How to treat knee pain? Knee pain can be successfully treated using chiropractic adjustments to relieve pressure on the knee joints or align your spine if the pain is referred from another part of the body. Other natural treatments such as massage therapy, acupuncture and physical therapy can also make a difference in your level of pain and help you regain mobility. At our clinic, we will make a point of creating a customized treatment plan that is unique to your situation, so you can finally get the relief you need.
Knee Pain Relief
In most cases, the first resort to treat acute or chronic knee pain is over-the-counter medication, but these pharmaceuticals only provide temporary relief of your symptoms. When the symptoms are numbed with painkillers, the root cause of your knee pain is never addressed and will continue to surface, reducing your quality of life.
Many people consider surgery to be their only option for pain relief, but before you agree to an elective replacement surgery consider the complications associated with operations. Surgical procedures also require long downtime, which includes months of post-operative rehabilitation needed for recovery.
We utilize integrative, non-surgical approaches to treating knee pain with drug-free protocols. Depending on your diagnosis, our doctor may recommend a combination of chiropractic adjustments, specialized exercises, physical therapy and rehabilitation, and acupuncture to get you all-natural relief.
Chiropractic Adjustments for Knees
For chronic knee pain, there are several approaches to managing your aches. When joints become sore or stiff, it could be due to your joints moving out of alignment from trauma or repeated activities. Our chiropractor can help by gently re-aligning your knees and other joints if the pain is being referred from a different part of your body. Chiropractic care and our other physical modalities offer relief of these conditions by gently establishing balance to allow your body to heal naturally.
Some of the other treatments we offer that could provide relief from your knee pain include:
- Massage Therapy – Our massage therapist will manipulate soft tissue to increase blood flow and reduce your pain.
- Spinal Decompression – This gentle form of traction will stretch your spine and may work well for pain referred to your knees from other areas.
- Acupuncture – Blood flow and Qi energy are restored using this Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment that has existed for thousands of years.
- Physical Therapy – Pain is relieved and mobility is restored using specialized exercises and equipment.
