Knee pain is a common issue for patients in our Fleming Island, FL chiropractic practice, and Select Health and Wellness has happily provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For example, some patients encounter pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has demonstrated that this condition 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 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 article reported that combining 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 issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that people 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 recovery.
