Have you started feeling pain in your knees? Are you developing arthritis that causes pain in your joints and makes it hard to easily move due to the pain?
At Fraum Center for Restorative Health, we recognize that knee pain treatment must focus on your situation and we provide the care you need to address the causes of your pain.
What Causes Knee Pain?
When you want to address knee pain, you must start with understanding the causes of the discomfort. You also want to identify the severity of the damage or injury to your knee. When a chiropractor in our clinic has an idea of the severity of your pain and the cause of the discomfort, we can determine an appropriate treatment plan to address the situation.
Common factors that may contribute to knee pain or cause the discomfort include:
- Arthritis in the joints
- Injuries from sports, a car accident or any other incident
- An ACL tear, or a tear to any ligament in the knee
- Fractures or broken bones
- Inflammation in the tendons
- Injuries to the muscles surrounding the knee

How Chiropractic Care Helps with Knee Pain
Chiropractic care in our clinic helps with knee pain by using an array of treatments and strategies for your body’s specific needs. We may use chiropractic adjustments to improve the alignment of your bones, joints and tissues for better function and proper healing. When your body is not in proper alignment, it may cause inappropriate responses and inflammation. Our adjustments improve the function of your nervous system and allow your body to function at optimal levels.
We may use infrared laser treatments or other alternative solutions to address specific symptoms. We also recognize that you may have compression, or pressure, on your nerves that contribute to the pain in your joints. Our decompression therapy helps reduce excess pressure on the nerves. Each individual has different needs and goals when seeking treatment for knee pain, so we develop a personalized treatment plan to address your specific concerns.
