammation, arthritis, runner’s knee (front and outside knee pain), and tendonitis (tendon inflammation).

 

If you are experiencing any pain in your hips, knees, or ankles, a chiropractor can help determine the cause of pain and set you up with a custom treatment option tailored specifically for you. If you would like to set up a consultation, give us a call and set up your consultation and get back to living your life pain free!
