Knee pain and injuries are common issues that affect just about everyone at some point. They can be caused by different things, including age, sports activities, repeated stress on and around the knee, and others. Knee issues can be quite serious and negatively impact your quality of life. If you live in or around Lyndhurst or Paterson and suffer from knee pain, contact Dr. Harris at The Spine Institute of New Jersey to schedule an appointment.

What Knee Injuries Can A Chiropractor Treat?

Chiropractors specialize in different types of injuries, including the following knee injuries:

Torn meniscus – The meniscus is a C-shaped pad of cartilage that functions as a shock absorber. There are two menisci in each knee. You can tear the meniscus if you rotate or twist while putting your weight on the knee.

Knee bursitis – This injury is known as inflammation, irritation, or damage to a small fluid-filled sac in the knee. It is characterized by pain and a limited range of motion.

Frozen knee – This is another painful condition, one of the main symptoms of which is “locking” of the joint. This injury is usually caused by chronic inflammation.

Dislocated knee – It is caused by a joint disruption between the femur and tibia. Even though it is a rare type of injury, it can cause damage to the ligaments, blood vessels, and nerves.

Sprains and strains – Overuse of knee joints often lead to sprains and strains. The symptoms are swelling, pain, and reduced mobility.

Chiropractic Care

Our chiropractor will develop a customized treatment plan for your knee issue. One of the first things we will do is to reduce your inflammation and swelling. The next step is restoring the function of the knee joint. We may use different chiropractic methods for that, including manual manipulation, massage, and deep tissue treatment.
