If you spend a lot of time on your feet, have suffered a trauma from a fall or sports injury, or are suffering from arthritis, you are amongst the 20% percent of Americans who suffer from chronic knee pain.
One of the most common causes of knee pain is a tear or restricted motion of the meniscus. To improve muscle function and break-up the accumulation of scar tissue, the Drs. at The Center utilize the Active Release Technique (ART), which targets precise groups of muscles and soft tissue. The Drs. will also utilize basic knee and spine adjustments to improve performance and movement.
Knee pain can also stem from tired and tense muscles in the legs, hip and lower back. Through Myofascial Release (MFR) the soft tissues are relieved of pain and their maximum level of function is restored. This technique improves blood and lymphatic circulation and relaxes contracted muscles.
