Is Your Season at Risk because of a Recent Knee Injury?

Gaithersburg Doctor Reveals the Knee Injury Treatment Protocol that has been helping Local CrossFitters get Back in The Gym Fast.

... while also avoiding expensive medications and surgeries.

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... what are some of the most common athletic knee injuries that don't require surgery and long rehab times? (keep reading)

What are the Most Likely Causes of Knee Pain in (15-35 year old) Athletes that can be treated without Surgery?
Knee Pain and Instability can be caused by a lot of different things but, in athletes between the ages of 15-35, there are some usual culprits that are most likely the cause. The most common cause of Knee Issues in athletes would have to be the continued wear and tear caused by the trauma of competing at a high level. This "wear and tear" is also known as Osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is something that commonly affects older adults but it is also especially prevalent in High Level Athletes. In the knee, Osteoarthritis most commonly manifests itself as a breakdown of the cartilage in between the upper and lower leg. In Athletes, Osteoarthritis in the Knee can be affected by:

  • Your Age
    The older you get, the more time you've spent using a previously damaged knee joint knee joint. This can play a factor in your knee's overall breakdown over time.
  • Trauma
    Past accidents of the feet, low back, as well as the knee can all play a factor in knee joint breakdown.
  • Repetitive Stress
    Slow Trauma to the knee joints over time can be just as dangersous as a one time trauma.
  • Height and Weight
    Your height and weight affect the effective force which is exerted daily on your knees.
  • Old ACL or MCL Injuries
    As your body compensates for old injuries, the knee joint can be dramatically affected and degenerative processes can actually speed up.
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?
The Treatment Protocol We've Been Successfully Using to Help Young Athletes Get Relief from Their Knee Pain and Increase Stability.

Family Chiropractic's
Athletic Knee & Stability Protocol:

Over the last 10 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 for years, 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 your 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)
