The Stages of Chiropractic Knee Treatment
Assessing the Knee Joint
When you visit our chiropractic facility, the first step taken by our chiropractor is an assessment of the knee and the surrounding structures. It helps us identify the source of the pain and the likely contributors. In some instances, the pain could have a different origin in the hip or pelvis. We treat every affected area to prevent a chronic condition and to ensure improvement of functionality in the long run.
Reducing Pain and Inflammation
Upon identifying where the knee pain originates from, the chiropractor uses various methods to reduce the inflammation and pain in the affected area. We may use sports tape or heat and cold therapy, depending on the nature of the pain. Massage and ultrasound therapy may also be used to reduce the muscle spasms around the knee.
Restoration of Joint Function
We use chiropractic manipulation techniques to restore proper movement of the knee. Manipulation is very effective at pain reduction and the restoration of movement.
We may also recommend simple exercises meant to improve your stability, strength, and flexibility in the joints. Physical exercises will quicken the healing process and help in the prevention of knee problems in the long run.
