Are you at risk for chronic knee pain?

Knees hurt? You're not alone. Chronic knee pain is thought to affect up to 25% of adults and can significantly limit both your mobility and quality of life.

Discover how to take your life back from chronic knee pain.

Bottom line:

Knees hurt? You're not alone. Chronic knee pain is thought to affect up to 25% of adults and can
significantly limit your mobility and quality of life.
Your knee is a hinge-joint that primarily moves back and forth (flexion and extension) and allows some
twisting or rotation.
Every step you take places stress and strain on your knees, so it's no surprise that trauma, misalignment,
and degenerative changes can all take their toll.

The cartilage in your knee is designed to last a lifetime if you take care of it.
Yes, knee pain may not be entirely preventable, but there are steps you can take to keep your knees as
healthy as possible.

Why it matters:

Did you know… for every pound you are overweight, your knee must absorb an extra 4 pounds of
pressure when you walk, run, or climb stairs.
That’s why watching your weight is at the top of the list.
Here are a few additional ways to keep your knees healthy and strong…
 Warm-up before exercising. Stretching your quadriceps and hamstrings before and after you
exercise is a smart way to reduce the chance of a flare-up of knee pain.
 Find adequate foot support. Every step you take transfers force from the bottom of your foot to
your knee. Therefore, your shoes should provide the support you need to keep your knees
healthy for at least 10,000 steps per day.
 Maintain a full range of motion. Ensuring your low back and hips are moving freely is essential to
overall knee health.

Next Steps:

It’s not uncommon for people with back issues to find themselves struggling with knee pain after limping
around for a few weeks.
Cases like that are just one of the many reasons we encourage our patients to be proactive with their
health.
The joints of your body should be surrounded by muscles that have a balance of strength and flexibility
through their full range of motion, allowing you to move well.
We encourage you to use the strategies above to help reduce your chances of knee pain.
And whether you’re already a patient or still thinking about that first visit, be sure to call our practice if
you’ve been living with knee pain or restricted motion.
We’re here to help you get out of pain and back to doing what you love, naturally.

THE DIVINE SPINE DIFFERENCE

THE DIVINE SPINE DIFFERENCE

Dr. Andrea has been a lifelong advocate of chiropractic care ever since she saw the difference it made in her younger sister’s life when she was just a child. After her sister was diagnosed with epilepsy and prescribed medication to treat the condition — which turned her into a shell of her former self — Andrea watched in amazement as chiropractic treatments stopped her sister’s seizures and negated her need for medication. From that moment on, Andrea knew she wanted to be a chiropractor so she could share the body’s amazing ability to heal itself with as many people as she can.
