The knee acts as the secondary shock absorber of the body and consequently receives a high degree of impact. It is essential therefore to ensure that the knee functions properly to avoid injury to the rest of the leg and low back.
Knee injuries are often due to sport and general overuse, obesity or traumatic injuries such as a fall. Common injuries we treat at the clinic include:
- Anterior knee pain
- Patellofemoral pain syndrome
- Fascial problems – Iliotibial band syndrome
- Muscle strain
- Joint misalignment
- Osteoarthritis (chiropractic cannot cure arthritis but we can help ease your symptoms)
