Knee pain can also be a referred type pain that can been seen in conjunction with lower back problems and/or pelvic misalignment. Athletes who complain of pain should be functionally tested for contributing problems as well.
Dr. Gilbert is highly trained not only in spinal adjustments but extremity manipulations and mobilizations as well. Manipulation to an extremity utilizes a quick but gentle maneuver similar to that applied to the spine. These adjustments along with soft tissue techniques and manipulation (Massage Therapy) increase joint mobility and range of motion, thereby decreasing pain and increasing overall performance of that specific joint. Ultrasound can also be beneficial in both acute and chronic conditions.
