Chronic knee problems are not only frustrating–but life altering in some instances. Getting out of a chair, walking up or down stairs, enjoying a simple walk in the park–these easily become impossible when your knees are in a chronic state of disarray. And over time, the loss of these activities takes its toll on a person’s spirit and joy for living.
Healthy knees make the simple activities of your life joyful again.
If you’ve been told that you have bone-on-bone arthritis and need knee surgery then please keep reading.
At Chronic Conditions Chiropractic based in San Luis Obispo California, many of our patients have been told the same thing and are now walking pain free after completing our program. We blend both natural therapies and medical procedures to help our knee patients.
Every procedure we use is an effort to bring long lasting relief and ease of function back into your life. First, it is important to identify the true nature of your knee issue.
The knee does not work in isolation. Its connected to your ankle, hip, pelvis and lower back joints with a multitude of muscles and nerves operating across the knee joint.
Doctors call the area from your feet to your lower back the neurokinetic chain. The neurokinetic chain must be strong and properly aligned if you are going to get out of a chair and walk without pain.
Just like each link in a bicycle chain must work for the bike to operate, each link in the neurokinetic chain has to be healthy too.
You may feel grinding, popping, pain that causes your leg to give out or clicking when you move your knee which can mean you have a specific type of arthritis called Osteoarthritis. We will do a comprehensive evaluation of all nerve, muscle and joint function from your feet, ankles, knees, hips, pelvic and lower back.
Chronic knee pain is not normal or an expected part of aging.
There is a reason some people get bad knees and some don’t. After we have done a full evaluation we will let you know if you qualify for our knee program. If you do, your care program may consist of one or more of the following:
- Cold Laser Therapy.
- Knee, hip, ankle and pelvic alignments.
- Off loading knee bracing to keep the knee joint aligned between visits.
- Lower back non-surgical decompression.
- Knee decompression
If, after a thorough case review, we accept your case, our goal will be help you avoid surgery and provide long-term benefits to your life. We can often tremendously decrease or completely eliminate pain and improve stability and motion of your knee(s).
If for any reason we believe that your knee problem is too serious for this program to correct we will explain why and refer you to the proper professional.
