Q. When I bend my knee, the area around my knee cap hurts. A doctor told me that ultrasound treatment would help. Can I have just ultrasound treatment?

To treat pain around the knee cap, we combine ultrasound treatment with manual therapy.

This is because pain around the knee cap is often due to a misalignment between the ankle and hip joint. While ultrasound therapy can relieve pain and improve your knee’s range of motion, manual therapy will help bring your ankle and hip joint back into correct alignment and thus tackle the root cause of the pain.

 

Q. I want to treat my frozen shoulder with acupuncture.

For frozen shoulder, we often propose combining acupuncture with physical therapy treatment (manual therapy and ultrasound treatment).

 

Acupuncture stimulates the affected area and improves blood flow, which gives you better range of motion and pain relief. However, the pain may be due to misalignment/distortions in your body, which is better addressed by physical therapy. Therefore, we recommend combining acupuncture with physical therapy treatment.

 

We’ll first ask in detail about your pain and examine your movement, range of motion, and the depth of your pain. Based on that, we’ll propose a treatment plan aimed at the root cause of your pain.

Q. I have a sprain. How often will I have to come to J-CLINIC for treatment until it heals?

We cannot suggest how often you should come to J-CLINIC for treatment until we examine your injury, movement and range of motion, and the depth of your pain.

 

The speed of recovery also depends on your habits, how you use your body, and lifestyle.
