Can chiropractors help with torn knee ligaments?
Randomly popping/cracking your (or someone else’s) back or neck without proper training will many times make a joint worse. It can also potentially cause side effects, such as joint instability.
A torn knee ligament or meniscus may cause knee pain. There are several severities of torn ligaments. If a ligament is completely torn, then the treatment will require a surgical approach. If a ligament is only slightly torn, we still recommend consulting with a medical professional first to detect the severity. Our team of chiropractors has worked with several patients with torn ligaments in the knee. As these ligaments heal, we want to ensure that they heal correctly without any hard to the integrity and alignment of the knee.
If you’ve torn a ligament in your knee and you feel like something is still not feeling/looking right, then be sure to schedule your first visit with one of our doctors in Austin today. Our knee pain specialists can complete a full examination and determine exactly what is needed to correct the alignment of your knee!
