At Chronic Care of Richmond, we treat A LOT of knee problems. Chronic knee problems can be extremely debilitating and tremendously limit the lifestyle of someone who has them.
Many patients who come to us with knee problems have been told that they need surgery or that they are “bone on bone.” We pride ourselves on being able to help those who consider this their “last resort.” Generally speaking, most of the knee patients that come to CCR have been dealing with knee problems for a significant period of time. They are considered by some doctors to be the worst of the worst.
Dr. Snyder takes a wide spectrum approach to knee patients. It may be true that you have arthritis in your knees or they pop and click when you walk. But there may be more to your knee problem than meets the eye. We will do a thorough assessment of all nerve function in the lower extremities, reflexes, muscular control and balance of the lower legs, hip and sacroiliac function and your feet. All of these factors can play into a knee problem. You don’t just get bad knees for no apparent reason.
After we have done a full assessment we will let you know if you qualify for our knee program. If you do, your care program may consist of one or more of the following:
- Cold Laser Therapy
- Knee alignments
- Origin/Insertion work on the muscles that cross the knee joint
- Hip alignments
- Sacroiliac work
If we accept you, our goal of care will be help you avoid surgery, tremendously decrease or completely eliminate pain and improve stability and motion. If for any reason we believe that your knee problem is too serious for this program to correct we will let you know.
