Knee pain can be difficult to treat. The feeling of pain does not always reflect its source. Your pain could be from soft tissue damage, misalignment, or could originate from a separate area of the body. Chiropractic treatment can help non-catastrophic knee injuries heal. At Injury Health Center, we see patients from the Sanford, Daytona, and Orlando areas for the treatment of knee pain. Read on to learn more about how our chiropractor can help you become pain-free.
A Look at the Causes of Knee Pain
Your knees do a lot of work to support your body. The knees are load-bearing joints that undergo major stress loads every time you take a step or simply stop to catch your breath. Over time, the joints change from wear and tear which can result in knee pain. Arthritis, excess weight, sports injuries, and more are all factors that contribute to knee pain. These issues also affect the soft tissues that help support the joint and keep it in place. Another cause of knee pain is sciatica, a condition in which vertebrae exert pressure on the sciatic nerve, resulting in shooting pain down the leg and lower back. Most of these conditions can be addressed by our chiropractor.
When to See a Chiropractor for Knee Pain
Chiropractic care is a safe, natural, and effective means of reducing knee pain and treating the issue at its root cause. Chiropractic care does not rely on prescription medication or invasive surgery, making it worth exploring before committing to serious procedures and potentially addictive pharmaceuticals.
Sometimes knee pain doesn't have an obvious cause. The trained eye of our chiropractor can determine the source of your knee pain before creating a chiropractic care plan designed to heal it. It may be that your walking gait is off and causing you to load more pressure onto one knee, or an old injury has resurfaced and is making it difficult for you to move comfortably. Once our chiropractor has uncovered the cause, effective treatment can begin.
