Not Just the Back… Knee problems??

Chiropractors can help knee pain??? I thought you were back doctors? If I had a dime for every time I heard that line I would be rich! Knee pain can be caused by injuries, mechanical problems, and/or many types of arthritis to name a few. We work with individuals who have ankle, knee and hip issues every day. Knee complaints are a favorite of mine, because the origin of the actual problem is more times then not NOT the knee! Helping educate patients that where the pain is, not always is the source of the problem. Below are some basic facts on knee pain:
Symptoms
• Swelling and stiffness
• Redness and warmth to the touch
• Weakness or instability
• Popping or crunching noises
• Inability to fully straighten the knee
Injuries
• ACL Injury
• Fractures
• Torn Meniscus
• Knee Bursitis
• Patellar Tendinitis

Mechanical Problems
• Loose Body
• Iliotibial Band Syndrome
• Dislocated Kneecap
• Hip or Foot Pain
Types of Arthritis
• Osteoarthritis
• Rheumatoid Arthritis
• Gout
Risk Factors
• Excess Weight
• Lack of Muscle Flexibility or Strength
• Sports/Previous Injury

Our typical treatment of the condition is a thorough assessment of spine as well as legs to find the cause. We can also take digital x-rays of the knee to examine further to see structure. However once we find the interference to the nervous system and relieve it through chiropractic care we see a huge progress in care. We also treat the muscle component with therapeutic exercises to rehab the muscles of the knee, leg and pelvis.
