Some people assume that taking an over-the-counter pain reliever is the best way to treat their knee pain. However, this usually does more harm than good. While pain-relieving medication may offer temporary relief of your knee pain, it can damage your liver in the long run when used over time.
Chiropractic treatment offers a safer and more effective way to relieve knee pain. Through visual observation as well as X-rays, a professional chiropractor will first determine the cause of your knee pain. Next, he or she will recommend treatment.
Treatment options for knee pain varies depending on the underlying cause. If osteoarthritis is causing your knee pain, your chiropractor may recommend daily exercises to strengthen the muscles and supporting structures.
A professional chiropractor can also provide you with a knee brace to mobilize your problematic knee and protect it from further injury. This is particularly useful if inflammation is contributing to your pain. A brace will mobilize your knee to reduce stress on its structures.
