Have Knee Pain? Chiropractic May Help

Depew natural knee knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a common issue for patients in our Depew chiropractic practice, and Dr. Palmer has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.

For example, some individuals experience pain 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 paper published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that men and women 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 could likely help with that as well. One case reported 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 rectify the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Knee Pain

Medical research has shown that people with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.

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