The knee is the largest joint in the body, located between the femur, patella and tibia. The end of each bone is covered with a protective layer of cartilage, which allows the knee to bend and straighten without friction. In a standing position, knees hold the bulk of our body weight, absorb impact and are very flexible, allowing us to climb stairs, bend down and perform other daily activities. Yet, one overextension could lead to a sprain, strain or dislocation. Chiropractic care is a natural way to relieve knee discomfort, so patients can continue their favorite activities.

Sports-Related Injury

At The Chiropractic Health Center of Glastonbury, our doctors are well-versed in sports injury and work with many local athletes. When someone has suffered a knee injury on the playing field, we adjust the joints to reset proper alignment and increase flexibility. We’ll also prescribe a series home exercises to help the athlete regain strength and mobility in the knee, coupled with a proper nutrition plan to reduce inflammation.

Other Causes of Knee Pain

In addition to sports injury, other common knee problems include mechanical problems, such as misalignment, muscular imbalance or tightness, and arthritis. Degenerative arthritis occurs when the cartilage that cushions the major leg bones experiences wear and tear. Bone exposure leads to friction, spurs and chronic pain that interferes with everyday life.

Chiropractic Treatment

For those with knee pain who have not experienced a sports injury, we may assess different areas of the body that are critical to knee function, including the lumbar spine. The central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord, so when nerves in the spine become irritated, the resulting pain may travel down the entire body. A similar sensation would be the pain and numbness patterns associated with sciatica, which runs from hip to foot.

Gentle adjustments and other mobilization techniques increase range of motion and release tissues that may be pinched or caught between the bones.

Not only this, but my appointments are always quick, yet very efficient. The doctors take their time in addressing my questions and explaining things so that I receive the best possible care."

"I started my chiropractic journey a few weeks before having my 3rd baby. They were amazing, patient and gentle during the pregnancy. They weren't pushy when I took my time, post pregnancy, to come back. They were amazing with my schedule and did everything to work with me. I felt so comfortable with them that I brought my new born baby and my 3 year old in to get adjusted!"

Corey M.
"I started going to Dr. D when my orthopedic doctor recommended him for whiplash. I had always been skeptical of chiro services, but Dr. D and his associates are wonderful. They've kept me pain free for years now, as I have monthly adjustments to ensure good health now and in the future. I highly recommend Dr. D."
Maureen W.
"Dr DeFrancesco is the best. I can’t say enough good things about him. He is a genuine and caring person. It is his help that has allowed me to continue to go to work every day and provide for my family. The staff is always super accommodating and pleasant to deal with. I have never received an attitude. When Dr DeFrancesco is not available, I am fortunate that he leaves me in the talented hands of Dr Wade and Dr LeFavor."

"I'm a very active individual and lower back pain was getting in the way of activities I love. While my back is still a work in progress, the time spent with Dr. D has been well worth it. I just ran 2 marathons in 2 weeks and these sessions helped me run these races with no back pain."
