Have you ever thought about how much you use your knees on a daily basis? Bending over to pick up groceries, climbing stairs, walking to your car, and even just getting up in the morning are all activities that use your knees. These are all normal activities that can become difficult if you are experiencing knee pain. Knee pain can really have a negative impact on your day-to-day life. Thankfully, with chiropractic care, there is an option to help relieve your pain.
About Your Knee
The knee is a complex joint that relies on ligaments and muscles for stability and is a major weight-bearing joint. You shouldn’t have to live with knee pain and consider it part of your everyday life – that is where chiropractic care comes in to help!
What Causes Knee Pain?
Many things can cause knee pain – a sports injury, walking on it wrong, or cartilage degradation. The incident might be apparent, or it could progress subtly over time.
Many doctors will recommend surgery or medication in these cases, but those aren’t the only two options. You can visit a chiropractor who can help relieve your pain.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
No matter the cause of your knee pain, there isn’t a one size fits all solution. A chiropractor will check not only your knee but also your lower back, pelvis, hips, ankles, and foot because all of these joints have a direct impact on your knee.
A chiropractor will work with you to help reduce joint inflammation and pain using ice. They will also work to normalize joint function by using various manipulation techniques; these techniques help increase movement as well as reduce pain. A chiropractor will also help put you on an exercise program to help improve your strength and stability to help prevent future injuries when needed.
