Treating Knee Pain with Chiropractic

Each year we have hundreds of patients mention knee pain or come in specifically after a knee injury. Chiropractic treats all the joints in the body and not just the back, so we have treatment that can alleviate pain and accelerate healing for knee pain and knee injuries.

Examining the Nerves Surrounding the Knee

One of the first things that we’ll do is look at how the nerves are firing and functioning with our scanning tool. The nerves control the energy to the knee area, which affects the rehabilitation to the knee area.

The Knee is Interconnected

We’ll also look if the hip and ankle joints are moving correctly, as they affect each other from the ankle up to knee down. If those joints are limited, such as rotation in the hip, the knee will be affected and prone to pain or re injury.

Treating Knee Range of Motion

In addition to adjusting the back, hips, and ankles that are contributing to the knee pain, we use our adjustment instrument to work on the range of motion. The instrument taps 12 times per second and when used on restricted tissue, it will work through to regain a normal range of motion.

Did you know that 3-5 times your body weight is transmitted through your ankles, hips and knees upon running or jogging?

One simple way to dissipate these forces is to utilize custom orthotics.

Check Out Our Booth At A Race Near You

Did you know 3-5x of our bodyweight is transmitted through the leg, during each step’s impact, when running?

Raceday brings a certain amount of physical stress on our bodies, which is sometimes exacerbated by prerace nerves.  By the time the race is over, you can see the toll it takes on the bodies of athletes hobbling around the finish line.

This season we have been touring some of the local race series.  This past weekend we had a booth at the Splash, Mash and Dash Triathlon, complete with massage tables and a massage chair.  Dr Zales and massage therapist, Sharyn Greenberg gave complimentary massage and assisted athletes with post race stretching on August 10th.

Free Massages! Our booth at the Splash Mash Dash Triathlon.

A great job to all the participants!  This USAT sanctioned event had sprint and olympic triathlon distances, that drew experienced and novice triathletes alike.

While we were set up prospective patients asked their questions about pains and injuries, and how massage and chiropractic may be able to help them.  In fact… Chiropractic is for everybody!

Chiropractic adjustments keep the 26 bones in the feet moving correctly and the muscle work keeps the muscles and fascia moving correctly.

High impact sports like running are known for the various injuries, which can sometimes take an athlete in their athletic prime to the sidelines to rest and rehab an injury.  Active athletes benefit from getting regular chiropractic adjustments, and massages.

If you weren’t at the Splash, Mash and Dash, but have running, cycling or swimming ambitions of your own, please come talk to our massage therapists, trainers and doctors – we’ll be here to help you reach your goals!

Overcoming Pain in Your Fitness Program

When most people get started with a fitness program, it goes great until the point where their bodies are hurting and vulnerable areas start hurting. Old injuries, stiff joints, and sore spots can cause even the most ambitious and goal oriented individuals to plateau at this point.

In this segment of Colorado’s Best morning television show, our own Dr Kambeitz talks about how massage and chiropractic adjustments are used along with exercise to improve the flexibility and range of motion for these vulnerable areas in 8WW participants.

Behind the Scenes: Chiropractic and MLL Lacrosse Player Mark Matthews

For the past four years, Kambeitz Chiropractic and Dr. Kambeitz has been a very strong asset to my lacrosse career at the University of Denver. Whether he was treating me for an injury or offering an array of stretching techniques, Dr. Kambeitz has a profound understanding of my individual needs. Through his meticulous care and proficiency I am pain free today and was able to keep healthy throughout my college career. He was able to keep me healthy as he has an acute understanding of athletes. Without Dr. Kambeitz’s golden hands and the rest of Kambeitz Chiropractic, I may not have triumphed to my ultimate goal, playing professional lacrosse.
