Knee Pain

The knee joint takes on a lot of stress every day. It is a stable joint that is continuously being bombarded with micro traumas. Over time the accumulation of these daily micro traumas can lead to knee pain and discomfort. 

Knee PainThe common conditions seen in our office include:

Arthritis
Cartilage injuries
IT band syndrome
Ligament injuries
Osgood's schlatter
Meniscus injuries
Tendon injuries
Referred Pain from other areas

All of these conditions are diagnosed and cared for by our chiropractic joint specialist. The knee is a joint that is located in the middle of the lower extremity so knee pain can be caused by improper foot support or low back and pelvic dysfunction. That is why our team will evaluate the entire lower extremity as well as the pelvis and low back. A knee problem can also affect the joints in other areas of the body and it is important to address these changes as well.

When should I get chiropractic or acupuncture treatment?

You have been given painkillers or taken anti-inflammatories and been told to rest with no long-term improvement.
