The knee is a complicated, weight-bearing joint that can experience pain for several reasons. The most basic daily activities, like grocery shopping, climbing the stairs, walking to your job, or just getting out of bed, can become difficult when experiencing knee pain. Knee pain can hurt your ability to function normally throughout the day. The great thing is, you don't have to live with the pain or take dangerous pain medication.
At our San Ramon office, we get a full overview of the causes of your symptoms. We generally start with a physical inspection (including the knee joint, low back, pelvis, hip angle, and feet) and look at your full medical history to determine when your symptoms began. Knee pain can be caused by a condition somewhere else in the body, like the lower back and hips. Also, if the joints in your body are not correctly aligned, the knee joint tends to help your body compensate for those structural changes, resulting in injury over time.
Once we understand the cause of your knee pain, our chiropractors will put together a plan tailored to your needs. Some conventional treatments for knee pain include using ice to reduce inflammation around the joint, as well as soft tissue massage, which can help improve your knee's range of motion. We use these techniques with chiropractic manipulation in areas of restricted movement in the knee and the surrounding joints. These methods can help reduce knee pain, increase range of motion in the joint, and improve your knee's overall function.
