Chiropractic Helps with Knee Pain
Knee pain is a frequent problem for people in our Redondo Beach chiropractic practice, and Dr. Vinick 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 experience pain 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 men and women 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 could likely help with that as well. One case 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 required in order to correct the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Knee Injuries
Research has found that people with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery recovery.
