Your knee is a vital joint for your mobility. When you are in pain, you need a chiropractor in Newark, DE. Dr. Matthew DeFroda of reNu Medical & Injury Center offers treatments and therapies that can help with your knee pain. Depending on the cause of your knee pain, you may require exercise, diet, adjustment, massage, or soft tissue therapy. A personalized program will be designed for you and your pain.
It is important for the health of your knees that your muscles are strong and flexible. The chiropractor will recommend stretching and strength training exercises to help get and keep your knees healthy and pain-free. This allows you to continue your therapy when you are at home between visits.
Your weight is vital to help reduce the pain in your knees. The more you weigh, the more pressure is placed on the knee joint. Reaching and maintaining a healthy weight can improve the future health of your knees. Your chiropractor offers diet and nutrition counseling.
Massage therapy can help with muscle pains and spasms that can contribute to the pain you are feeling in your knee. Getting a deep tissue or relaxation massage both have their place depending on what is causing your knee pain.
Getting an adjustment of the knee joint can help get things back into alignment. It can be done manually or with instruments for a gentler, more controlled form of adjustment.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy uses light to treat pain in the soft tissue and joints. It decreases inflammation and thus reduces pain. Healing is accelerated by cold laser therapy as well. The laser causes the release of endorphins, which are your own body's natural pain reliever.
Ultrasound therapy uses light waves to heat and vibrates the soft tissue, which helps to speed up recovery time at the cellular level. You won't feel any heat from the therapy as it is provided by your chiropractor in Newark, DE.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are painful knots that form in the fascia and can affect the nerves in the area. Trigger point injections can help with pain and can last for up to a month. They are part of the integrated healthcare approach we provide.
