Treat Knee Pain with Chiropractic Therapy
Dealing with chronic or sudden onset knee pain can be debilitating and can put a damper on completing many everyday activities. Walking from one room to the next, bending down to pick up items, or simply getting out of bed can be a daunting task when you are experiencing knee discomfort. Luckily, you do not have to live with knee pain forever and medication can be tucked away with proper therapy from a licensed chiropractor. Here is a bit of insight on the benefits of utilizing chiropractic therapy to address both common and uncommon knee issues.
If your knee pain isn’t derived from an acute injury, a chiropractic consultation can start you on the journey to healing and relief. When it comes to therapeutic treatment options, CHIROFIT will assign an individually planned routine to ensure optimal results. If joints and other areas surrounding the knee are causing restricted movement alongside the pain, we can implement innovative mobilization techniques to increase range of motion in the affected areas. Reducing inflammation around the joints and soft tissues is often the focal point of restoration in the knees. Often times, we’ll evaluate other areas of the body that are connected to the knee to check for proper alignment and added pressure that may be contributing to the pain you are experiencing.
Ligament injuries, arthritis, cartilage injuries, and other medical problems like tendonitis or Osgood-Schlatter Disease can cause repeated stress on the tibia and yield tears in the ligaments of the knee. Sports and strenuous activities like lifting, work, or exercise can trigger onset knee pain in children and adults alike. Since the knee relies primarily on its ligaments and muscles for proper performance, all components of the body need to be considered. Dr. Maniscalco will assess and plan for a specific form of treatment post-evaluation that not only ensures progression in the knee but directly affected body parts like the hip, lower-back, and pelvis area.
The benefits you can expect from chiropractic care present themselves almost immediately after the first session, yet restoring the knee to its initial functions can take multiple sessions with your provider. Soft tissue healing through interferential therapy and technology like ultrasounds can alleviate pain from several ligaments and muscles. Dr. Maniscalco will help to reduce swelling and inflammation through ice therapy, mobility routines, and chiropractic manipulation. As a result, patients will begin to see restored mobility, feel less pain, and experience fewer muscle spasms within hours of their first session.
In some cases, you may be presented with added therapy and rehab techniques to further improve your results. Dr. Maniscalco will present you with an exact treatment plan for your specific injury, whether it’s exercise therapy, strength training to improve the supporting muscles, or a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic care may be just right for you. It is best to schedule an initial consultation immediately to begin treatment and gain lasting relief to your knee ailments through a personalized plan!
