At Chiropractic & Rehabilitation of South Florida a detailed examination of the knee, including orthopedic testing, will help to pinpoint the cause of your symptoms. In some cases, X-ray or MRI studies would be obtained to help arrive at an accurate diagnosis. Whether your knee pain is chronic or acute, or as the result of a sprain/strain injury, many knee conditions respond very well to the conservative treatment of chiropractic care. Pain and swelling in the knee can be reduced with the aid of physiotherapy, physical therapy, and manipulation/mobilization techniques. In addition, strengthening and stretching key muscles around the knee can speed healing, create better joint stability, and prevent relapse. Chiropractic care is not restricted to the spine, and it can be very effective for treatment of the knee and other extremity joints of the body. If it is determined that your condition is more severe and you are not a good candidate for conservative care, an appropriate referral will be made.
