Chiropractic Care for Knee Pain at O'Dell Family Chiropractic
For most people, knee pain is obvious. Sharp, stabbing pain that centers on the knee joint can cause you to stop in your tracks, unable to walk and enjoy normal activities. For others, the pain is more subtle, with a gentle ache more than a sharp, stabbing pain. Some patients may experience popping sensations when moving their knee, which can also indicate a potential problem. If you are experiencing any of these problems, you need to schedule an appointment with O’Dell Family Chiropractic to discuss chiropractic care for knee pain.
When most people think of chiropractic care, they picture a chiropractor cracking their back and neck. While gentle spinal alignment adjustments are a major part of what we do, at O’Dell Family Chiropractic, we also adjust other joints in the body. The knee, for instance, is a complex joint made up of many different bones, which can come out of alignment. When this happens, patients experience knee pain, inflammation and discomfort. Chiropractic care for knee pain can help.
Treating knee pain starts with a thorough evaluation of the knee to look for alignment issues. If our team finds an alignment problem, your chiropractor will use gentle alignment techniques to put the knee back in place. Then, we will evaluate other areas of the body, like the lower back and hips, that can contribute to knee pain and knee alignment issues. By treating your whole body, we can help reduce the likelihood of a future injury of the knee, so you will have fewer problems with knee pain in the future.
Does your knee pain warrant a call to the chiropractor? If your knee pain is not from an acute injury, it may be due to poor alignment of the knee. If the pain is significant enough that impairs your normal life, you need to seek treatment. You may be able to benefit from chiropractic care if:
