When you experience knee pain, you may not be aware that a chiropractor can provide assistance in alleviating your pain. At Enhanced Living Chiropractic in Greer, Inman, Simpsonville, and Travelers Rest, our team is dedicated to diagnosing and treating knee pain, among other conditions.
Do I need to take medication to treat my knee pain?
Medication is not a part of chiropractic care. When you choose chiropractic care, you opt for a holistic approach. The core belief is that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself when all systems are functioning optimally. This is at the heart of the treatment offered by chiropractors.
Can a chiropractor help with knee pain?
A chiropractor can use extremity adjustment techniques to realign your knee and restore proper alignment. This can help correct your walking pattern and reduce the pressure on your knee. While chiropractic care cannot cure arthritis, realigning the knee can prevent the progression of osteoarthritis. Additionally, spinal adjustments can address posture issues that impact the knees.
What if I experience muscle pain around my knee?
If you are experiencing muscle pain around your knee, a therapeutic massage can help alleviate some of the trigger points contributing to your knee pain. Muscle pain also responds well to stretching and strengthening exercises that specifically target the muscles causing the issue.
What can I do at home to manage knee pain?
If you have recently injured your knee and suspect a strain or sprain, it is advisable to apply ice immediately and continue using it intermittently as needed. Take weight off your feet and allow your knee to rest for optimal healing.
