San Jose Chiropractic Care for Knee Pain
Why resort to medications or surgery for knee pain when you may not have to? The licensed chiropractors at Mission Chiropractic are qualified to diagnose the underlying causes of knee pain and tailor a chiropractic care treatment plan to relieve pain and restore normal functioning. Whether due to a degenerative condition such as arthritis, or direct injury or trauma to the knee, when knee pain becomes a chronic problem that interferes with normal daily activities, our San Jose chiropractor provide thorough evaluations that not only include assessing the knee joint, but examination of related areas including the lower back, pelvis, hip, ankle and foot that may be contributing to your knee problems.
Evaluating Knee Problems
The knee is comprised of a complex and delicate interconnected system of bone, menisci, ligaments, cartilage, muscle and tendons. Injury, constricted muscles and joint degeneration contribute to knee problems that may manifest in the foot, ankle or hip. Chiropractic care for knee pain from our San Jose clinic is aimed at balancing each of these components and related areas to restore motion to the knee and eliminate pain. Chiropractic treatments that address knee pain include manual adjustments, myofascial release and various techniques of rehabilitation to treat common causes of knee problems.
The licensed chiropractors at our San Jose clinic treat a range of knee conditions that have arisen due to weak muscles, popping, clicking or swelling and inflammation of the knee. Visit a Mission Chiropractic chiropractor if:
- Knee pain is interfering with your everyday activities.
- Pain medications for knee pain are no longer effective.
- You have arthritis and symptoms and pain are progressively getting worse.
- You have been diagnosed with a meniscus tear and have found no relief with conventional treatment.
- You are a runner and have experienced consistent pain that is not relieved by stretching.
- Any problem related to chronic knee pain and knee problems.
Chiropractic Care for Knee Pain
Chiropractic care for knee pain relief may include a combination of several therapeutic techniques customized to address your specific concerns. Mission Chiropractic chiropractors provide:
Manual adjustments that are gentle and controlled and focused on relieving knee pain through balancing spinal joint misalignments in order to restore mobility and everyday functioning.
Myofascial release techniques address and relieve knee pain and the associated overworked muscles in the hips, legs and back. Mission Chiropractic chiropractors treat the soft tissues between muscles which are gently relaxed to improve function, restore mobility and facilitate natural healing.
Active release techniques offered at our San Jose clinic include targeted treatment of precise areas to release adhesions and scar tissue within the soft tissues and muscles that are frequently the cause of chronic pain in the knee. Active release techniques can also be effective for addressing ongoing problems with the meniscus, cited as one of the main causes behind chronic knee problems.
Special exercise and customized rehabilitative therapy instructions that can be carried out in the comfort of your own home are also part of a complete Mission Chiropractic chiropractic care plan tailored to help prevent knee pain from progressing into acute degenerative conditions.
