Knee Pain

Can Chiropractic treat knee pain? Yes, knee pain can be treated with chiropractic adjustments. There are several factors that can cause pain to the knees and must be corrected in order to prevent damage to the joint and surrounding tissues. One of the most common causes is excessive body weight; the knees provide support to the entire upper body and excessive pressure and strain can cause painful injuries. Patients who are overweight must adjust their lifestyle to include regular activity and a healthy diet in order to avoid further damage to the knees. A chiropractor can restore alignment to displaced structures in the knee and other linked structures that might also be affected by dysfunction in the knee, such as the hip or lower back. In some cases, in addition to regular adjustments, physical therapy is recommended for optimum results.
