Battlecreek Family Chiropractic Offers Treatment For Knee Pain
Knee pain is often a sign that the musculoskeletal system is not functioning as it should. Dysfunction in the spinal column can cause movement throughout the body that is out of balance and leads to strain and discomfort. Chiropractic can have a beneficial effect on knee pain that results from body imbalance. At Battlecreek Family Chiropractic in Battlecreek, MI, we can help restore physical balance and reduce joint pain.
Common Causes of Knee Pain
When the body is out of proper balance, strains and sprains of the knee joint can easily occur, even when engaging in normal activities. Tendinitis may develop, which causes inflammation and impairment of normal movement. The bursae that cushion movement in the knee joints can experience inflammation that is painful and can affect mobility. The kneecap can become dislocated, affecting normal function. Buckling of the knee can occur from weakened muscles. Knees can also become frozen, due to inflammation that affects ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. When the problems occur, your Battle Creek chiropractor can offer effective methods to relieve pain and improve function.
Chiropractic Treatments Can Relieve Knee Pain
Careful analysis of your physical function can help your chiropractor understand the underlying problems causing your pain and dysfunction. Dr. Casey can then design a care plan that focuses on specific areas of the body that are involved. Manual adjustment and other chiropractic techniques can re-align the spinal structures for more efficient body movement. The chiropractor may also use methods such as massage therapy that enhance the healing of soft tissues. Nutritional support can also aid healing, and ergonomic advice can prevent further injury of affected areas. Weight loss can help to relieve pressure on knee joints, and at Battlecreek Family Chiropractic, we can also provide advice and support for effective weight management.
