Knee & Hip Pain Relief in East Brunswick

person with knee painWe see patients of all ages who come in with various types of knee and hip injuries. Knee pain can be due to arthritis or a traumatically induced injury, such as a sports injury or a fall. Hip pain is a common complaint caused by various problems. The medical route to treating knee and hip pain often includes drugs, shots or surgery. We offer a different approach.

Expressive Care vs. Suppressing Symptoms

Many people these days recognize that instead of treating the symptoms and suppressing them through drugs, shots or surgery, it makes more sense to choose expressive care. Instead of suppressing symptoms, such as knee and hip pain, we’re allowing the body to express better function and improved health by removing the interferences to peak health expression.

It’s All About Subluxation

Most people with knee and hip pain have misaligned vertebrae in the spine, irritating nerves, causing imbalanced energy flow to the knees and hips. This is called vertebral subluxation complex or subluxation. Subluxations interfere with your body’s capacity to self heal and express optimum function and optimum health.

Adjusting the subluxation and removing the interference allows your body to express closer to its optimum levels of physical, mental, and social well-being. That well-being includes your ability to heal, move, be more resistant to the stresses that you encounter daily, and prevent problems like knee or hip pain from developing in the first place.

What to Expect

Dr. Freedman checks patients completely to identify if subluxations are present. If they are, he’ll pinpoint their location and determine a course of chiropractic care to adjust those subluxations, improving energy to all parts of the body.

Dr. Freedman may also order X-rays and other imaging, like MRI or CT scan, if it’s an orthopedic issue, like a torn meniscus or cruciate ligament, especially when there’s trauma. Football players, basketball players, and tennis players, in particular, are prone to knee injuries.

Surgery should always be a last resort. In many cases, we’ve saved people from surgery, because we’ve stabilized the alignment of the foot, knee, hip, and spine, which enables the knee to function better. Or we’ve helped them defer surgery much longer and enable them to play healthier longer because their body’s functioning better.

Oftentimes, chiropractic care works when medical care and physical therapy care have failed.

In addition to care in our practice, here are some things you can do at home to alleviate your knee pain:

  • Engage in regular physical activity
  • Lose weight if overweight
  • Perform strengthening exercises
  • Maintain proper posture
  • Use PRICE: protection, rest, ice, compression and elevation
  • Self-Help Measures for Hip Pain

Here are some things you can do at home to relieve hip pain:

  • Rest. Refrain from activities that require you to bend at the hip or apply too much pressure to the hip. You should also avoid sleeping on the side of your hip that is painful, and sitting for extended periods.
  • Apply cold and heat. Consider this tried-and-true way of alleviating pain. You can wrap an ice pack or a bag of frozen vegetables in a towel, and then apply it to your hip. A warm bath or shower may also help decrease your pain and prepare your muscles for stretching.
  • Stretch. Gently stretching your body could help reduce hip pain, particularly if the cause is a pinched nerve.
