Knee pain is extremely common and not surprises being the largest joint in the body. Our knees take their fair share of impact throughout our lives.
CAUSES OF KNEE PAIN
The knee is often susceptible to referred pain. Such pain can be from pinched nerves in the lumbar spine of the back that innervates the knee. Other referred pain can be from an imbalance in the hips, or even pronation in the foot causing excess strain in the knee joint.
Bi-lateral knee pain, a condition in which both the left and right knee are hurting is often from chronic inflammation or excessive weight. Excessive weight will put extra strain on the knee joints and can cause them to be painful. Inflammation from dietary choices can lead to this and is reversible by eliminating foods that are highly inflammatory. Our proprietary TYB-12 system is a great choice for both inflammation and weight loss.
A torn meniscus or ligament can also be an underlying reason for knee pain. These tears can often be diagnosed with an orthopedic test, but can only be truly diagnosed with an MRI. While an x-ray is a great diagnostic tool to assess the spacing in the knee, an MRI is a gold standard to get a look at the soft tissue. The inner two-thirds of the knee is avascular, meaning it does not get blood supply. This portion of the knee is most prone to wear out and responds best to regenerative medicine.

Our Treatment options for Knee Pain
Chiropractic care can range from injury treatment to injury prevention. We focus on the prevention, diagnosis, and care of the spine and other joints.
Radial Pulse Wave Therapy
Radial Pulse Wave Therapy uses ultrasound technology to send radial pulse waves into the tissue causing it to break up scar tissue and increase blood flow to allow the treatment area to heal itself, naturally.
Oxygen Therapy helps to deliver oxygen from a mask which increases oxygen to your lungs and more to your blood. This helps the body accelerate healing at a metabolic level.
Orthotics are prescription devices worn inside your shoe to correct issues and conditions. Orthotics help with pain, posture, and much more.
Electric Stimulation Therapy
Electric Stimulation Therapy targets the muscles in the treatment area. It sends a current into the muscle that ultimately helps it to relax and treat inflammation and irritation. Electric Stimulation Therapy is not a painful treatment and is extremely effective. Typical Treatments are 10 minutes.
Exercises and Stretches
Exercises and Stretches are a great way to improve posture and range of motion as well as decrease back pain and prevent injury while decreasing muscle soreness.
An Extraspinal Manipulation is when a licensed Chiropractor adjusts a bone that is not one of the 33 in your spine. This could include wrist, ankle, fingers, toes, knees, elbows, ribs, even ears!
Warm Infrared Laser Therapy is a great low-risk technique to treat chronic pain. It reduces inflammation and promotes healing and pain relief.
Decompression is a non-surgical and non-invasive therapy that can help reduce back, neck, leg and arm pain. It works by reducing the pressure on the discs and joints.
