Common Questions About Knee Pain Relief

Is pain in one or both of your knees interfering with your everyday activities? Our patients commonly complain about knee pain when bending to pick up an object, getting in and out of vehicles, or going up and down stairs at home or work. Knee pain is common, even if you never suffered a knee injury in the past. Our chiropractors at Idaho Chiropractic Group in Boise, ID can help you.

Doesn't a Chiropractor Only Work on the Spine?

Chiropractic care and treatment involves the entire body and the conditions that affect it. If a joint like the knee is swollen, a chiropractor can address the swelling. Then, he or she might be able to adjust the actual joint. There are numerous adjunctive therapies chiropractors use that might be able to help as well:

  • Ultrasound: Sound waves from ultrasound therapy work to massage muscles and tissues which in turn can reduce swelling.
  • Electrotherapy: Painless electrical impulses are used to stimulate muscles and tissues.
  • Myofascial Release: This involves manual pressure that is applied to stiff areas. When pressure is released during this therapy, tightness is relieved.
  • Icing: Ice has been used for hundreds of years to help reduce swelling and knee pain.

Can Chiropractic Manipulation Help Relieve Knee Pain?

There are many patients that suffer knee pain from spinal misalignments. This is due to the fact that the alignment of the spine affects the alignment of other joints in the body, including the knee. Spinal realignment operates to realign an affected knee too. Then, minor adjustments to that knee will enhance its functionality.
