Reduce Knee Pain Without Drugs or Surgery


Knee pain can be debilitating. Getting up and down stairs, long walks, and even getting around the house can be difficult when your knees hurt. The cause of knee pain is often osteoarthritis or the degenerative changes of the joint. The pain associated with osteoarthritis of the knee is the number one cause of knee replacements worldwide. However, Chiropractic care may be able to help you regain mobility and get you back to performing the activities of daily living with less pain and without the need for drugs or surgery. 

Inside each of your knees, you have two primary surfaces (or condyles); one on the outside (or lateral) portion of the knee and one on the inside (the medial aspect). These are meant to glide and move freely with equally balanced forces much like the tires on your car. If they are not balanced, then one side is more likely to develop degenerative changes that can lead to osteoarthritis. Chiropractic adjustments can help restore the ideal alignment and balance. This reduces the wear and tear on your knees, can help reduce pain and inflammation, and improve their overall function.

- Osteoarthritis often causes knee pain.

- Improper alignment can contribute to degenerative changes.

- Adjustments have been found to improve the functional ability of the knee.

Join us for our next workshop where we will discuss how our practice has helped people just like you reduce their knee pain and get their life back!

  • "Cafe of Life Chiropractic Center were highly recommended to me by a few of my neighbors. I had some long time lower back and neck issues that were bothering me -- and it was just time to fix the problem. I signed up for a 2 month program -- and wow, the results are amazing. My neck is moving again, my lower back feels great, and other parts are that I didn’t know were stuck are moving again too! Cafe of Life is technology forward -- I love the scans of my back so that I can see the progress. They also have complimentary services like massage too. The team over at Cafe of Life is professional, fun and on top of their game. Scheduling is easy -- little to no waiting when I arrive for my adjustment. Love these guys!"
