Knee pain comes to people of all ages and from all walks of life. It is an area of the body that often takes the most abuse when you work out or gain weight. From athletes, to people who are on their feet for long shifts, to pregnant women who have extra weight to carry around, and even children who grow too fast, we see many people complaining about knee pain that limits their ability to move freely and often causes enough pain for them to seek assistance. We can help you with your knee pain, no matter the cause, at Peterson Chiropractic. We serve West Valley, UT, and the surrounding areas.
Frequently Asked Questions about Knee Pain
- What could be causing my knee pain? If your knee pain was not caused by an injury such as a dislocated knee or strains and sprains, the cause may be osteoarthritis, knee bursitis, frozen knee syndrome, a rotator cuff injury, or tendinitis. The first thing we will do is diagnose the cause in order to heal you from there.
- What will a chiropractor do for my knee pain? First and foremost, we will find out the actual cause of the pain, because we are not going to just mask your pain. We will try to heal it fully so you can recover symptom free. Depending on the cause, we will come up with a treatment plan for healing that will likely include therapeutic massage, chiropractic alignment, hot/cold therapy, physical therapy, and sometimes referral to a surgeon if needed.
- What are some things I can do at home to help heal? It depends on the original cause of the pain. Often times at home therapies will include rest, stretching, and exercise, or some combination thereof.
