Knee Pain Got You Down?

Many people believe that chiropractic care is just about the back. However, at the Chiropractic Center of Kennesaw, we know that the back is only one area of the body. Dr. Supnick is experienced at treating the extremities of the bodies including major joints that carry the bulk of the body’s mass from day to day. One such joint is the knee. Just as living life with back pain is quite inhibiting, so is living life with knee pain.

Forms of Knee Pain

Two common forms of arthritis in the knees are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The decomposition of the cartilage around the knee is the cause of osteoarthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is associated with the swelling and inflammation of the knee joints.

Sports Injuries

Whether participating in team sports such as soccer, football, and hockey, or individual sports such as cycling and running, all athletes are at risk of injury. This is true across the board for professional and ameteur athletes. Common knee injuries plaguing athletes include cartilage damage, sprained or torn ligaments such as the ACL, and torn menisci.

Shifted Pain

Another cause of knee injury can come from pain elsewhere in the body. At the Chiropractic Center of Kennesaw, we have seen many patients over the year that have compensated for a foot injury, back injury, or knee injury by adjusting their walking pattern in order to reduce pain. Ultimately, when one is in so much pain that normal comfortable walking is not possible, the body is prone to sustain injury in areas that are not used to bearing the weight.

Dr. Supnick is an experienced chiropractor and fully capable when it comes to extremity treatments including knees. If you have found that alternatives such as pain killers are simply not releiving your knee pain, consider the power of chiropractic care. Contact us at 770-749-7594 today!
