Yes. Contrary to what most medical doctors will tell you, Chiropractors are experts in pain relief and safe manipulation of the musculoskeletal frame. Chiropractic treatments are always the least invasive, and no toxins are included in the treatments, so it makes sense to try those before pursuing more aggressive treatments. If your knee pain cannot be treated with chiropractic or acupuncture care, we will refer you to a specialist who can help you should you require further care.
Dr. Malakian will first examine your knee for signs of swelling and may order x-rays or other imaging to aid in the diagnostic process. If your knee is inflamed, you may need to rest it and ice it until swelling subsides. Once she determines the cause of your pain she may restore mobility to your knee and she may recommend massage and physio therapy to alleviate pain and restore function to the joint.
