ACL injuries are not only the most well-known knee injury but also the most common that we see and treat in our practice. ACL or anterior cruciate ligament injury is not only something athletes get.
This can happen to you regardless of your level of activity. Some causes of ACL injuries are stopping suddenly, changing directions of your body quickly, landing awkwardly, direct collision or force, or even slowing down while running. Of course, these actions are common during sports, but can also be present in everyday activities.
Our Jonesboro, GA chiropractic treatment can help treat an ACL injury should you be inflicted with one. How does chiropractic care help with a knee injury? As you may know, chiropractic care is a great way to help the function of the nervous system which controls the rest of the body.
Alternately, a specific adjustment to the knee joint can help restore function and mobility, in turn, helping to shorten the healing process. ACL sprains especially benefit from this as they result from the ligament being stretched. If you have a torn ACL, chiropractic care cannot reconnect the fibers but can help during the healing process.
If you are suffering from an ACL injury call us at (404) 602-0387 so we can participate in the return of the motion to your knee and increased healing time. Even if you need surgery, we would be happy to facilitate treatments to decrease your pain and get you on your feet quicker.
