Knee pain is a frequent problem for people in our Jacksonville and Fleming Island chiropractic office, and Dr. Fritz has happily provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic therapy has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For example, some individuals deal with discomfort in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has proven 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 as a result of a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic adjustments could likely help with that as well. One case found that combining chiropractic treatment with soft tissue therapy, 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 repair the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has found that patients with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.
