The Doctors at West Coast Wellness Have Proven Protocols And Non-Surgical Treatment Programs That Are Used To Avoid Expensive Surgeries.
West Coast Wellness provides a wide variety of pain management options for patients suffering from knee pain. Knee pain can begin as a slight annoyance but if not treated properly it can turn into more serious health issues. It is not only distracting but can be physically limiting in all areas of life. Although incredibly complex and sturdy, the knee is more prone to injury than any other bony structure in your body besides your spine.
Knee Pain Causes
Knee Pain is the most common musculoskeletal complaint that brings people to the North Port chiropractic offices of West Coast Clinic. With today’s increasingly active society, the number of knee problems is constantly increasing. Some common contributing factors for knee pain are:
- Auto accidents
- Physically demanding jobs
- Standing for long periods of time
- Recreational sports
- Being overweight
- Repetitive strain
Patients whose knee injures are not treated properly can experience chronic knee problems. If the condition goes untreated it can cause muscular imbalances in the body, due to the body trying to compensate for unnatural movement patterns, which can lead to other pain conditions, such as hip and lower back pain.
Knee Pain Symptoms:
- Swelling and redness around the knee joint
- Crunching or popping sound in the knee
- Weakness in the knee or loss of stability
- Pain during movement
- Loss of range of motion
When Should I Get Chiropractic Treatment For Knee Pain?
The knee is a complex joint that relies heavily on ligaments and muscles for stability. When pain is perceived as coming from the knee, all the anatomical components need to be examined, and in addition to the knee joint, the low back, pelvis, hip, ankle, and foot need to be examined due to the direct influence they have on the knee, and vice versa.
Our approach to assessing and treating the knee includes the evaluation of the other joints and muscles relating to the knee.
Knee Pain Relief Without Drugs and Surgery
If you go to an orthopedic surgeon for knee pain, you will often be prescribed medication to help with pain, or surgery. That’s what they are trained to do. But chiropractors are trained to find the root cause of knee pain, which all too often is related to another joint, like the ankle or hip. Nothing will fix the knee unless all of the problems relating to the knee problem are found and fixed. That’s why chiropractic treatment should be your first stop to end knee pain.
Avoid often unsuccessful surgery and side effects of medication that don’t eliminate the problem. Make Dr. Barr & West Coast Wellness your first choice for knee injury recovery.
