Knee pain is a common problem for patients in our Depew / Lancaster chiropractic practice, and Dr. William Palmer has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For instance, some people encounter pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has demonstrated that this ailment 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 due to a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article reported that combining 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 required in order to repair the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
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 healing.
