Many individuals experience knee pain but don’t know the original cause. Part of the 5 Step Spinal Check-up is to analyze the foundation of the pelvis. If there is a sacrum or hip misalignment it will directly affect the femur position which is the long bone located in the top of the leg. Correcting this misalignment in the hip will allow the knee joints to glide properly and reduce the degree of irritation and inflammation. Even patients with arthritis and decreased cartilage experience results.
Spinal stenosing is a common diagnosis given to patients who suffer from chronic back pain. It is a gradual narrowing of the spinal canal and can worsen over the time. The cause of spinal stenosing is a locked vertebra or a subluxation. When one bone loses motion and can no longer glide properly on the bone below or above the opening will close and create pressure on the nerve and disc. The solution in medicine is to treat with injections or prescription drugs. These two approaches may eliminate symptoms from the stenosing temporarily but they will never correct the cause.
The technology we use can show us exactly which bone is locked and in which direction it is locked. Restoring proper motion and alignment will allow the canal to open and will prevent further pressure from occurring.
