Dr. Troy here, the Vancouver chiropractor.
Ankle and knee pain are very common in our society. There are over a million knee replacements done a year, over two million hip replacements done a year. We know that if your knee is hurting you or your ankle is hurting you something is causing it.
It is very common to see inflammation in the joints which triggers pain, and if you don’t address the cause of it sooner than later it can actually turn into a big mess. We know if the pelvis or the spine get out of alignment, your pelvis rotates it will twerk your knee and it’s going to go all the way down to the ankle.
I have had so many patients come in with knee problems, we never touch their knees, we readjust the spine. It takes the torque and the tension out of the lower extremity joints and they feel and function better.
There could be some degeneration in there. I have met patients who have bone on bone knee issues but they have no knee pain. They did when they started because of the misalignment, extra inflammation and pressure that is being put on the joint.
We could get joints moving again through the adjustment process and through some of the techniques that we use in the office. Some techniques include the wobble chair, spinal molding blocks to help bring about stability. We put the spiine over the blocks to help open up the nerve roots which improves communication and adaptability of your body.
Come in, get checked and see if your hip, knee, ankle pain could be related to a joint misalignment. We’ve also found that quads could be tight, the hamstrings or calves. A lot of time we recommend foam rolling for people. Even adrenal fatigue can cause knee pain.
There are a lot of different causes and we want to figure out what causing your knee pain. So come in to get a consultation with us to determine if chiropractic can help you.
