Chiropractic Care for Knee & Ankle Pain

Knee & Ankle Pain

Are you Experiencing Knee & Ankle Pain?

At Chelsea Chiropractic & Wellness, we understand how knee and ankle pain can significantly impact your daily life. We’re here to create a tailored treatment plan to help you address and alleviate your knee and ankle pain and regain comfort and mobility.

Causes of Knee and Ankle Pain

Knee and ankle pain can be caused by various factors, ranging from overuse and minor injuries to more serious underlying conditions. Here are some common causes of knee and ankle pain:

Knee Pain Causes:

  • Osteoarthritis: This is a degenerative joint disease that occurs when the protective cartilage in the knee joint wears down over time, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility.
  • Knee Injuries: Various injuries, such as ligament tears (like ACL or MCL tears), meniscus tears, or fractures, can cause acute knee pain. 
  • Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (Runner’s Knee): This condition involves pain around the kneecap due to muscle imbalances or alignment issues.
  • Iliotibial Band Syndrome: An overuse injury that causes pain on the outer side of the knee due to inflammation of the iliotibial band, a thick band of tissue running down the outer thigh.
  • Bursitis: Inflammation of the bursa sac, which cushions the knee joint, can cause pain and swelling.
  • Patellar Tendonitis: Also known as jumper’s knee, this condition involves inflammation of the patellar tendon, leading to pain just below the kneecap.


Ankle Pain Causes:

  • Sprains and Strains: Overstretching or tearing of ligaments (sprains) or muscles/tendons (strains) around the ankle can lead to pain, swelling, and instability.
  • Achilles Tendonitis: Inflammation of the Achilles tendon which connects the calf muscles to the heel bone, resulting in pain and stiffness.
  • Plantar Fasciitis: Inflammation of the plantar fascia, a band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot, causing pain in the heel and arch.
  • Stress Fractures: Small cracks in the ankle bones, often caused by overuse or repetitive impact activities.

The Chiropractic Approach

Chiropractic care is a holistic and non-invasive approach to addressing knee and ankle pain and its underlying causes. Our team of chiropractors are experienced in assisting management of knee and ankle pain and knee and ankle-related injuries by performing adjustments to ensure that your symptoms and function improve.

Personalised Assessment and Treatment

We understand that each individual’s experience with knee and ankle pain is unique. Our highly trained chiropractors begin by conducting a comprehensive assessment to understand the root cause of your discomfort. This may involve discussing your medical history and lifestyle and conducting physical examinations or diagnostic tests if necessary.

Following the assessment, our chiropractors develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your needs. This plan may include a combination of chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapy, therapeutic exercises, and ergonomic recommendations. These treatments work together to alleviate pain, restore proper alignment and function, and enhance your body’s natural healing processes.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Knee and Ankle Pain

Chiropractic care can offer various benefits for individuals experiencing knee and ankle pain. While results may vary from person to person, many people find relief and improved functionality through chiropractic treatment. Here are some potential benefits of chiropractic care for knee and ankle pain:

  • Non-Invasive Approach: Chiropractic care focuses on non-surgical and non-pharmaceutical methods to alleviate pain and discomfort in the knee and ankle joints. This can be particularly appealing for individuals seeking natural pain relief options.
  • Pain Management: Chiropractic adjustments can help reduce pain in the knee and ankle joints by addressing misalignments, improving joint mobility, and reducing pressure on nerves.
  • Improved Joint Function: Chiropractic adjustments aim to restore proper joint alignment and movement. This can lead to an improved range of motion and functionality of the knee and ankle joints.
  • Muscle Balance and Strength: Chiropractors often work on correcting muscle imbalances contributing to joint pain. Strengthening and balancing the muscles around the knee and ankle joints can provide better support and stability.
  • Holistic Approach: Chiropractors take a holistic view of the body, considering how various systems and structures interact. They may address the affected joint and other related areas of the body that could contribute to the pain.
  • Individualised Treatment Plans: Chiropractors create personalised treatment plans tailored to the patient’s condition, medical history, and needs. This approach can lead to more effective outcomes.
  • Prevention of Recurrence: Chiropractic care aims to identify and address the underlying causes of knee and ankle pain. Doing so can help prevent the recurrence of pain in the future.
  • Short-Term and Long-Term Relief: While some individuals experience immediate relief after a chiropractic session, ongoing care can lead to longer-lasting benefits as the body responds and adjusts.
