Knee Pain

How can a chiropractor help me with my knee pain?

Well it all depends on what the cause of the knee pain is.  There are some things that chiropractic can help with, but there are a lot of other knee problems that a person can have that should not be treated by a chiropractor.  And to play devil’s advocate…there are a few problems that many patients seem to want to rush to surgery over, when in reality, they could get the results they want with conservative care (physical therapy or chiropractic).

Knee pain caused by cancer, infection, inflammatory arthrotide…shouldn’t be treated solely by chiropractic care…if at all.  ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL and Meniscus tears….probably require surgery or physical therapy.

These are the most commonly diagnosed knee pain disorders today.  They are usually pretty easy to catch with physical exam, x-ray and in some cases MRI.  The problem is that they are not – in my opinion – the most COMMON CAUSES of knee pain.

In my office, I have helped a lot of patients who suffered from knee pain. Many of these patients had seen “specialists” who recommended surgeries…sometimes as invasive as Complete Knee Replacements. Lucky for these patients, they found their way to my office.  One of the most overlooked causes of knee pain is simply joint alignment.  Joint misalignment can cause stiffness, swelling, PAIN, difficulty walking or going up and down stairs.

The problem is that in most of these cases, there are no abnormal findings on x-ray or MRI….at least to the untrained eye!

Chiropractors are unique in the healthcare field in that we are trained to look for these misalignments that can cause pain, where many other healthcare providers are not taught to look for them and often end up misdiagnosing the true cause of the problem.

Chiropractors are well trained to perform orthopedic evaluations of the knee – and we are trained to look for the misalignment issues.

If you are suffering from knee pain, a simple chiropractic adjustment to the misaligned joints of your body, might be just what you need to get the relief you are looking for.

Call us today to find out if we can help you too!
