Knee pain: what can chiropractic do?
Whether it occurs after an injury or not, knee pain can have a variety of causes. In some cases, the pain can be treated at home with a few simple reflexes. If the pain is very acute or lasts a long time, chiropractor consultation becomes the only option.
How to relieve knee pain?
To relieve knee pain, the first instinct is to put the minimum weight and pressure on the joint. This is, for example, to avoid standing for a long time. It is also recommended to apply cold for twenty minutes every three hours. If the pain does not subside within a few days, then a specialist should be consulted.
Knee pain without prior injury
Pain and stiffness in both knees, slight swelling, especially in older people, suggests osteoarthritis. If the knee feels warm and red, and bends or tenders painfully, it may be bursitis or synovium effusion. Finally, if the knee is red and hot, the pain is intense and sudden, it is possibly gout.
The diagnosis of knee pain
The questioning of the patient makes it possible to identify whether or not the pain is the result of an injury, even a slight one. The physical examination makes it possible to inspect the knee: is it swollen, painful, sensitive, hot, does it present bruises? Are knee movements possible? If so, are they painful? In different situations, the use of medical imaging is essential.

Is chiropractic suitable for my child or during my pregnancy?
For kids :
Treatment techniques are suitable for children. They will be different depending on their age, height and weight. I don’t use manipulations until I’m 11.
For pregnant women:
Chiropractic is recommended for pregnant women. It helps relieve pregnancy-related pain, as well as relaxes the muscles of the pelvis. This allows your baby to have more room in your belly and therefore to develop and position themselves better.
I use a chiropractic table that adapts to your body and gentle techniques to relieve your pain or muscle tension. During the consultation I will show you exercises to do alone or in pairs to relax your back.
The frequency of consultations varies according to your needs.
For a so-called “normal” pregnancy without pain, it is recommended to consult once per trimester.
