Chiropractic Treatment for Knee Pain Relief with our Scottsdale Chiropractor
Our knees do so much for us. When they are healthy and functioning well, we usually take them for granted. However, if one or both knees become injured, this can affect our quality of life dramatically.
Knee pain can be constant, intermittent, intense or more of a dull ache. Depending upon the injury type, knee pain can be associated with bruising and/or swelling in and around the knee area, or it can be very hard to discern visually.
Common Reasons Behind Knee Pain
The knees can become injured in a number of ways. Some of the most common causes of knee pain that your Tempe and Scottsdale chiropractor sees include:
- Athletic injury
- Overuse injury
- Improper form
- Bad ergonomics
- Gait issue
- Spinal/core imbalance
Knee Pain Treatment in Scottsdale
Knee pain is generally treated by icing the area regularly, reducing physical movement as much as possible and allowing the knee to heal on its own. However, if knee pain persists along with symptoms like swelling, stiffness and loss of mobility, there is likely a deeper issue that needs to be addressed.
Chiropractic diagnosis and treatment can find and treat the cause of your knee pain at the root and restore the balance that is required for true healing. The essence of chiropractic care is a gentle correction of imbalances in the musculoskeletal structure so that the body’s own natural healing abilities can take over. The process safely and gently restores harmony to all of the bodily components involved.
The main techniques employed by your Scottsdale chiropractor include:
- Chiropractic Manipulation
- Manual Adjustments
- Chiropractic Mobilization
- In-Office and At-Home Exercises
We can also implement the following modalities as appropriate:
- Koren Specific Technique (KST) (for analysis and correction of imbalances)
- Graston Sports Therapy (a handheld instrument to address adhesions and scar tissue)
- Cold Laser Therapy
- Massage Therapy
- Deep Tissue Therapeutic Massage
- Trigger Point Therapy
Chiropractic care is extremely effective in correcting spinal and joint misalignments to improve mobility and reduce pain. Restrictions to nerve functioning can be corrected to reduce strain and optimize the entire system.
In some cases, knee pain can be linked with a seemingly unrelated misalignment in the hips, ankles, spine or neck. Your Scottsdale chiropractor will check for these kinds of potential issues and address them so that rapid whole-body healing and pain relief are possible.
