NuView Health Medical, Your Rockefeller Center Chiropractic, Provides Chiropractic For Chondromalacia Patella
Runners, do you find yourself wondering if there is a chiropractor near me? Our Rockefeller Center chiropractic care center is proud to serve the 10036 zip code area of NYC. If you live or work in the Hell's Kitchen, Midtown East, Midtown West, or general Midtown area and suffer from chondromalacia patella (otherwise known as runner's knee) our chiropractor is here to provide the effective treatment for your knee pain. If not treated properly, chondromalacia patella can cause permanent damage to your knee and femur and lead to chronic pain and discomfort.
Treating Your Knee Pain at NuView Health Medical
This condition is caused by your kneecap being out of alignment and rubbing against your femur (thigh bone) when you bend your knee. Repetitive friction caused by this rubbing can cause the kneecap to deteriorate which in turn leads to runner's knee. Due to the repetitive motion of running, this condition affects many active runners and athletes, especially those whose hamstrings and quadriceps are not as strong as they need to be to properly support the kneecap.
Chondromalacia is classified at four different levels, numbered one through four, with the severity increasing with the numbers. In addition to arthroscopic surgery, there are other non-invasive treatment options that our chiropractor can provide. The first step is to get your kneecap back into proper alignment and decrease the friction between the patella and the femur. Next, we will work to strengthen the hamstring and quadriceps to increase the support provided to the kneecap that helps to keep it in place and properly aligned.
Physical therapy allows us to craft an exercise regimen that strengthens and builds the necessary supportive muscles which aid in the prevention of re-injury and chronic pain and discomfort. If you have ongoing and repetitive knee pain that lasts longer than a few days, now is the time to seek comprehensive and effective treatment at NuView Health Medical.
