Professional Treatment for
Knee Pain & Shoulder Pain in Windsor

If you are experiencing chronic or worsening acute knee pain or shoulder pain, you might have been led to believe your only solution is ‘traditional’ treatment in the form of medication and/or surgery. In actuality, there are several alternative options available to provide significant relief without the need for invasive and disrupting procedures, including professional chiropractic and MLS medical laser care.

Speak with our team at Balanced for Life to learn more about practical methods to treat your knee pain & shoulder pain in Windsor.


Our Techniques & Methods Used to Treat
Knee Pain & Shoulder Pain

Our experienced chiropractors apply a range of specialised and tailored treatment plans
for our clients, including:

  • Manual Therapy: Hands on manual therapy is one modality that can help to relieve shoulder and knee pain. It also helps to increase circulation and range of motion to restore function of the shoulder and knee joints.

  • MLS medical Laser: Targeted laser light therapy decreases inflammation and swelling, which improves range of motion, strength, flexibility and reduces the severity of pain.

  • Taping: By applying tape and strapping to specified areas, you can work to better manage shoulder and knee pain. This taping will help to support joints and muscles in their place, which can help to reduce pain and inflammation.

  • Strength training: These tailored exercises can be effective for shoulder and knee pain, improving muscle function and supporting joints, helping to prevent future injuries.

  • Rehabilitation: Rehabilitation exercises are another useful treatment option, especially post-operation. Rehabilitation helps to improve range of motion, strength, and flexibility while actively decreasing inflammation and swelling.

What Can Cause Knee Pain?

Knee pain is a widespread problem that can be caused by a wide variety of factors, such as:


  • Arthritis: Arthritis is prevalent in older adults with many different types manifesting, but they all involve inflammation of the joints, which can lead to knee pain, stiffness, and swelling.

  • Injury: The kneecap (patella) is only a small bone at the front of the knee that can be easily injured, usually by coming into contact with other objects. Other common injuries include meniscus tears and ligament sprains or tears.

  • Overuse: Doing too much activity that puts stress on the knees can also lead to knee pain. This is often seen in athletes or people who have jobs requiring them to kneel or squat frequently.

  • Obesity: Being overweight or obese can put extra strain on the knees and lead to pain, given the excess weight and stress placed upon limited tendons and joints.

  • Aging: As we age, the cartilage in our joints starts to break down, leading to pain and stiffness.

What are Some Injuries & Conditions Frequently Behind Shoulder Pain?

The shoulder is a complex joint made up of bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments, all of which can be susceptible to injury or other conditions, such as:


  • Rotator cuff tears: The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint that help to lift the arm. A tear in any of these structures can cause pain and difficulty moving.

  • Frozen shoulder: Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition in which the shoulder joint becomes stiff and painful, often due to an injury or overuse of the joint.

  • Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition affecting the joints, causing pain, stiffness, and swelling.

  • Bursitis: Bursitis is an inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs, called bursae, in place to cushion the bones, muscles, and tendons around the joints, causing pain and stiffness in the affected area.

  • Tendonitis: Tendonitis is also a form of inflammation, only in the tendons attaching the muscles to bones, creating sensitivity, pain and difficulty moving the limb.

  • Muscle strains: A muscle strain is a tear in a muscle or tendon. It can be caused by overuse, improper lifting, or sudden impact, and can be very painful and may require rest and rehabilitation to heal properly.
