Knee Pain Q&A

When should I see a chiropractor for knee pain?

If you feel that knee pain has limited your ability to accomplish daily life activities in any way, you should see a chiropractor promptly.

When evaluating and treating knee pain at Foundation of Health Chiropractic Center, your chiropractor assesses and evaluates all the joints and muscles related to the knee. They also examine areas that may be causing referred pain, such as a misaligned spine.

Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even prevent sports injuries and other types of injury, such as misalignment and improper use. Proper alignment is essential for whole-body wellness and can help people achieve total health.

Can a misaligned spine cause knee pain?

Signs of spine misalignment might occur in the hips and be felt as referred pain, which is pain that radiates to other areas, like the knees. If you notice that your knee hurts and seems to be coming from your hip or vice versa, a misaligned spine could be the cause.

If you’re experiencing signs and symptoms of misalignment and knee pain, schedule a visit to Foundation of Health Chiropractic Center. Your provider can assess your spinal health, knee alignment, and posture.

Can a chiropractor fix a locked knee?

Locked knee, sometimes called frozen knee, occurs when the knee will not straighten completely. This can happen when the kneecap is out of alignment and often responds very well to chiropractic adjustments.

How does a chiropractor treat knee pain?

Many areas of the body impact how knees feel and react. Your provider considers all of these factors when creating a customized treatment plan. 

Treatment for knee pain includes the following goals:

  • Reducing joint inflammation
  • Minimizing pain
  • Normalizing joint function
  • Rehabilitating the knee

Apart from helping to reduce the pain, your chiropractor can examine the physical anatomy of the knee joint and create a highly accurate plan for you. If you are experiencing pain in other areas besides the knee, they can include this in your treatment as well.
