The knee joint is sturdy but the ligaments and tendons can cause instability if they become damaged. This type of pain can be caused from several different sources, including:
Knee pain can be mild which can be treated conservatively with a brace and anti-inflammatories. However, if the knee pain becomes too severe and limits your day-to-day activities you should seek professional care. Dr. Weddle can address any body imbalances that might be an indirect source of the knee pain. Once the diagnosis is complete there are several different treatment options available for pain relief that suits your specific needs. It should be noted that even if your symptoms are mild you should consult a qualified professional before beginning any type of treatment.
Everyone’s situation is different and as such treatment will vary. However, at DMC Healthcare, Dr. Weddle offers a wide variety of treatment options to relieve knee pain. When the body is out of alignment it can put undue stress and pressure on the knee joints. Chiropractic manipulation of the vertebrae can realign the body which alleviates pain and helps the body’s natural healing process. Dr. Weddle also offers rehabilitation therapy which entails an exercise program that can improve strength, endurance, and stability. If necessary, joint injections can be performed in office as an alternative or in combination with other treatments.
