Chiropractic for Knee Pain?

Surrey Pain & Wellness Chiropractic Clinic has several treatment options that are very effective for problems that cause knee pain

Acute Knee Injury

Acute injuries to the knee are usually the result of a trauma to the ligaments and cartilage through sports injury, accidents, and sometimes overuse:  ligament sprains, tears, meniscus and cartilage injuries, patella dislocations, chondromalacia (runner’s knee) osteoarthritis.  These kinds of  “mechanical” injury can result in knee instability or almost complete immobility in the affected leg.   These kinds of injury require a diagnosis to determine the extent of injury (usually requiring x-rays and an MRI) as well as  pain management and rehabilitation.

While severe injuries likely require surgery, minor or moderate injuries can avoid surgery thanks to a multi-modal approach used at Surrey Pain & Wellness Chiropractic Clinic.

Osteoarthritis

Another common cause of knee pain is osteoarthritis. While there is not a cure for osteoarthritis,  the symptoms can be reduced and the progression slowed or stopped with a range of treatments at Surrey Pain & Wellness Clinic.  Early treatment is also key to recovery so that inflamed joints do not progress from acute the acute phase to chronic.

As long as the knee joint does not become severely degenerated, surgery can be avoided.  Mild to moderate degeneration in the knee joint can be dealt with by strengthening the surrounding muscles to protect the joint from being vulnerable to continued injury or inflammation.

Pain reduction and managing inflammation is an important part of rehabilitation to keep strengthening and recovery moving forward.    Contact Surrey Pain & Wellness Chiropractic Clinic at 604.507.9929 or visit our website services to learn more about moving forward to recovery.

 

The R.I.C.E. treatment is important during the initial 48 hours of injury:  (Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation).

Rest

Reduce or stop activity for the first 48 hours.

Ice

Use an ice pack on the knee for 20 minutes at a time 4-10 times a day.  (Up to once an hour to reduce swelling and inflammation)

Compression

Wrap the knee in an elastic bandage or wear a support brace to reduce swelling and protect the injured area.

Elevation

Keep the leg elevated, using a stool or bench when sitting or a pillow when lying down.
