Knee Pain

The knee is a complex joint that relies heavily on ligaments and muscles for stability. When pain is perceived as coming from the knee, all the anatomical components need to be examined and in addition to the knee joint, the low back, pelvis, hip, ankle and foot need to be examined due to the direct influence they have on the knee, and vice versa.

The chiropractic approach of assessing and treating the knee includes the evaluation of the other joints and muscles relating to the knee. A doctor of chiropractic would normally modify the treatment to suit each patient and their specific conditions. So the type of treatment that is most appropriate for one person is not necessarily right for another.

The three goals are to reduce joint inflammation and pain; get the knee joint functioning normally again; begin a program of exercise to increase range of motion and strengthen the knee.
