Knee Injuries

Knee injuries occur when abnormal forces or loads are placed on the knee, often during sport or labour intensive work.

Such injuries can be to the intrinsic ligaments of the knee, such as the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) or Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL), or to more extrinsic ligaments, muscles, and nerves.

Chiropractors are trained in the orthopedic examination of knees, and can determine a differential diagnosis, whether referral is required for further imaging and/or surgery, and design a rehabilitation program to return your knee to a functional level.
