One of the scariest things that can happen in the life of a young athlete is having to deal with injuries. The uncertainty of getting good treatment and the rehab process is something that keeps even the toughest athletes up at night. One of the scariest injuries that young athletes have to deal with are knee injuries.
It's hard to know whether or not you have
a minor injury that is caused by overuse or something more serious that could require surgery and keep you out of competing longterm.
The good news is that once you understand the usual core causes of knee pain and instability in young athletes, you can actually do something about it with some very simple and inexpensive treatments. Once you understand what is actually causing your knee issues, you can also do a lot to avoid the things that caused it (and get your body over the issue before it becomes a long term problem).
While some common athletic knee injuries do require surgeries and long term rehab, it's important to know about the type of knee injuries that are common in young athletes that don't. Understanding this can save you a lot of money and rehab time and get you back to competing fast.

So if the cause of your knee pain and instability is Osteoarthritis, what can you do to effectively treat the condition, relieve pain, increase the stability of the knees, and potentially reverse the underlying cause?
Over the last ***NUMBER OF YEARS IN PRACTICE*** we've focused our office on helping local athletes beat knee pain and instability. While some offices focus on being a "catch all" provider, we have been dialing in our procedure for helping patients who suffer from a few specific ailments.
After working with hundreds of Athletes who have been afflicted with knee pain, we've developed a treatment protocol that is specifically tailored to the body of a Young Athlete. Because of this focus we've developed a gentle and medication free Knee Pain treatment Protocol that has been very successful.
Our Special Treatment Protocol uses a combination of Gentle Knee and Hip Joint Adjustments, Supportive Kinesio Taping, FDA Approved Cold Laser Therapy, as well as a Focused personal Home Rehabilitation program.
The Careful Combination of these treatments can help you stop the unhealthy processes that are going on in your knees before they become an even bigger issue. Our Athletic Knee Pain and Instability Treatment Protocol works so well because we help you body overcome the processes causing the pain and instability as we help you make the muscles around your knee even stronger.
Most of the knee issues we see in older athletes took years to develop. Our treatment works because we make sure that we set your body up to heal before the condition is allowed to get worse. Our success rate with this condition is based on the fact that we always allow your body to do what it needs to do. No two patient's knee conditions are alike and we make sure that we treat each condition as such. This is critical in making sure that you heal as quickly as possible, while staying safe.
PLEASE NOTE: Not all Knee Conditions are treatable with this protocol. We take special care during our exam to make sure that this treatment is right for you. (see below for more)
We have a very Simple Policy here at Family First Chiropractic. We don't do any treatment until you understand exactly what is causing your knee issues and you know what your options for fixing it are (even if fixing it involves something outside of what our office can provide.) We work for you and our job is to make sure you know all of the options out there and can make an informed decision.
