Knee pain can come on after an acute injury, or from chronic overuse of your knee joints. If you are struggling with knee pain, it is useful to seek a chiropractor’s expertise in holistic musculoskeletal care for relief. At Kingen Chiropractic Wellness Center in Brentwood, MO, Dr. Brenda L. Kingen, will assess what is going on to cause your knee pain, and come up with a treatment plan.
Knee Pain and Chiropractic
Your knees are complex joints, featuring a bone that doesn’t directly connect to other bones except through soft tissues, and there are a wide range of reasons why you may be experiencing knee pain. A chiropractor will assess the range of motion in your knees, and look to see whether they are in alignment. Misalignment in your back or hips can also be one cause of your knee pain, and a chiropractor looks over your spine, hips, and joints to come up with a treatment plan. With chiropractic care, you can improve the range of motion of your knees, rebuild their strength, and decrease knee pain.
What to Expect from Chiropractic Treatment
When you see a chiropractor for knee pain, you will likely attend sessions several times a week to get started. This allows you to strengthen your body, stretch, and get the care you need on a consistent basis. Chiropractic adjustments are common during treatment, hot or cold therapy may be used, and you may be taught exercises to do at home in between sessions. Dr. Kingen also provides acupuncture and Active Release Technique therapies to ensure that the knee’s soft tissues heal without scarring and are able to retain their flexibility. Chiropractic care is gentle, and does not use prescription medication for knee pain. As you begin to heal, you will start to taper down your visits. Eventually you can see a chiropractor once a month or so to maintain your progress with your knee pain relief.
