Can chiropractic help?
We have found that many people in our community have knee pain and are seeking relief but do not know where to turn.
Our office has a comprehensive 3 pronged approach to help. First, we make sure the pelvis and spine are in alignment. It only makes sense that if the frame is out of line, then the knee cannot track properly. That can cause rubbing and irritation, inflammation in the knee joint and eventually arthritis. Then, we make any necessary adjustments to the knee.
Next, we use Applied Kinesiology muscle testing to make sure all the muscles around the knee are working properly. Sometimes muscles will “blow a circuit breaker” and need to be reset. This helps the muscles to function properly in holding the knee strong and straight. This helps the knee to withstand pressure of exercise, running etc.
Cold Laser therapy is another therapy that is often helpful in reducing inflammation and healing tissue around the knee. Cold Laser therapy usually requires several treatments. The Cold Laser often helps when it seems that nothing else will or could.
For especially tough cases we offer advanced muscle therapy and rehab with an advanced muscle therapy unit to create muscle rehab, neuromuscular reeducation and treat knee pain. So whether you are a marathon champion, a weekend warrior or just someone who wants to feel better climbing the steps Let us take a look at your knee pain and see if there are steps we can take to get you back on track. When you call for an appointment, please let us know if you have any X-rays or knee MRI studies. You can bring them in time for Dr Whittington to look at them before your appointment.
