Knee Pain Q & A
What are the possible causes of knee pain?
Some of the most common causes of knee pain include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
- Knee dislocation
- Meniscus tear
- Torn ligament
How do chiropractors treat knee pain differently?
The chiropractors at Maragal Medical treat knee pain differently. We apply chiropractic manipulation and mobilization techniques on the knee to affect the range of motion in the knee as well as surrounding joints. These techniques help reduce pain, swelling, and discomfort across your knee structure. The combination of methods can help reduce pain while simultaneously increasing range of motion in the joint and improving its overall function.
What knee pain treatments are available?
Several chiropractic treatments may be beneficial to patients with back pain. Depending on your needs, we may recommend:
- Corrective exercises you can do at home to improve the effectiveness of general chiropractic care
- Regenerative medicine to help heal the body using its own cells
- Physiotherapy, such as interferential electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and massage therapy
- Lifestyle advice to help you resolve any lifestyle issues that make your pain worse
What are the risks of chiropractic care for knee pain?
Chiropractic care is considered generally safe for patients with knee pain. Unlike conventional medicine treatments, which often come with significant risks and uncomfortable side effects, chiropractic care is unlikely to cause any serious problems.
Furthermore, studies have shown that chiropractic care is effective in the treatment of most types of knee pain, making it an ideal choice for patients who want to minimize risks and relieve their pain quickly.
