Knee pain is a common problem for people in our Depew chiropractic office, and Dr. Palmer has successfully 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 example, some people feel pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. 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 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 caused by a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One study found that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to fix the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With Knee Problems
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 before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.
