In Grand Rapids, knee pain is a common condition that many people endure. There are many causes from slips, falls, injuries, accidents, and cumulative traumas. The muscles around the knee, the ligaments, and the meniscus are tissues that can be injured. By addressing the muscles and ligaments, relief and improved function can often be obtained. By combining chiropractic adjustments to the muscles, massage therapy, nutrition, stretching, and exercises, knee pain can often be helped. By using multiple therapies, the benefits are compounded and results are more likely to be obtained. A great tool to exercise the deep muscles is by utilizing a vibration plate. To aid in decompressing the joints, an inversion table is also a great tool. Nutritionally, glucosamine is another tool to help make the cartilage in your joints be more durable and healthy. Our Grand Rapids chiropractors have helped many people recover, be able to function better, and enjoy physical activities again. If you, or someone you know are suffering with knee pain, give one of our Grand Rapids chiropractic offices a call and get started on your path to recovery.
