Doing certain basic activities, such as climbing stairs, getting out of bed or walking can be greatly affected when suffering from knee pain, a very common symptom nowadays. If we consider that chiropractic is a therapy based on a combination of techniques to relieve knee pain, including spinal and lower extremity adjustments, this therapeutic option is very valid for those who want to manage this symptom from diagnosis to resolution.
Being one of the most common joints used from day to night, the knee is submitted to constant pressure. This means that, in susceptible individuals, especially those who have a sedentary lifestyle, have underlying medical conditions, do not eat correctly, or practice exhaustive training sessions and participate in aggressive sports events, one or both knees can develop an injury of one or more of its structural components, leading to diverse signs and symptoms, being the pain one of the most characteristics and frequent ones.
Of course, having a medical condition that produces pain can definitely reduce the quality of life of any patient and if other symptoms, such as joint swelling, stiffness, and crepitus are added, the patient may develop an impaired ability to walk, affecting the day-to-day life even more.
Having said this, conventional treatment options include taking anti-inflammatory medication (NSAIDs) and opioid pain drugs, plus injecting corticosteroids intra-articularly, while surgical procedures like arthroscopy are usually the next clinical decision to treat knee pain.
However, despite all of these therapeutic options and more, a significant number of patients still continue to suffer from pain, increasing joint alteration, dysfunction, and instability.
Considering these factors, we at Space City Pain Specialists are committed to providing preventative and regenerative care to patients suffering from knee pain through the expertise of professionals like Dr. Jeffery Cannella by applying certain techniques aimed principally to:
- Decrease and elimination of the inflammatory processes.
- Repair of the damaged articular tissue.
- Slow down and even stop the degenerative articular damage.
- Increase of blood flow to ensure the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the joint.
- Promotion of muscle mass preservation to secure the stability of the joint.
- Increase in the articular range of motion and stability.
If left untreated, knee pain can evolve into more serious conditions, which may end in knee replacement surgery and all of its uncomfortable side effects. This is why corresponding personalized therapeutic interventions, such as heat or ice therapy, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, among others, have to be performed at the earliest stages possible and by professionals to achieve the best outcomes.
