Our chiropractors and physical therapists use different methods to treat knee pain. These include:
Chiropractic Treatment for Knee Pain
Chiropractic care involves sing non-invasive techniques to treat knee pain. It can serve as an alternative to painkillers or other prescription drugs that some patients use.
Spinal Adjustments – A misaligned spine can place added pressure on joints, such as your knees. With spinal adjustments, you can realign your bones and joints.
