Chiropractic treatment is the use of manipulation and mobilization techniques in the knee areas where movements are restricted. Many with pain in their knees report also having pain in their lower back and pelvis, which may be due to inflammation around the nerves connecting the knee to the spinal cord. Chiropractic adjustments for knee pain are not an invasive method for solving the problem of knee pain and stiffness. These treatments will also help release stubborn knots from tight or damaged muscles and tissues. When you visit with our chiropractor, you’ll get a full examination to understand what is causing your knee pain and what can be done about it.

In addition, these main causes of knee pain are supplemented by other aggravating factors. Rheumatoid arthritis causes the joint to become inflamed and can often cause destruction of the surrounding cartilage. Although the cause of knee pain is typically injury, there are many other causes. It is quite easy to damage the tendons, ligaments, meniscus (knee cartilage) and bones that comprise the knee, and this damage can take months to recover from. The Chiropractic adjustments involve gentle, well-ordered, and directed adjustments provided to your knee and spinal joints.
