Is knee pain taking the joy out of gardening or playing with the grand kids? We all agree: Pain is Bad. Do you find yourself avoiding the stairs and taking the elevator because of creaky knees? Are you taking more and more pain medicine just to get through the day?
Patients are often apprehensive to go to the chiropractor as they fear that dreaded first knee adjustment. Although they know they will likely experience relief of their knee pain, it is difficult to take the first step. At Action Spine & Joint, our spine doctors perform chiropractic adjustments on the knee using a low-force method that is gentle and does not hurt. Dr. Bearden attended the Palmer College of Chiropractic and has been trained on Palmer adjustment techniques. Only a small movement is needed to align the joint. To support the alignment and healing, we often prescribe a regiment that includes physical therapy exercises and sometimes intervals of ice to reduce both swelling and pain. to realign the joint.
Knee Replacement May Not be Required
If knee pain is diminishing your joy in living, let us help you. Television ads tell you that taking a simple pill will relieve all of your symptoms. But they don’t tell you about all the side effects of that medication that are often worse than the knee pain itself. Friends and neighbors tell you that you must have reached the age for knee replacement. But knee surgery is not a “given” as you grow older. Don’t let pain keep you from the activities that make life worth living.
Surprisingly, very few of our knee pain patients have come to us because of a sports injury or an accident.
Four Primary Sources of Knee Pain
• Arthritis (wear & tear)
• A knee surgery gone bad or re-injured
