Knee Pain Treatment
Knee pain can be caused by dysfunction to the knee joint. Often times, this dysfunction stems from an original cause of low back or pelvic issues.
These skeletal issues can cause improper strain on the knee joints as you walk, resulting in knee pain. Chiropractic care can treat your knee pain without any surgery or drugs.
