With today’s increasingly active society, the number of knee problems is increasing. Hence, knee pain is the most common musculoskeletal complaint among individuals of all ages. Knee pain has a wide variety of specific causes including: Injuries(Knee bursitis, Patellar tendinitis, ACL injury, Fractures), Mechanical problems(Iliotibial band syndrome, Dislocated kneecap, Hip or foot pain, Scar tissue formation), and arthritis.
Dr. Lee utilizes Functional Improvement Techniques(FIT )™ which helps relieve tight muscles and trigger points, greatly reducing knee joint stress or muscular pains and make it more stable by stretching and strengthening the muscles around your knee as follows: on the front of your thigh (quadriceps and adductors), the muscles in the back of your thigh (hamstrings), and the muscles in the back of your lower leg (gastrocnemius, soleus, popliteus, and plantaris).
Chiropractic manipulation can also realign the body which alleviates pain and helps the body’s natural healing process. Therapeutic Exercise can help restore and build strength, endurance, flexibility, balance, and stability of the knee joint and the body.
As another option, arch supports, orthotic insoles, and heel pads can help to shift pressure away from the side of the knee most affected by osteoarthritis.
