Knee Pain: Causes and Treatment
Are you struggling with knee pain? You're not alone. While knee pain is common, it can be incredibly painful. At Houma-Thibodaux Spine & Rehabilitation, our chiropractor is an expert in using holistic health chiropractic techniques to create lasting relief from knee pain.
Common Causes of Knee Pain
There are many different factors that can cause knee pain, ranging from overuse to acute injury. Our chiropractor believes in determining the root cause of your knee pain so that it can be attacked at the source. This means that we'll discuss your lifestyle, exercise, and nutrition habits, so that we can pinpoint what's causing your knee pain.
Overuse knee pain is common in people who participate in endurance sports, such as running, swimming, or even soccer and tennis. The tendons, ligaments, muscles, and bones in our joints can wear down with use over time, just like parts of a car. Acute injury can be caused by physical activity, or can be caused by an outside force, such as that of a fall or car accident. Our chiropractor will consider the cause of your knee pain before developing a personalized treatment plan for you.
Natural Knee Pain Treatment
Chiropractic care emphasizes treating patients as whole people, rather than as a collection of symptoms. After meeting with you, our chiropractor will create a plan that's personal to your needs and lifestyle. This plan may include spinal adjustments, stretching, medical massage, strengthening exercises, and lifestyle changes. When the body is out of alignment, it can cause pain throughout the joints. You may be surprised to learn that a misalignment in your spine or hips could actually be causing your knee pain! Nutrition can also be an important factor to consider. Food intolerances can cause inflammation that results in joint pain. Our chiropractor will consider these factors while developing your treatment plan. As you continue your chiropractic treatment, you and our chiropractor will revisit your treatment plan often. It's important to check in along the way to make adjustments to your treatment plan. If you experience any new pain, be sure to bring it up at your appointment.
