Knee pain is a recurring problem for patients in our Mt Sterling chiropractic practice, and Linton Spine & Joint Chiropractic Center has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic therapy has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For instance, some patients deal with problems in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has proven that this condition responds very well to chiropractic and rather quickly, too. In fact, one study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that people with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is as a result of a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic treatment could likely help with that as well. One article showed that integrating chiropractic adjustments with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the discomfort.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to fix the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
