Knee Pain Treatment
SIGNS & SYMPTOMS OF KNEE PAIN
One of the largest joints in the body, the knees is made up four bones: the femur, tibia, fibula, and patella. These bones are supported by ligaments, tendons, and a medial and lateral meniscus. The knee is designed to extend and flex with a little rotational ability. Pain, stiffness, and soreness around the knee can develop if it is unable to maintain proper tracking and stability due to instability and faulty hip and ankle movement.
WHAT CAN CAUSES KNEE PAIN?
Knee pain can be caused by many factors, including overuse, quickly stopping or changing directions, impact, and faulty movement patterns around the knee.

What some of our clients have to say
I was experiencing knee and leg tightness that was causing numbness in a couple of my toes. I had gone to see a traditional chiropractor for a few sessions but my condition wasn't improving.
I then found out about Tangelo and the rest is history. Dr. Krysann was able to mix both traditional chiro adjustments with a lot of soft tissue work to loosen up my legs and knees.
Not only is Tangelo great for fixing ailments, the atmosphere truly sets it apart. You walk in and everyone greets you with a big smile. You truly feel like you have a team watching your back, working in harmony. They create an atmosphere that makes you want to stay and just hang out.
Definitely come check out the team at Tangelo if you're looking to be inspired to be your best physical self.
I sprained my knee and went to another physical therapist and was unimpressed. Within a week of treatment at Tangelo the pain in my knee was going away and full range of movement was returning.
Their focus on building strength and teaching me the right exercises has enabled me to run and bike again. This is huge!! Thanks Sean, Geneva and Dr. Molina–it is great to have you part of my rehab team!!
