Knee Pain Chiropractic Doctor in Orlando

Knee Pain is common nowadays due to the fact that it is directly related to your low back and hip pains. Simple biomechanics have shown that the low back is straightly related to the hip, knees, ankles, feet, and vice versa. As you have noticed, the knees are right in the center of the equation, so any problems from the low back to the foot and from the foot to the low back can and will have negative effects on the knees. In addition, every pound overweight from our healthy weight put an extra 4 pounds of pressure on the knees. Chiropractic Care and a balanced lifestyle can go a long way when treating knee pain. Some of the knee problems that we usually treat at the office are the following:

Patellar Tendinitis

Patellar tendinitis is an injury to the tendon connecting your kneecap (patella) to your shinbone. The patellar tendon works with the muscles at the front of your thigh to extend your knee so that you can kick, run and jump. Patellar tendinitis is most common in athletes whose sports involve frequent jumping, like basketball and volleyball. We have noticed that even people who don’t participate in jumping sports can get patellar tendinitis. Treatment of patellar tendinitis begins with physical therapy to stretch and strengthen the muscles around the knee, passive therapy to reduce the inflammation, and adjustments to realign and provide proper movement to the bones that surround the knee.

Arthritis

Arthritis is a disease that causes pain, swelling, and stiffness in your joints. It can affect the largest and strongest joints in your body. It’s common in knees. Arthritis of the knee can be a serious and debilitating disease. Although there is no cure for knee arthritis, there are steps you can take that might ease your symptoms and potentially slow the progression of your disease. Here at Roach Family Wellness, we have the skills and knowledge that will provide those steps to take control of your arthritis once and for all.

Sprain/Strain

A knee strain occurs when a muscle or tendon is torn or stretched. The tendons are fibrous cords that connect muscles to bones. Ligaments connect the bones of your lower leg to the bones in your thigh together in your knee joints. A knee sprain/strain can happen by a direct injury to the knee, overuse, muscle weakness, reduced flexibility, and/or an unsupported running form. Sprains/Strains are very common, and we see them every day in our offices.

Foot Pain

Ankle sprains/strains are very common among athletes. Now you don’t have to be an athlete and still sometimes get a sprain/strain due to misstepping or the usual scenario of stepping over an unstable surface and getting your foot twisted. The faster you get treated for that foot sprain/strain, the better it will be its recovery, the longer you wait to get it treated, the harder and longer its recovery time will be. If you have had your feet sprained/strained or know of someone that has, send them our way, we would be glad to help them with a faster, more efficient, and effective recovery.
