You’ve injured your knee in a sports accident, or your knees just haven’t been the same since you started lifting heavier in the gym. Dr. Johnson at Johnson Chiropractic Center in Fayetteville, AR, can help relieve your knee pain that is associated with misalignment in the spine and hips. You can also experience relief from direct maneuvers to the knee and surrounding joints, ligaments, and fascia with the help of a good chiropractor.
What Are the Common Causes of Knee Pain?
Knee pain comes in many forms:
- Sports injuries like an ACL tear
- Meniscus damage
- Joint stiffness and inflammation
- Shooting pain
The associated muscles connected to the knee can cause soreness, pain, or tightness elsewhere in your body. When any of your muscles are tight or injured, they can cause knee pain. If your hamstrings are shortened, it can contribute to back pain and other musculoskeletal issues. From a chiropractic perspective, the body must be treated as a whole, even if knee pain is your main complaint.
How Do Chiropractors Help with Knee Pain?
Knee pain causes are just as varied as the pain itself. Perhaps you’ve been over-training, you’ve done some serious damage in a recent sporting event, or you were in a car accident. No matter the reason you’re experiencing pain in your knees, there are chiropractic solutions that can help.
Chiropractors can also sometimes help you recover from surgery if you’ve already had one, or in some cases, avoid one by slowly rehabilitating the injury back to health.
There are several methods that chiropractors use to help restore an injured or aching knee:
- Realignment of the entire spine, hips, and knee joints
- tens therapy (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation)
- Hot and cold therapy
- Craniosacral therapy
- Anti-inflammatory medications
