One of the scariest things that can happen in the life of a young athlete is having to deal with injuries. The uncertainty of getting good treatment and the rehab process is something that keeps even the toughest athletes up at night.  One of the scariest injuries that young athletes have to deal with are knee injuries. 

It's hard to know whether or not you have a minor injury that is caused by overuse or something more

serious that could require surgery and keep you out of competing longterm. The good news is that once you understand the usual core causes of knee pain and instability in young athletes, you can actually do something about it with some very simple and inexpensive treatments.

Our Athletic Knee Pain and Instability Treatment Protocol works so well because we help you body overcome the processes causing the pain and instability as we help you make the muscles around your knee even stronger.

Most of the knee issues we see in older athletes took years to develop. Our treatment works because we make sure that we set your body up to heal before the condition is allowed to get worse. Our success rate with this condition is based on the fact that we always allow your body to do what it needs to do. No two patient's knee conditions are alike and we make sure that we treat each condition as such. This is critical in making sure that you heal as quickly as possible, while staying safe.

PLEASE NOTE: Not all Knee Conditions are treatable with this protocol. We take special care during our exam to make sure that this treatment is right for you. (see below for more)

What Our Patients Are Saying About Their Experience with The Grice Chiropractic Knee Injury Protocol.



I went there a few years ago and then recently returned and they actually remembered my name, details about me personally.. I just felt so welcomed. I always feel better and am able to go in just every now and then to get maintenance adjustments and they work with me well on that. The office is very clean and nice. I love their values as well. I’ll never go anywhere else.
