If you’ve seen one or more health care providers for chronic knee pain but are still in pain, support from a chiropractic acupuncturist is an excellent care choice.
Generally, medical providers offer a limited range of options for managing knee pain. You may be prescribed painkillers or anti-inflammatories, offered injections for pain relief, or referred you for physical therapy. Depending on your condition, you may be advised to undergo surgery to relieve your discomfort and improve your mobility.
Unfortunately, painkillers often carry serious health risks or side effects. They are not a solution; they do nothing to help improve the state of your health. Physiotherapy can help in some cases, but it may not be very helpful or provide long-term relief. Surgery is an invasive procedure that comes with a lot of risk, a lot of recovery, and may not help in the long run. It is understandable that a person may be hesitant to consider more medications, therapies, or invasive procedures when the care they have received has repeatedly failed.
Chiropractic acupuncture treatment is a different type of health care that is often successful in helping patients with knee pain, even when other types of care have failed. A chiropractic acupuncturist takes a holistic approach to helping patients. This means they don’t focus exclusively on one area of complaint, such as a sore knee. Comprehensive care includes a full neurological exam as well as necessary x-rays to examine the condition of the knee.
Chiropractic acupuncturists view the body as a whole. The systems and organs of the body interact; health is a product of the function of various parts of the body acting (or not acting) together. Dysfunctions, deficiencies, or imbalances in one organ or system can contribute to problems in another seemingly unrelated area. For example, your main complaint may be knee pain. But often people with chronic knee pain also suffer from hip, back or foot pain. These are not “unrelated” when the body and your health are considered holistically.
Through careful, methodical, and thorough testing, a chiropractic acupuncturist will learn a lot about your overall health. Any dysfunction or deficiency affecting your state of mind will be identified. It is then possible to develop a healing strategy for knee pain as well as any other health issue that needs attention. When your health is addressed holistically, you will experience faster healing and start feeling better much faster than if knee pain was treated on its own.
Chiropractic acupuncturist care does not involve drugs or painful therapeutic techniques. Instead, you can expect to benefit from safe, natural, and non-invasive healing therapies that include state-of-the-art technology. Many patients with chronic knee pain find that they feel better and achieve greater mobility within a few visits. State-of-the-art technology and therapy programs are highly effective, risk-free, and have been shown to help patients with knee pain even when other types of therapy or medical support have failed.
God bless America and all of our troops. In good health !
