Hip & Knee Pain
Knee pain and hip problems are some of the most common conditions people live with. These parts of the body are almost always in motion, support body weight, and keep our bodies balanced. This makes the hips and knees highly injury-prone and susceptible to conditions like sciatica, bursitis, arthritis, overuse, and accidental injury. As conditions worsen, mobility is adversely affected. Some knee and hip pain can be debilitating and will negatively impact the quality of your life. With good dietary habits, regular exercise, and routine chiropractic treatment, many types of pain can be reduced and more easily managed.
At Anderson Chiropractic, we have been sharing the benefits of chiropractic care with residents of McMurray, PA for many years. Our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your hip and knee pain before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it.
Chiropractic Solutions for Hip and Knee Pain
Many different factors can lead to joint inflammation. Sports injuries, overuse, and cumulative conditions contribute to inflammation in the joints, muscles, ligaments, and the surrounding connective tissues. Chiropractic care plays a part in helping to keep the joints and ligaments in a healthy state. Inflammation and pain can be reduced with regular chiropractic adjustments. Some common knee and hip conditions treated with chiropractic care include:
- Traumatic injury: Sudden impact traumas can be immediately debilitating. If you slip and fall or have been involved in an auto accident, the hips and knees can be broken while ligaments and surrounding tissues are strained and damaged. Chiropractic manipulations can help reduce inflammation and facilitate the body’s natural healing process.
- Sciatica: Irritation or pressure on the sciatic nerve is what leads to the condition known as sciatica. This painful condition affects the hips, legs, and lower back. Chiropractic treatment can alleviate the symptoms of sciatica and reduce the likelihood of the condition returning in the future.
- Arthritis: While this condition is most common in the elderly, it can affect anyone. Joint degeneration and rigid, stiff joints are hallmarks of arthritis. Chiropractic adjustments will relieve your pain and restore your range of motion.
