KNEE, LEG, AND JOINT PAIN
Sports injuries and sciatic nerve damage can cause pain in the knees and legs. Most patients end up undergoing surgery and then months of physical therapy and never even consider the all natural and non-invasive treatment options.
Chiropractic exercises, adjustment therapy, and conservative treatment can often solve many of these problems. Often long past injuries and trauma can cause joint, leg, knee and hip pain years later. Dr. Sakhai understands how to diagnose and treat most injuries that don't require surgery.
Alignment and decompression therapy are some of the treatment solutions we offer, but general exercise consulting as well as movement and posture therapy can help reduce the effects of your knee, leg, hip and joint pain.
The most commonly requested therapeutic procedure we preform is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The point of this procedure is to restore joint mobility by applying chiropractic controlled force into joints that have become stiff or restricted of movement, usually as a result of a tissue injury.
These injuries can be caused by improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stress on your spine and joints, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. The result is the same; your body can undergo physical and chemical changes that cause inflammation, pain, and reduced function. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected areas, can often restore mobility and alleviate pain and tightness which can allow tissues to heal.
Kinesio Tape® is the original and authentic elastic therapeutic tape, used by chiropractors, physical therapists and other licensed health professionals to treat a variety of muscle, joint and rehabilitative conditions. Kinesio Taping® Method is practiced worldwide and is respected and utilized by patients, athletes and therapists.
The product is a type of thin, elastic cotton tape that is claimed to be able to stretch up to 140% of its original length. As a result, if the tape is applied to a patient on a stretch greater than its normal length, it will "recoil" after being applied and therefore create a pulling force on the skin that it is being applied to. This elastic property allows much greater range of motion compared to traditional white athletic tape and can also be left on for long periods of time before reapplication.
Dr. Sakhai can not only apply athletic tape in this method, but can show you how to apply it yourself in the future. Make an appointment today to begin utilizing the latest method of sports and athletic support tape.
