Chiropractic Treatment for Knee and Foot Pain

Understanding Knee Pain

The knee is essentially a hinge-style joint, with strong connective tissues that permit back-and-forth motion but only limited lateral motion. A sports injury or other accident that places lateral stress on the knee can rupture ligaments or tear muscles. More commonly, however, knee pain occurs due to chronic problems such as arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, repetitive motion injuries, and abnormal tissue strain from an asymmetrical stance or gait (which in turn often results from a spinal misalignment). The more you weigh, the more strain and deterioration the knee joints may encounter.

Foot Pain and Its Causes

The foot contains many bones and joints, with a complex assembly of soft tissues that enable it to adapt to shifts in weight distribution as you move. Obesity, the wrong kind of footwear, alignment problems, and overuse of the feet can cause chronic strain conditions such as plantar fasciitis. The same spinal misalignment that can strain the knees can also strain the feet by throwing your kinetic chain off-kilter. At the same time, imbalances in your feet can throw off the alignment of your knees, hips, and lower back.

Chiropractic Care Can Restore Lower-Body Balance

Chiropractic adjustments can correct many of the imbalances that produce chronic knee and/or foot pain. Dr. Breure at AZ Spine Disc and Sport will first determine whether the pain originates in the knee or foot. If so, you may benefit from extremity adjustments to those specific structures. Abnormal foot arches may require customized orthotics to even out the weight distribution on the feet. If the pain actually stems from a spinal imbalance, you may need chiropractic adjustments to your lower back. Our team may also recommend exercises and other care to strengthen your postural support and keep your joints limber.
