Prevent Knee Pain With Chiropractic
By Krista Elliott
As we get older, we accept a certain number of aches and pains as inevitable parts of aging. Knee pain seems to be one of those things that we figure is just part of the deal, along with gray hair, a need for bifocals, and an unquenchable desire to watch Dr. Phil.
But what if I told you that maybe your knee pain isn't inevitable? That it can be treated, and even possibly prevented? And would you be shocked to know that the treatment involves more than just your knees?
Da Knee Bone's Connected to The ... Leg Bone!
All too often when we treat pain and dysfunction in a body part, we treat only that body part. Modern medicine has a bit of a weird tencency to look at each body part in isolation, instead of looking at the body as a series of interconnected systems with each part of the system affecting the other.
Your knees are no different in this regard.
The joints of the knees, and how they align, are highly dependent upon the positioning and alignment of the femur and the tibula, the large bones of the leg. As well, they can be yanked out of alignment if uneven muscular forces are present.
And those leg bones and muscles? They can be affected by the bones in your core frame, especially your pelvic girdle and your spine.
How Chiropractic Care Helps
When it comes to knee pain, you might have never thought of seeking out chiropractic care. After all, chiropractic is just for your back and neck, right?
There are two big reasons why chiropractic care could be the perfect treatment for your knee pain.
First of all, chiropractors don't treat only backs and necks. Chiropractic doctors, like the experts at The Joint Chiropractic, are well-versed when it comes to any and all joints in the human body. Their precise and gentle adjustments can be done on any joint, whether its in your spine or in your extremities.
And secondly, chiropractic doctors are experts at recognizing how all of your bones and muscles are interconnected. So if your knee pain is actually caused by a muscular imbalance which, in turn, is caused by a subluxation in your pelvis or lower back? They'll figure that out. And, they'll know how to treat your lower back in just the right way to ease those uneven forces on your knees, treating your pain's root causes, instead of just the pain itself.
So, if you have a knee (or hip, or ankle, or shoulder) that's giving you problems, stop by The Joint Chiropractic today, at any of their 350-plus nationwide locations. With treatment from The Joint, both your back bone and your knee bone will be feeling great.
