Knee pain is a common issue for patients in our Parma, Middleburg Heights chiropractic practice, and Baker Chiropractic Wellness Center has successfully provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For example, some patients feel pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has shown 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 considerable pain relief and improved 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 article found 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 issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that people with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery recovery.
