KNEE PAIN IN FRANKLIN
Our knees are some of the most mobile and frequently used joints in our bodies. This combination of frequency and mobility has led to a wide range of possible injuries and sources of pain. Sometimes people enter our office completely unaware of what caused their pain. Maybe it is a weekend warrior who overused the joint in an athletic competition, an unfortunate participant in a car accident, a person lifting too much weight at work or home, or a grandparent who just "overdid it" with the grandchildren. Typically, these situations cause almost an immediate pain or discomfort as a result of muscle, bone, or nervous system damage and irritation. Our Wellness Center of Franklin can help.
WHAT IS CAUSING MY KNEE PAIN?
Many people develop knee pain gradually over time, and are relatively unaware of what may have caused it. There are many possible causes including arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis and even some medications.
Due to the complexity of the joints and the vast number of possible causes, it is important that you see someone who is trained in these areas. Our team at Wellness Center of Franklin, LLC will use a detailed and complete approach to figure out what is causing your pain.
Typically, our office will use a combination of a thorough history, physical examination, and advanced imaging to get to the root cause of your problems. Experience allows our team to be able to use the location of the pain, aggravating or alleviating factors, type of pain sensation, and other symptoms such as swelling, skin changes, and bruising as other tools to assist in the diagnosis.
CAN CHIROPRACTIC HELP?
As with any condition, you want to start with treating the most common and typical cause of the pain and symptoms first. As described above, when bones or discs are out of position, and lose their ability to move properly, they often cause irritation to the surrounding tissues, including the nerves.
Many patients are surprised when they see that the nerves in our body travel from the spine all the way to the ends of our fingertips and toes. As a result, injuries to the vertebrae in the spine can create the sensation of pain anywhere along our arms and legs. Through treatment, patients at our clinic have experienced high levels of success through chiropractic treatment.
