Dr. Brian Dower Discusses Knee Pain Treatment
Are you suffering from chronic knee pain? Dr. Brian Dower of Toronto, Ontario is here to help you out. Below is more information about knee pain and how going to a chiropractor can help.
Common Causes of Knee Pain
There are several common causes of knee pain. These include dislocated knee, knee bursae, frozen knee, strains and sprains, and tendonitis. Keep reading for more information about some of these causes.
Sprains and strains are one of the common causes of knee pain. Ligaments are torn and stretched during a sprain. Symptoms of a sprain are swelling, pain, bruising, a pop in your joint, or restricted movement in the area of injury. A strain is when a tendon or muscle is stretched or torn. Symptoms of a strain include muscle spasms, pain, restricted movement, and swelling.
Tendonitis is where a tendon is inflamed or irritated. Another name for this is jumper's knee. A dislocated knee happens when bones are pushed out of place, causing pain and injury. Frozen knee is when the knee is unable to move as much as it should due to scarring, chronic inflammation, shrinking, and thickening of the area around the joint.
How Our Chiropractor Can Help Alleviate and Treat Knee Pain
There are a few ways our chiropractor, Dr. Dower, can help relieve your knee pain. Chiropractic adjustments, computer-assisted chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, and other treatments can help alleviate and lessen knee pain.
Chiropractic adjustments are a common way that chiropractors use to treat chronic pain in patients. Chiropractic treatments are used to realign the spine and neck, alleviating pain from those and other parts of the body. Acupuncture uses long, thin needles placed just under the skin to help bring the body back into balance and relieve areas of chronic pain.
Kinesio taping can help relieve pressure and pain from the knees by supporting the knee area. Pressure is taken off of nerves and other areas that are causing the pain.
Some or all of these treatments may be used to help us get rid of your knee pain. Come in for an initial appointment, so that we can diagnose you and start a treatment plan. Please contact us if you have any questions about our practice.
