Rehabilitation and Pain Management for Knee and Leg Pain
Knee and leg pain are very common in our society as they are caused by regular, everyday situations: slips, falls, jerks, sports injuries, direct trauma, twisting injuries, work-related kneeling injuries, sprains, and strains. Knee pain is a common musculoskeletal problem in all types of people. Knees are complex structures that require all of their components to work properly for optimal function. They are mostly subject to stress from sports activity, overtime wear of the cartilage pads, and arthritis. Leg pain can often be associated with problems with your low back.
Every year, over 100,000 Americans undergo knee surgery in an attempt to alleviate the pain they suffer. However, studies have shown that surgery can be avoided with natural and conservative treatments, such as chiropractic. By choosing chiropractic for your knee and leg pain, you are choosing a non-invasive treatment, which is safe, gentle, comprehensive, and effective.
Carlsbad chiropractor Dr. Larry Dahl will take time to find the root source of your pain in order to assess the best treatment for your knee and leg pain. He will conduct a thorough examination of your muscles, ligaments, joints, posture, and gait, and will discuss past injuries and lifestyle habits that may be contributing to your condition.
Patients who receive chiropractic knee adjustments are mostly likely to experience significant drops in pain intensity and less clicking and grinding sensations. Chiropractic treatment helps improve performance of daily tasks with enhanced mobility without the side effects caused by invasive treatments.
Dr. Dahl can assist you in restoring normal joint alignment and gait, reducing inflammation, and finding the appropriate activities to promote flexibility and mobility.
