I had pain in my knee for a few years before I finally got rid of it. One might ask why I waited so long to get it fixed, and my answer is quite simple. I had no idea that it was able to be fixed. I thought that it was just a part of getting older, so I accepted it without complaining that often. When I got a new doctor though, he told me that having that kind of pain is absolutely not a part of getting on in years. He sent me to a chiropractor in Phoenix because I told him I did not want anything to do with medication or surgery.
He explained that the most non invasive way to treat it was holistically. That was my lingo, so I went to the chiropractor that he suggested. The chiropractor was so knowledgeable about knee pain, which I suppose makes sense since that is his business. He showed me a diagram of my knee, explaining about the different joints and muscles. He was actually able to show me with a model of a knee why I was experiencing so much pain.
It made sense, so I asked him what he would be able to do to help me out with this. I did not want my knee twisted and pulled because I was already hurting enough. He smiled, explaining that the adjustments are very simple and are not painful at all. He said that it would require just gentle touches as well as physical therapy, which I had no problem with. I was so happy to see that I was having less pain almost immediately after starting to see the chiropractor. Now, whenever I have any kind of pain, I go to him first, because I trust that he will be able to help me overcome it in the easiest and least painful way.
