When the cartilage is damaged, painful symptoms can occur. In many cases, restoring correct mechanicsimproves joint function within its capabilities, and symptoms diminish or disappear.
Osteoarthritis or hip arthritis – See osteoarthritis.
Walk Analysis is one of our primary chiropractic analysis methods.
The knee is a fundamental joint for walking, which suffers from dysfunctions in the ankles, hip, and back. Byacting on the vertebral and non-vertebral subluxations, their correct mechanics are restored, and theirsymptoms are eliminated.
Leg pain can be caused by a trapped nerve, the most common being sciatica, muscle tightness such astrigger point, joint conditions or blood problems. Your Chiropractor will assess you and be able to tell you thebest course of action.
Patellofemoral pain syndrome
It is a pathology that manifests itself with pain in the patellar area. Sometimes called “runner’s knee,” it’s more common in people who participate in sports that involve running and jumping. A careful assessment of your biomechanics will be able to tell us where is the source of the problem and how to best ﬁx it.
Leg pain, weakness or numbness
Vascular or nerve problems can cause altered strength or sensation. If due to a compressed nerve, it can besuccessfully resolved through chiropractic.
