Origins of Knee Pain
Some of the most popular causes of knee pain include, but are not limited to:
Sprains and Strains
We specifically work with our clients to identify the root cause of their knee pain, so that the proper treatment plans and osteopathic techniques can be leveraged to help them return to normal.
Treating Your Knee Pain
At MK Osteopathy, we use a number of different osteopathic techniques to treat and help you manage your knee pain.
More specifically, our osteopathic techniques are designed to relieve pain and improve joint mobility by manipulating the muscles and joints around the knee and others required areas of the body, thus working out any kinks, malformations, or other abnormalities. Furthermore, the use of osteopathy ultimately reduces inflammation and improves muscles balance, mobility and flexibility so that you can become active again and reduce your risk of further injury.
In addition, at MK Osteopathy, we understand that each person's experience with knee pain is different, so ultimately a holistic approach to treatment is what is needed to support your physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
