Non-Surgical Treatment for Knee Pain at Total Wellness Center
Knee pain is a particularly cruel way of robbing active individuals of their favorite activities and lowering their overall quality of life. The good news is that you're not powerless against knee pain, nor do you necessarily have to resort to surgery or drugs for relief. Our Aurora chiropractor at Total Wellness Center can help you feel better through conservative healing modalities.
The Nature of Knee Pain
Knee pain can happen to anyone, for a variety of reasons. The most sudden and dramatic examples include acute strains, sprains, and dislocations sustained in a traumatic accident. While there's never any doubt about why your knee is hurting in such incidences, other causes of knee pain may be harder to pin down. Chronic knee pain can accumulate slowly, but surely. Runners whose bodies are off-balance, for instance, may be vulnerable to a painful form of kneecap instability known as runner's knee. Constant repetitive motions can over-stress tissues, leading to chronic muscle pain or tendinitis in the knee.
Degenerative disease, such as osteoarthritis, may take years to develop. In osteoarthritis, the cartilage within the knee deteriorates so that it no longer cushions the bone ends against friction. Another painful condition called rheumatoid arthritis can cause bouts of knee swelling and inflammation. Knee pain can even be referred from another part of your musculoskeletal system that is suffering from nerve impingement.
Holistic Healing Strategies from Our Aurora Chiropractor
Whatever the cause of your knee pain, you'll benefit from a thorough evaluation at Total Wellness Center. Our Aurora chiropractor, Dr. Geersen, can check not only your knee joint, but also your spinal alignment, to see whether your weight distribution might be off-balance. If a spinal subluxation is referring pain to your knee, our neurological scanning can help isolate the problem.
Most knee pain sufferers can obtain relief without becoming reliant on drugs or undergoing surgery. We offer such safe and effective healing techniques as:
- Extremity adjustments to improve the function of components within the knee joint
- Spinal adjustments to normalize your musculoskeletal alignment
- Acupuncture to ease your pain the natural way
- Laser therapy and massage therapy to soothe inflamed tissues and promote healing
