Knee pain is a frequent problem for patients in our Mt Sterling chiropractic practice, and Dr. Linton has happily provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For instance, some patients encounter pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has proven that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one paper published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that individuals with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is because of a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article found that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to repair the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that people with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.
