Suffering From Knee Pain? 5 Questions to Ask Your Chiropractor, High Point, North Carolina

Chronic knee pain can make the simplest activities difficult. There are many treatments to explore, and visiting a chiropractor makes a significant difference. To get the best care, it’s important to know what to ask when visiting a chiropractor, as knee pain can develop from a number of conditions.

What to Ask Your Chiropractor if You Suffer From Knee Pain

1. What’s the Cause?

knee painThe knee is one of the most complex joints in the body. Knee pain can develop from several injuries and conditions, and treatment begins by pinpointing the issue. Thoroughly explain what you experience, as well as activities that cause pain; this will help the chiropractor diagnose the source.

2. Can Chiropractic Adjustments Help?

Lingering knee pain often develops from tendon and ligament inflammation. At your exam, a chiropractor may perform adjustments depending on your condition. This includes muscle massages and ligament realignments to help stabilize your knee and increase function. The process may take several visits, so discuss a treatment plan with your chiropractor.

3. How Can I Treat Pain at Home?

There’s nothing more tried and true than the RICE method (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) when it comes to at-home treatments. Icing your knees can reduce swelling and pain, while compression wraps provide support and keep swelling down. Discuss the amount of rest you need and how to properly elevate your knee with your chiropractor.

4. What Stretches Can Help?

At-home stretches are a beneficial treatment for minor pains. Knee, hamstring, and quadricep stretches reduce stiffness that causes discomfort while strengthening muscles and tendons. Ask your chiropractor about building a regimen and how to properly do each exercise.

5. Is Surgery Necessary?

If your knee pain results from a significant injury such as a ligament tear or meniscus damage, you may need surgery. Chiropractors can assess the extent of the injury and explain surgical options for short- and long-term remedies. At your next visit, ask if surgery is something to explore, as a chiropractor can recommend specialists to consult.
