Chiropractic Care for Knee Pain
Knee pain is one of the most common pains that result from injuries, ruptured ligaments, and medical conditions like arthritis. Studies show that one in four adults experience chronic knee pain. While invasive remedies like knee replacement have been the go-to treatment for such ailments, more patients now prefer non-invasive alternatives like chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care provides a more holistic approach to relieving pain because it focuses on the musculoskeletal system. This treatment not only reduces pain but also improves mobility and one's quality of life. At Full Body Rejuvenation Center, we offer chiropractic care to patients with musculoskeletal pains in Lithonia and Stonecrest, GA. Read on to learn more about knee pain and how we can help.
What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is a complementary treatment that stimulates the body's natural healing abilities. The premise is to align different body parts to enhance their overall well-being and how the nervous system functions. The treatment provides a more holistic approach to treating the body as it deals with the possible causes of the pain. It could be that you got injured, have poor lifestyle habits, or have underlying conditions causing pain. Our chiropractor diagnoses the possible problem and uses specific chiropractic techniques to address it.
How Chiropractic Care Deals With Pain in the Knee
A chiropractor begins by diagnosing the problem to determine its real cause and the best form of chiropractic treatment. They ask about your medical history and recent injuries you may have developed that could have led to the pain.
Often, patients develop such pain due to compensatory causes like a misalignment in the knee or tightness of another part of the body, which only manifests as pain in the knee. The chiropractor also considers accompanying symptoms like weakness, inflammation, and stiffness to determine the best treatment.
After the assessment, the doctor develops a customized chiropractic treatment for your problem. If the pain results from an underlying condition, the treatment involves addressing the cause of that pain. The doctor may use one or a combination of the following chiropractic techniques to treat the pain:
- Traction: The doctor uses this technique to improve mobility, reduce pain, and stiffness.
- Manual manipulation: This chiropractic technique focuses on aligning the joints and the spine to improve posture, mobility, and reduce pain.
- Electrotherapy: This treatment is ideal for patients with inflamed knees. The device releases electrical currents that reduce swelling, enhance blood flow, and ease tension.
- Rehabilitation exercises: The doctor will also recommend exercises you can perform at home to strengthen the knee and enhance mobility.
