Many of the patients who seek treatment from our Atlanta Chiropractors suffer from pain in their lower extremities, which refers to the area between your hips and ankles. These kinds of conditions affect over six million people throughout the United States and can be treated without the use of surgery or prescription medications.
Most patients who experience pain in their lower extremities suffer from soft or hard tissue conditions in their hips, knees, and ankles. Often, such conditions are the result of stress and overuse that has developed over a significant period of time.
Your hips are responsible for controlling the majority of your movement. Sustaining any type of hip injury or experiencing some kind of deterioration can cause dull or sharp pain that prevents you from following through with basic activities like walking. Our Chiropractors treat hip conditions such as sciatica, bursitis, and strains on a regular basis.
The knees comprise of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage that are sensitive to stress or blunt trauma. Knee pain often derives from bursitis, tendonitis, and other degenerative conditions like arthritis.
Ankle pain is often the result of a sprain, shin splints, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and heel spurs.
Patients who suffer from pain in their lower extremities can receive relief by meeting with one of our Chiropractors for an examination. Using various techniques to identify the source and cause of each patient’s pain, we can develop a treatment plan that is customized to meet each person’s specific needs.
As the leading experts in musculoskeletal conditions, Chiropractors are the perfect go-to resource whenever chronic pain, sprains, strains, or fractures exist. Using a combination of adjustments, therapeutic techniques, and controlled exercises, we can help improve a patient’s range of motion, while also alleviating pain.
Depending on the circumstances and extent of your condition, braces are safe, efficient solutions for alleviating pain. At AICA Atlanta, our Chiropractors can provide a variety of braces that reduce pressure and provide greater stability to injured joints.
