Knee pain chiropractic: Around 40 percent of running injuries are knee injuries. They fall under the general term of runner’s knee. This includes chondromalacia patellar, also referred to as patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFMS). Other knee injuries include iliotibial band syndrome and plica syndrome.
Rest and ice are common therapies, but when that doesn’t work or when pain and mobility issues come back, chiropractic is a tried and true treatment option. Structural issues that affect the knees are often very responsive to chiropractic treatment.
In chondromalacia patellae and other knee problems, it has proven to reduce pain and help improve the condition significantly, providing increased mobility and flexibility.
The knee is constructed to take the impact of the body’s weight when bending and moving. Under the knee is a layer of cartilage that is a natural shock absorber. Injury/s, overuse, aging, and other conditions can cause damage to the cartilage. The condition causes pain and impaired mobility, especially when walking up or downstairs. The pain can be reduced with rest and ice, but sometimes it’s not enough.
Common treatments include:
Common symptoms include pain at the front of the knee. It can be described as a dull ache deep in the knee.
This pain can be made worse when:
The more the knee is in use, the worse it is. Rest and ice work fairly quickly to help relieve the pain. But if the pain persists even with rest and ice, more aggressive treatment is the next step. Traditional doctors prescribe medication and surgery. But now, more individuals are gravitating to a drug-free, less invasive treatment, like chiropractic.
The exact cause of chondromalacia patellae is still unknown. The condition has been linked to several factors.
A person’s risk of developing chondromalacia patellae can increase based on certain criteria.
Chiropractic treatment for chondromalacia patellae includes nutritional intervention as well as adjustments, stretches, and exercises. The treatment is focused on stretching shortened hamstrings and adjusting the sacroiliac joint.
The aim is to improve the tracking of the kneecap and increase motor control. Soft tissue work can help individuals with knee pain. The whole-body approach that chiropractic provides goes beyond relief from knee pain but completely curing or reducing the condition.
There are plenty of reasons why. From:
Millions are now turning to chiropractic for natural healing, relief, and whole-body wellness. Lack of insurance and the number of treatments are two of the common reasons patients think it’s too expensive. Some may think the price could hinder their decision to seek chiropractic.
However, individuals need to understand the cost of other treatment options like medications and surgery, costing more than dollars with all the negative side effects. Here are three reasons to visit a chiropractor and the savings that come with it.
Chiropractic promotes optimal health through prevention that is increasingly attracting those striving to remain younger, longer. It promotes whole-body healing through spinal adjustments/joint manipulations to increase mobility and optimize the body’s performance. It decreases blood pressure and reduces the chance of headaches.
Avoiding these health issues saves tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills. Seeing a professional chiropractor enables a person to stay healthy and enjoy a more active lifestyle because their back, bones, and joints are optimal.
Millions of bodies are injured from a variety of mishaps and accidents.
Our backs, knees, ankles, hips, and feet take a beating. Chiropractic for injury/s is a wise choice as it promotes healing, decreases dependence on medications, and minimizes the chance of a recurrence. It also strengthens the other parts of the surrounding area of the body and not just the injured area. Treating injuries through chiropractic decreases money spent on expensive medicine and reduces time off work.
Many types of medical conditions are ongoing, with no cure in sight. Daily pain, loss of strength, and mobility are conditions that individuals power through and learn to live with when they don’t want to take medication and feel horrible continually. This is where chiropractic medicine can shine, as it’s all-natural. The aim is to get the body to react the way it is supposed to and heal itself.
The cost is minimal when measured against the rewards and benefits of increased mobility, decreased pain, and a fantastic quality of life. Dr. Jimenez will perform a thorough examination to determine the proper treatment for the given ailment/condition. We’re here to help! Give us a call.
