As we get older, knee pain is a regrettably common occurrence that, while not life threatening, can sharply decrease a person’s quality of life. Knee pain is commonly caused by muscle imbalances and structural misalignment around the hip, knee, and ankle joints brought on by poor posture, overuse & repetitive stress, and physical trauma. Whether you"re a professional athlete who knee has sustained a sudden, agonizing injury or a retired senior citizen struggling to enjoy your daily walks, knee pain can rob you of the life you love.
As Jacksonville FL chiropractors we take a comprehensive medical history and perform a thorough physical and biomechanical examination in order to make an accurate diagnosis – without an accurate diagnosis, the treatment will not be successful. Some common treatments include using ice to reduce inflammation around the joint and some soft tissue massage to help improve the knee’s range of motion. Additionally, when you begin using chiropractic adjustments this helps to oxygenate the blood in your nervous system, which boosts your body"s natural healing abilities.
