Knee Pain Treatment in Vancouver

Knee Pain in VancouverKnee Pain has many possible origins and can be as debilitating and annoying as anything. The knee joint is a hinge joint seperated by shock-absorbing meniscus and stabilized by strong ligaments (ACL = anterior cruciate ligament, PCL = posterior cruciate ligmanet, MCL = medical cruciate ligament, LCL = lateral cruciate ligament).

The knee joint is a weight bearing joint that can take a lot of abuse over the years. Faulty biomechanics from the feet can have a destructive effect on the knee joint. This is where custom orthotic inserts play a role in preventing breakdown and treating knee pain.

Arthritis is common to the knee joint. Years of repetitive strain and lack of biomechanical shock absorption from the feet can great a "worn and torn" knee joint. Prevention is the best measure. Symptomatic treatment such as ice/heat, massage, acupuncture, chiropractic mobilizations and custom orthotic therapy can all provide relief.
