Our team of healthcare professionals is dedicated to helping you find a non-invasive and non-pharmacological approach to good health. We use a number of techniques to treat many different types of pain and injuries.
It’s commonly known that chiropractic care makes ample use of the standard chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments are manual manipulation of the spine. When the spine becomes misaligned, a chiropractor may use his hands or another small tool to realign the spine. When the spine is misaligned, the vertebrae may place pressure on the nerves that surround the spinal cord. Realignment helps to alleviate that pain. Back pain, though, isn’t the only condition that a chiropractor on our chiropractic care team can help treat. We also help patients recover from knee pain, headaches, tendonitis, and more.
Knee Pain Causes
Knee pain can be caused by many things. Injuries can include torn, sprained or strained ligaments arthritis, bursitis, and more.
Chiropractic treatment of knee pain begins with an evaluation of the knee. It’s best to understand the cause of the pain before treatment begins. Chronic pain, or pain that’s gradually worsening is a consideration we evaluate before treatment begins.
Some techniques we can use to help with knee pain include:
- Acupuncture: This is an ancient Chinese approach to holistic health care that can help with knee pain. It involves the application of small needles which stimulate the releasing of endorphins within the body.
- Cold Laser Therapy: This non-invasive treatment uses light waves applied to the treatment area. The application of light waves causes cellular stimulation and accelerates healing through cellular regeneration. It helps to reduce inflammation and may improve blood circulation.
- Deep tissue massage: This is a massage that is directed at the source of the pain. This type of massage is designed to be therapeutic..
