Knee Pain Treatment

Knee pain is almost as common of a complaint, in a chiropractor’s office, as the common cold. The chiropractor frequently gets a lot of patients seeking alternative relief from knee pain instead of going to an orthopaedic doctor. A chiropractor, when treating a patient for knee pain, will conduct an evaluation; testing for any spinal or pelvic involvement, in addition to knee dysfunction.

In several situations and activities, the helpless knee is prone to accidents and injuries like the following, and knee pain is an unwelcome consequence:
1. Injuries from impact
2. Heavy blows to the knee from outside causes
3. Dashboard related injuries
4. Falls that directly hit the knee

Injuries to the soft tissue, producing knee pain, are indicative of either overuse or misuse. Commonly seen in a chiropractor’s office are:
1. Athlete complaining of front knee pain.
2. Senior patients complaining of stiffness and knee pain.
3. Young player with ache over the tibial tuberosity.
4. Knee instability from a patient.

A conservative methodology to knee pain treatment is the first approach taken. A combination of non-invasive therapeutic measures will often relieve knee pain. These include: chiropractic adjustments, applying heat or cold, exercises to strengthen muscles that support the knee and refraining from activities that may worsen knee pain.

Your chiropractor is a licensed professional who will conduct a complete history-taking and examination, including orthopaedic and neurological testing and diagnostic x-ray images to identify the cause of your knee pain. Based on these, your chiropractor will design a particular management plan that is appropriate for your case.
