Your Premier Chiropractor for Knee Pain & Injury Treatment in Melbourne
Knee pain can be both debilitating and disheartening. We are on our feet for so many activities – be it for work, or for leisure activities that we enjoy. If we are limited in these aspects of life by knee pain, it’s important to know what can be done about it.
Knee pain can be the result of a number of things, including arthritis, acute injury (sprain or strain), lingering pain from a previous injury, referred pain from another area, overuse, or improper movement (among other causes).
The muscles, joints and ligaments keep the knee stable and guide it through correct movement. If there is any weakness in these structures, the knee may not have adequate support while moving. This may lead to a feeling of weakness during movement, or stiffness after movement. These symptoms can be indicators of a knee problem, and indeed precursors to pain.
If you’re experiencing knee pain or stiffness, recovering from a knee injury, or even want to strengthen your knees to protect from future injury, it’s important that you consult an allied health professional sooner rather than later.
Treating pain associated with knee injuries
It’s common for people to see a Chiropractor for knee pain or injury. Manual therapy is effective in relieving musculoskeletal pain (muscle and joint pain), by reducing muscle tightness and joint stiffness. This allows the joint to move correctly, which often brings relief from pain.
With precise spinal alignments and other low-risk treatments that complement the primary chiropractic treatment plan, we hope to potentially mitigate or eliminate your localised knee pain naturally.
A Chiropractor will assess your knee, but also the surrounding joints – ankle, hip, lower back. Knee pain can often be a side effect of a problem in these areas.
If muscles around your knee (or hip, ankle or lower back) need strengthening, your Chiropractor will prescribe rehabilitation exercises to be performed at home or in the gym.
There are a variety of treatment options when treating knee pain. A thorough assessment is key to knowing which methods are appropriate, and therefore create a personalised and effective management plan. Combining multiple treatment methods often gets the best results for the patient.
