Chiropractic Helps with Knee Pain

Depew natural knee knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a frequent problem for people in our Depew chiropractic practice, and Dr. Palmer has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.

For instance, some individuals experience pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has shown 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 enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

If your knee pain is caused by a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case 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 necessary in order to rectify the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With Knee Pain

Medical research has shown that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.

No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Palmer can likely help. Call our Depew location today and find out what we can do for you!
