Treatment of pain from the knee
In Manhattan, where there’s always a lot of walking to be done, knee pain ranks right up there with chronic back and neck problems. Knee joints sustain the brunt of wear and tear because asphalt and cement have no cushioning. Chiropractic care and physical therapy can be extremely beneficial in helping to alleviate the pain caused by problems with your knees.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
Chiropractic care specializes in creating balance and alignment in the musculoskeletal structure. Through diagnostic x-rays and a manual examination, we can pinpoint the source of your knee pain. Instead of temporary painkillers, we focus on achieving long-term relief.
Pain experienced in different parts of the knee
- Ligament Injuries – Anterior Cruciate Ligaments (ACL), Posterior Cruciate Ligaments (PCL), Collateral Ligaments (MCL & LCL).
- Tendinitis – caused by inflammation around the knee joint or from overuse of the tendons which control knee movement.
- Runner’s Knee (Chondromalacia or Patella Femoral Syndrome) – the femur bone experiences friction with the knee cap due to muscle imbalance or overuse.
- Iliotibial Band Syndrome – a ligament running between knee and hip that becomes tight and inflamed.
