Knee & Hip pain can severely limit your lifestyle making it difficult to stand and walk, thus affecting everyday activities such as walking around at work, shopping, household duties and exercise. If left untreated it can eventually lead to problems in other areas of the body including lower back pain. These joints are quite complex and pain may be caused by several different factors.
For treatment for knee & hip pain to be successful it is critical that the practitioner get the diagnosis right.
Initially, it is important to put ice, not heat (with a tea towel or something similar between you and the ice pack), and then seek advice from a chiropractor. With in depth training in lower limb biomechanics (including orthotics) we are ideally placed to help solve your knee and hip pains. The treatment could be manipulation, work on the muscles, orthotics, rehabilitative exercises or dry needling (a form of acupuncture).
