Knee Pain?

knee_pain_chiropractic knee_pain_chiropractic

Knee pain is quite common. In fact, 23% of the general population and 29% of adults experience anterior knee pain, annually.  You may have heard of this knee pain being referred to as patellofemoral pain or runner's knee. Typically experienced behind or around the knee cap, this pain may limit a person's ability to perform basic activities, interfering in their daily life. Besides running, this pain can also be aggravated by kneeling, squatting, jumping, walking up and down stairs, or sitting with bent knees for long periods of time. Since good function of the knee is essential for posture, balance and normal gait, it is important to address knee issues early on to prevent build up. 

How can a Chiropractor help?

A chiropractor can help by carrying out a head to toe assessment, looking for misalignment and dysfunction in the body and related structures of the knee.  A personalized treatment plan may include a few approaches.

  1. Stretches and exercises for the hip and knee.
  2. Adjustments to the pelvis, spine, hip and knee.
  3. In cases where there is over-pronation of the feet, orthotics may be discussed.
