Why Does Knee Pain Occur?

With everything ranging from arthritis to fractures, a torn meniscus, ACL injuries, and so much more, joints and knees are easily subject to pain. You may find that the only way that you can get relief from pain is rest.
Aside from pain, you may also be experiencing swelling, stiffness, limited range of motion.
When is Chiropractic Treatment Needed?
Fortunately, chiropractic treatment can provide you with a non-invasive solution to your lower back problems. If you suffer from limited mobility, have constant pain, and/or periods of severe muscle spasms, you could benefit from Dr. Clayman’s professional chiropractic services.

Spinal manipulation, or spinal adjustment, aims to correct the position of your spine so that the irritability or surrounding nerves is reduced. By relieving the nerves of your lower back from this pressure, you may find that your pain is reduced and your mobility is restored. Massage therapy, neuromuscular re-education, rehabilitative therapy, intersegmental traction and at home stretching and strengthening programs are often also incorporated into treatment protocol to provide a holistic approach to healing.

Admittedly, it can be a little intimidating to go to your first adjustment if you don’t know what to expect.
