Knee Injury

Nichols Chiropractic Offers Help for Knee Injury Problems

Knee injuries can occur during a variety of activities and can even result from normal wear and tear. The pain can be either intermittent or chronic, and it can have a significant impact on your ability to perform work tasks or enjoy recreational activities. Conventional medicine offers many treatments for knee injuries, but these often involve strong pain medications, injections or surgery.

At Nichols Chiropractic, we can provide a drug-free, non-invasive method of treatment to reduce pain and improve movement.

Understanding Knee Pain

The knee joint is composed of bones, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments that function together to provide smooth movement and proper balance in a number of different positions. When any one part is injured, the function of the entire joint can be affected, placing additional stress on other structures in the knee. The knee can sustain a fracture, a dislocation, meniscal tears, ligament tears or tendon problems. Overuse, trauma to the knee joint and repetitive strains can cause knee problems.

n some cases, incorrect alignment of the spine can cause dysfunction in movement throughout the body that affects the knee. Simple bracing or strengthening exercises can resolve minor problems, but when chronic knee pain occurs, the individual may require more intensive care. Chiropractic techniques offer to relieve pain and improve function without surgical intervention and long recovery times.

Chiropractic Treatment of Knee Injuries

Chiropractic treatment involves re-aligning the spine to maximize proper movement throughout the body so that it can function together without placing a strain on single areas like the knee. Spinal adjustment helps to restore this normal alignment. Damage to soft tissues can be improved with cold and heat treatments, active release therapy, massage and corrective exercises. Cold laser can also be used to improve muscle and tendon problems. Kinesio taping can help to relieve inflammation and support tissues as they heal.

The chiropractic professionals at Nichols Chiropractic can provide these and other modalities to treat knee pain and dysfunction.
