Knee pain is a common problem for people in our Depew chiropractic office, 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 example, some patients feel pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has confirmed that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one article published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that individuals with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is due to a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One study reported that integrating 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 can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has found that people with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery recovery.
