Knee Pain Treatment from Floro Chiropractic
Do you suffer from knee pain? Are you sick of taking medication to feel like a normal person? Knee pain can make life difficult, but the right treatment will help.
Sometimes, the easiest daily tasks, such as tying your shoes, picking something up, climbing stairs or even getting out of bed can be difficult with knee pain. You don't have to live with pain. With the right treatment, you can get back to regular daily activities and you can function like you want.
Causes of Knee Pain
Many things may have caused your knee pain. It could be from an old injury or even from a current injury if you're an active person. In addition, it may be caused by arthritis, bursitis or obesity. The cause will help your chiropractor diagnose the issue and alleviate the pain.
Chiropractic Care for Knee Pain
With chiropractic manipulation and other treatments, such as soft tissue massage, ultrasound or electrical stimulation your knee pain will be reduced and your range of motion will be increased.
Chiropractic Techniques Used to Treat Knee Pain
Chiropractors use many techniques to alleviate your pain and treat the knee injury. Some of the possible treatments include:
- Posture correction - Similar to spinal misalignment, posture correction can help to ensure there's less pressure on your joints and muscles. Your chiropractor can assess your posture and help to correct it where necessary.
- Spinal adjustment - With a spinal adjustment, your body's joints will have less pressure on them, including the knees. When your spine is misaligned, it causes an imbalance in the body and the joints. With a spinal adjustment, balance can be restored and the wear and tear on the body can be limited.
- Trigger point therapy - Using this technique a chiropractor can apply pressure to specific muscles surrounding the affected joint to reduce discomfort.
- Lifestyle & nutrition advice - Many chiropractors will also offer lifestyle and nutrition advice to help with knee pain. Fish oil and supplements for joint health can help to protect your knees, while diet changes can restore energy for exercise and help with weight management.

“My wife referred me to see Dr. Floro because of my knee and low back complaints. I’ve been a carpenter for 30 years and the heavy lifting has taken a toll on my body. I’ve noticed a huge improvement in the few weeks that I’ve been treating with Dr. Floro. I can kneel without knee pain for longer periods of time, and the overall stiffness and pain is so much better not only in my knee but in my back. I’m thrilled with Dr. Floro’s knowledge and positive personality. Thank you so much, Dr. Floro! I highly recommend your services. “
