Causes of Knee Pain
Knee pain can be a result of a car accident, sports injury, or any number of other events. Athletes, though, are often at greater risk for this type of pain because of the strain and stress they put on their knees. Regular sports activities and training often push the body to extremes. This can take a toll on the tissues of the knee. The knee is made of bone, muscle, and tendons. If any one part of this system is injured, it can cause ongoing knee pain. When left untreated, knee injuries can become a permanent physical problem.
Our chiropractor can provide you with treatments to alleviate knee pain and speed recovery from injuries. Knee adjustments can help in instances when the knee is out of joint. This can happen during sports if you experience a hard fall or impact.
Another treatment options is hot/cold therapy. This can reduce swelling and inflammation if the tendons of the knee are sprained or the knee has just been overused.
In some cases, cold laser therapy can be used to help speed the healing of torn ligaments that result from sports injuries.
Athletic Performance Enhancement
In addition to sports injury treatment, we also provide athletic performance enhancement treatments. These types of treatments are intended to keep your body in top shape while you are training and playing. Treatments such as massage therapy and spinal adjustments are often used.
Spinal adjustments are beneficial to athletes because sports participation will often shift the spine out of alignment. Spinal adjustment will realign the spine and increase energy and stamina.
Massage therapy is helpful for relieving sore muscles and keeping muscles long and loose. When muscles are conditioned this way, they recover faster from training sessions and are less at risk for injury.
