Monday Morning Health Tip: Prevent Knee Injuries With Chiropractic

Prevent Knee Injuries With Chiropractic

Many researchers believe that the knee is the most complex joint in the human body.  It is also the most imperfect and easily injured.  However, Dr. Smith teaches patients how to keep knee joints in top form and ward off knee injuries with all-natural approaches.

Although not directly connected to the knees, misaligned spinal bones (vertebrae) can wreak havoc on body posture and spark a condition known as vertebral subluxation.

How do vertebral subluxations affect the knees?  Sacroiliac (SI) and lumbar (low-back) subluxations may affect hip and, in turn, leg alignment, making one leg “shorter” than the other.  This puts disproportionate strain on the entire lower body, including the knees.

Dr. Smith uses safe, all-natural maneuvers known as chiropractic adjustments to care for patients with this all-too-common condition.

Knee injuries also stem from sources such as:

  • ACL, MCL and meniscus problems
  • Hip misalignment
  • Osteoarthritis
  • “Knock knees” and “bow legs”
  • Osgood-Schlatter disease

If knee injury does strike, immediately follow the “RICE” protocol and call the office to schedule an appointment. Dr. Barbara Smith
