Combining Chiropractic & Rehabilitation To Determine The Underlying Cause Of Your Knee Pain

Your chiropractor near you or doctor will do a complete and thorough history and evaluation to determine the cause of your knee pain. If after discussing your history we think it is something chiropractic can help

We will move forward to a complete orthopedic, neurological and postural evaluation of all the joints of your leg including your ankle, foot, knee, hip and lower back. 

Very commonly restricted sacro-iliac joints effect the normal joint mechanics. Sometimes pinched nerves in your lower back cause weakness in the muscles supporting your knees. Pronation and supination can be a cause of knee pain. There are many underlying causes of knee pain.
