Knee and Hip

Problems with the knee and hip can limit your mobility and reduce your performance in sports, at work or in daily living.
You may even experience pain while sitting or lying down, making it impossible to find relief. We can examine you to discover the source of the pain and recommend a course of treatment to improve your condition and mobility.

Some Common Knee Issues We Treat Are:

  • Knee joint mobility loss
  • MCL Ligament Tear
  • ACL Ligament Tear
  • Meniscus Tear
  • Tendonitis (Patelar) and other Inflammation Conditions (Plica Syndrome, etc.)
  • Repetitive Strain Conditions (Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome, etc.)
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis

Some Hip Ailments We Treat Include:

  • Bursitis
  • Iliopsoas Strain
  • Hip Nerve Conditions (Piriformis Syndrome)
  • Arthritis and Osteoarthritis

 

 

A common condition that we treat to alleviate pain is Osteoarthritis. This condition is a result of the cartilage being worn down between the joints. It can cause pain with your hips, knees, back, neck and other areas. A chiropractic adjustment can bring the spine into proper alignment, relieving pressure on the nervous system that causes the pain.

Another painful condition we treat is sciatica. When the sciatic nerve becomes irritated due to spinal subluxations, bulging disks or muscle spasms, you may experience pain or numbness in your lower back, hips and legs. We can diagnose and treat the cause of this painful condition.

If you are experiencing pain in your hip or knee area, it is best you book an appointment for a full examination and consultation. We can recommend a course of treatment or a combination of health therapies to treat the source of the pain. Sometimes corrective orthotics are indicated – since misalignment when walking or standing can put added pressure on the knees, hips and back.
