Chronic Knee Pain

At Prax Family Chiropractic, we take care a LOT of knee problems.  Chronic knee problems can be extremely debilitating and tremendously limit the lifestyle of someone who has them.

Many patients who come to us with knee problems have been told that they need surgery or that they are “bone on bone.”  We pride ourselves on being able to help those who consider this their “last resort.”  Generally speaking, most of the knee patients that come to us have been dealing with knee problems for a significant period of time.  They are considered by some doctors to be the worst of the worst.

Dr. Prax takes a wide spectrum approach to knee patients.  It may be true that you have arthritis in your knees or they pop and click when you walk.  But there may be more to your knee problem than meets the eye.  We will do a thorough assessment of all nerve function in the lower extremities, reflexes, muscular control and balance of the lower legs, hip and sacroiliac function and your feet.  All of these factors can play into a knee problem.  You don’t just get bad knees for no reason.

After we have done a full assessment we will let you know if you qualify for our knee program.  If you do, your care program may consist of one or more of the following:

  • Cold Laser Therapy
  • Knee alignments
  • Origin/Insertion work on the muscles that cross the knee joint
  • Hip alignments
  • Sacroiliac work

If we accept you, our goal of care will be help you avoid surgery,  tremendously decrease or completely eliminate pain and improve stability and motion.  If for any reason we believe that your knee problem is too serious for this program to correct we will tell you that.

To schedule an appointment to see if we can help you overcome your knee problem, call 434-977-5433 or click here to have more information or to set up a consultation.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Prax. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced overall. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
    Back Pain
  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Prax. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."

  • "As I've now been under your care for over a year I look forward to each visit with you not only for the adjustment, but for the overall wellness feeling I know I will be walking out the door with."
