Many people think that a chiropractor can only help with problems associated with back pain, but the scope of their practice goes far knee painbeyond that one area of the body. Chiropractic care is actually designed to be holistically helpful, changing the way the body's systems work together for optimal comfort and wellness. Dr. Scott Shaw of Shaw Chiropractic Center in Richmond, VA can show you how chiropractic medicine can help with knee pain.

What's causing my knee pain?

Sometimes the cause of your knee pain is obvious; slipping and falling on ice, for example. But many patients who visit their Richmond chiropractor with knee pain are dealing with classic "wear and tear." The knees help to support the majority of your body weight, so it's no wonder that they are subject to inflammation and mobility problems. Posture issues, improper footwear, or obesity can all manifest themselves in the form of chronic knee pain, which can be very frustrating, especially when medication or activity reduction doesn't bring you the relief you need to perform daily activities. Fortunately, that's where Dr. Shaw comes in!

How can a chiropractor help my knee pain?

After determining the cause of your knee pain, your Richmond chiropractor will work with you to devise a treatment plan that helps to restore motion and reduce the discomfort you're feeling. Many of our patients at Shaw Chiropractic Center respond well to a combination of treatment methods, which may include adjusting the joints around the knee, spinal manipulation to help redistribute the body's weight and pressure points, and physical therapy exercises to do at home between appointments.

To set up an evaluation for your knee pain or any other mobility issues you've been experiencing, contact Shaw Chiropractic Center in Richmond, VA today. We look forward to helping you achieve a whole-body approach to wellness!
