Knee Pain

Is knee pain interfering with your daily functions and medication doesn't seem to help? At Advanced Chiropractic, we treat pain by targeting the underlying injury or condition responsible for your symptoms. Our Klamath Falls chiropractor, Dr. James Yewchuk, will examine you and design a chiropractic care plan to help get you back on your feet.


The Common Causes of Knee Pain

The knee is a large hinge joint made up of the knee cap (patella), thigh bone (femur), and shin bone (tibia). The bones are held together by muscles, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage (meniscus). There is also the bursae which help to reduce friction and pain during movement. However, pain can develop from a sports injury or accident, health condition, overuse, heavy lifting, or being overweight. Pain can also result from excess pressure on the knee joint due to spinal misalignment, flat feet, or foot arch problems affecting your posture and gait.

Typical Symptoms

Telltale symptoms include a visibly deformed knee, dull, sharp, stabbing, or throbbing pain inside or around the knee, tenderness, or swelling. You may have difficulty straightening the knee or intense pain when you put pressure on the affected leg. You may hear a popping or grinding sound when flexing the knee or it may feel weak, unstable, or give out altogether.

Knee Conditions Treated with Chiropractic Care

The knee is quite strong, flexible, and capable of bearing a certain amount of weight without giving out. However, it is still susceptible to the following painful injuries or conditions that our chiropractor can treat:

  • Meniscus tears
  • Knee tendinitis
  • Broken or dislocated knee cap
  • Knee arthritis and bursitis
  • Frozen or "locked" knee
  • Iliotibial band syndrome
  • Strains and sprains from repetitive actions

Knee Pain Treatment in Klamath Falls

Our chiropractor uses an integrative treatment approach to provide lasting pain relief and make the knee stronger. Extremity adjustment of the knee is a non-surgical technique used to move dislocated bones and joints back into place. Repositioning the knee structures is a natural and effective pain-relief technique that also promotes long-term healing. Some patients may also benefit from spinal adjustments. The spinal joints are gently manipulated back into position to ease the pressure on the knee caused by physical imbalances.

We may add massage therapy or ultrasound therapy to your personalized treatment plan to speed up healing. Dr. Yewchuk may also recommend physical therapy or corrective exercises to strengthen the knee and increase your flexibility.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I've been going to Dr. Yewchuck for many years. He's always been able to get my stubborn neck and back aligned every time when other Chiropractors can't. I would trust Dr. James any time when it comes to my Chiropractic needs. He adjusted my neck 2 days after having surgery and was very careful getting me on and off the adjustment table. I now live in the Rogue Valley and anytime I'm in Klamath Falls and need an adjustment his office staff always gets me in within minutes of going to the office. Dr. James and his staff are very professional and caring about your individual needs. Can't wait to use his new equipment! I would recommend Advance Chiropractor to anyone."

  • "I don't know where I'd be if it hadn't been for James and his staff.....After a fatal MVA, he was able to find the injuries that neither the ER nor our doctor could at the time. He efficiently and effectively planned a course of action that got me back on the path of recovery. He's compassionate...he has knowledgeable, professional, and friendly staff. I'm proud to know him and the gals in his office.... He can certainly help you...I have no doubts about that."
