Knee pain is a frequent problem for people in our Hernando, Horn Lake & Olive Branch chiropractic office, and Our Chiropractic Team has successfully provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For instance, some individuals feel pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has shown that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one article published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that people with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is due to a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case reported that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to correct the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research Proves Chiropractic Helps With Knee Injuries
Medical research has found that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery recovery.
