Chiropractic techniques can be effective for leg and knee pain, as well as for back pain. These techniques have undergone scientific testing and validation over extended periods, proving to be as safe and effective for pain treatment as conventional surgery or prescription painkillers. It's significant to note that, in many cases, conventional medicine focuses on pain "management" rather than pain treatment because it often deals only with symptoms, neglecting the root causes.
Before initiating any treatment plan, a chiropractor begins by conducting a thorough screening of the patient, compiling a complete medical and lifestyle history to identify root causes of any problems. Once the screening is completed, your chiropractor will consult carefully with you to decide on the best and most effective treatment options that align with your healthcare goals. At Drassal Chiropractic & Sports Clinic in Shoreview, you are always in charge of your healthcare decisions.
Natural & Effective Pain Relief
In many cases of leg pain, chiropractic methods can provide substantial relief to the patient. Chiropractic adjustment of the joints, massages for the muscles and soft tissues, as well as heat or cold treatments, can all help bring significant relief in cases of tendonitis, muscle or fascia injuries, or meniscal damage. Chiropractors can also address pain arising from some cases of arthritis.
Osteoarthritis, resulting from joint deterioration, can sometimes be slowed or ameliorated by holistic or chiropractic methods. Rheumatoid arthritis, caused by inflammation, can sometimes be helped by addressing the cause of the inflammation. We can also assist with sports or accident injury rehabilitation and the pain treatment associated with those kinds of injuries.
Chiropractic medicine can also bring significant relief in cases of sciatica. Although the pain of sciatica appears in the legs, the root cause of the problem is often located in the lower back. Your spinal column is made up of vertebrae and discs, encasing the spinal cord, a nerve running from your neck to your hips.
As the spinal cord sends signals throughout the body, other nerves attach to it along its length. The sciatic nerve is one of these branches, attaching in your lower back before running off through your hips and into your legs. If the discs or bones near the sciatic nerve fall out of place, sciatic pain can appear. Chiropractic spinal adjustment can often relieve sciatica.
