Shoulder & Knee Pain Treatment in Solana Beach, CA • Action Performance Care

They will also adjust the spine to bring balance to the body and improve posture. By having the neck and upper back adjusted, it will also help relieve shoulder discomfort.

Chiropractic Care can Help Improve Knee Function while Eliminating Pain
Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis in the knee, is caused by the gradual degradation of the cartilage in the joint. A deformity can lead to arthritis in the knee, but obesity, excess weight or repetitive stress injuries from sports are more often the culprits. Symptoms include pain, swelling, stiffness or locking joints.
The knee is a joint that relies heavily on ligaments and muscles for stability. When pain is perceived as coming from the knee, all the anatomical components need to be examined. In addition to the knee joint, the low back, pelvis, hip, ankle and foot need to be evaluated due to the direct influence they have on the knee and vice versa.
How We Treat Patients with Chronic Shoulder and Knee Pain at our Solana Beach Chiropractic Clinic
Each patient that visits our facility is unique. Therefore, the course of treatment recommended by Dr. Liu and her staff will vary from patient to patient. Most commonly, Dr. Liu will utilize specific chiropractic manipulation techniques combined with ART® or other non-invasive treatment modalities to areas of restricted movement in the knee and surrounding joints. These treatments can increase movement, improve function and reduce pain.
Inflammation is also reduced with ice, and a customized rehabilitation and exercise program will be provided by our staff. This individualized program will include rehabilitative exercises to complete at our facility as well as at the patient’s place of residence.
Patients Love What We Do!
I first saw Dr. Liu six years ago when I was suffering chronic migraines due to jaw tension caused
taking a water polo ball to the face at full speed. I was suffering from migraines or headaches multiple times a week and had tried basic chiro care to no avail. Doctors said my one solution would be jaw surgery, but I gave ART a try first. After my first session my migraines stopped. I went about 4 times when I was home for the holidays and I haven’t suffered headaches since — for SIX YEARS after having them almost every day. I have never seen such amazing lasting results from any kind of care.
Heads up though, it hurts. Like REALLY hurts. There were times it hurt so bad I was worried I would pee myself on the table. But the relief after was worth it every time. She may look tiny, but Dr. Liu is STRONG!
Fast forward six years and I have chronic shoulder issues from surfing. I was ready to go for an MRI but then remembered the magic of Dr. Lui. She has helped me immensely with my shoulder problems, as well as hip and calf pain. She is great at explaining your body to you and, most importantly, will teach you how to retrain your movements to properly use your muscles. If you have any problems, give her a try. Dr. Liu has kept me in the water when I thought I’d have to give up my favorite hobby and I will always be thankful for that!
