Chiropractic Treatment for Knee Pain
One out of every four adults in America suffers from chronic knee pain. We here at Centennial Wellness Center in Las Vegas, NV, know a lot about knee pain and how to administer treatment.
Causes of Knee Pain
There are just about as many causes of knee pain as there are painful knees. Here are a few of the most common reasons:
- -Prolonged inactivity
- -Knee replacement failure
- -Improper stepping
Not Just a Knee Problem
Problems in other parts of the body can cause knee pain. Problems in a person’s leg and pelvis can affect strains, sprains, tears, or other mechanical problems in the knees. Our knees absorb a lot of force during daily use. With each step you take, your knees are pressured as if they have to carry a body one and half times your weight. Even a sore heel can place more force on the knees.
Chiropractic Care for Knee Pain
After a physical exam, our chiropractor may take X-rays. Our chiropractor has access to a variety of treatments to aid a variety of problems. Once a diagnosis has been made, our chiropractor with create a treatment plan tailored to suit your particular needs.
Spinal Adjustments for Knee Pain
We know how the different parts of the leg affect each other. Problems with the spine often cause problems in other parts of the body, like the knees. Providing treatment to the spine with spinal adjustments can greatly reduce knee pain.
Pain Relief Laser Therapy
Cold lasers, like the PL-touch or XLR8, provide pain relief in a non-invasive way without the need for drugs. Cold laser therapy is especially good for sports injuries and some types of arthritis.
Lifestyle and Nutritional Advice
Taking off excess weight and giving your body the nutrients it needs in order to heal are crucial to your wellness program. We will advise you on nutritional supplements, gentle exercises you can do at home, and better ways to sit, stand, and walk that will take stress off of your knees.
