Knee pain is increasingly becoming a more common problem in society. It is a complaint we see frequently. The most common complaint associated with knee pain is considered the normal “wear and tear.” Another ailment that affects the knee is osteoarthritis. The symptoms and progression of osteoarthritis and knee pain can be reduced through our individualized approach to chiropractic care.
The knee is a complex joint that relies heavily on ligaments and muscles for stability. The knee is a major weight bearing joint which makes it more susceptible to injury. To ensure your knee and surrounding areas are working in conjunction, we will be sure to examine your knee joint as well as your low back, pelvis, hip, ankle and foot.
Some things to consider when suffering from knee pain:
- Is it limiting your day-to-day or sporting activities?
- Have you tried painkillers and been told to rest with no long-term improvement?
- Have you been told you have arthritis and there is nothing that can be done?
Chiropractic treatment may well be the answer if you said yes to either of the questions above.
