Knee Problems

Knee problems are another common injury outside of back pain. Knee issues arise as a result of:
knee pain treatment in Tecumseh

  • Overuse of the knee joint
  • Injury
  • Arthritic changes in the joint

Symptoms of knee injuries include: moderate to severe pain, swelling, and dysfunction of the knee.

Your chiropractor will perform a physical examination to identify the cause of the knee pain. Additional testing such as X-rays, blood work, and blood pressure measurements of the leg may be needed to  pinpoint the source of the pain.

If you are diagnosed with overuse of your knee joint, the treatment goal will be to reestablish balance of the muscles, restore  movement, and correct any misalignments. A brace can be used to reestablish alignment in the patella and knee joint.

If you have knee problems as a result of injury, then your chiropractor may recommend medication and/or physical therapy along  with healthy lifestyle changes to prevent future occurrences. Knee pain as a result of arthritic changes in the joint is generally treated with anti-inflammatory medications along with lifestyle changes to reduce pain.

If you suffer from knee pain, please contact our office to schedule an appointment with one of our chiropractors today. If you live in or around Tecumseh, we will gladly answer any of your questions and provide you with the best treatment options available to you.
