Knee pain is a common issue for patients in our Sayville chiropractic office, and Precision Chiropractic has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic therapy has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For instance, some patients feel discomfort in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has proven 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 due to a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic adjustments could likely help with that as well. One study found that combining chiropractic care with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the problems.
Clearly, 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 has shown that people with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
