Customized knee pain treatment
Since no patient is exactly like another, we will customize the treatment to their individual needs. Store-bought treatment will only result in temporary relief. While resting the knee and applying ice can be beneficial for minor injuries, it will not be enough for more serious injuries. Benefits of our treatment include:
Some people do not realize just how important the knee joint is. The knee connects the thigh bone and shin bone together while also containing tendons that connect the knee bone to leg muscles. This helps the knee to move and function normally. Damaging a specific area of the knee can result in varying levels of pain and difficulty with mobility.
Seek early treatment
Even serious knee injuries or conditions can start out mild before worsening over time. Patients may not realize the full extent of a knee injury right away. In the cases of minor injuries, there is potential for the condition to get worse if the patient continues to place strain on the knee and does not seek treatment. Symptoms and signs that a patient may need to seek knee pain treatment include:
By seeking chiropractic treatment as early as possible after the accident, we will be able to help prevent the condition from getting worse and hindering the patient’s quality of life. Even if it seems the pain may be starting to go away, it is important to seek a professional evaluation. In many cases, pain in the knee is only the symptoms of a worse condition.
Knee pain treatment
In order to customize an individual patient’s knee pain treatment, we will need to review the patient’s medical history while also examining the functions of the knee the patient can complete. Various tests can include X-rays, checking for visible swelling and tenderness or measure the patient’s ability to move the leg in different directions. We may also apply various amounts of manual force on the knee in order to measure the integrity of its structure.
Once we determine the extent of the damage and the source of the injury, we will customize the treatment to meet the patient’s needs. While we may prescribe medication, it will typically be in combination with other treatment methods. One way to help encourage recovery in the knee is to strengthen the muscles around the knee.
We can recommend specific therapies and exercises the patient completes at home while also conducting physical rehab treatment sessions at our wellness center. We can also help patients who are physically active or on a sports team begin the healing process toward being able to participate in the sport again. We may also directly inject medication into the knee in order to reduce symptoms and improve mobility.
