KNEE PAIN

The knee is a hinge joint responsible for stability during movements of the body during weight bearing. The knee is held stable by its ligamentous attachments.

Injuries often occur during high impact activities such as rotation during excessive force, by abnormal stress due to poor muscle training patterns leading to weakness and instability and due to degenerative changes from years of excessive training.

Knee pain can be treated effectively by our chiropractor with the assistance of the massage therapists and podiatrist.
