Knee pain relief should not be dependent on pain medication. Pain medication masks pain symptoms without addressing damage or repairing the inflammation that is causing your pain.
Our doctors in Myrtle Beach offer a variety of knee pain relief treatments designed to keep you mobile and pain-free. Our comprehensive pain management includes the latest rejuvenating therapy and chiropractic care to mend damage and re-establish function.
Your knee is a complex joint with many components, making it vulnerable to various injuries. Some of the most common knee injuries include fractures, dislocations, sprains, and ligament tears.
There are also certain conditions that cause knee pain, such as:
- Runner’s knee
- IT (iliotibial) band syndrome
- Osgood-Schlatter disease
- Patellar or knee tendonitis
- Patellofemoral pain syndrome
Knee Injury Treatment
When you are first injured, rest, ice, gentle compression, and elevation can help speed your recovery.
Be sure to seek treatment as soon as possible, especially if you:
- Hear a popping noise and feel your knee give out at the time of injury
- Have severe pain
- Cannot move your knee
- Begin limping
- Have swelling at the injury site
The type of treatment you need will depend on several factors, such as the severity of your injury, your age, general health, and activity level. We are experts at diagnosing and treating joint pain and injuries, so come in to see us as fast as you can.
The longer you wait to get treated, the worse the injury can get, and it can even lead to potentially permanent damage to your joint.
Our doctors focus on natural healing by first assessing your condition and addressing the issues causing your knee pain. We can then provide the most effective, personalized treatment plans and natural pain relief solutions for your needs.
Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment
Platelet-rich plasma injections use the platelets found in your blood. They are activated to heal damaged tissues when your body senses it has been injured. Increasing the number of platelets available by injecting them directly to injured areas amplifies your healing ability for faster recovery and reduced pain.
Even though most people associate chiropractors with injuries of the back and neck, chiropractors are also capable of treating knee pain.
The first thing that will happen is you will get an examination to determine what is wrong. From there, a treatment plan will be created to treat your specific issue.
It may come to light during your examination that your knee is not the actual true source of your pain. Chiropractic care is a whole-body treatment that will also handle whatever specific injury or problem you are experiencing.
Because your muscles and nerves work in conjunction to make your body function properly, keeping both in optimal health is critical.
Chiropractic treatments do just that by treating issues with your nervous system and your spine and providing a release of stress from your body by relaxing your muscles.
This process stimulates healthy circulation, digestion, and many more daily functions.
Physical Therapy plays an important role in relieving pain and returning your knee back to its full function. Our Physical Therapist, Scott Floyd, is passionate about giving his patients a higher quality of life through his Physical Therapy services. He develops a treatment plan tailored to your needs using hands-on treatment and exercises to restore mobility and function to the knee.
Improper care of injury or conditions causing pain can result in ongoing pain and occasional flare-ups that can affect your mobility. By addressing knee pain right away, you can reduce the risk of your condition worsening.

We look forward to hearing from you.
