Philadelphia natural knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a frequent problem for patients in our Philadelphia chiropractic practice, and Bridesburg Spine and Injury Clinic has successfully provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.

For example, some individuals experience pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has demonstrated that this condition responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that individuals with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and enhanced 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 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 necessary in order to correct the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Knee Problems

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 before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.

No matter what your knee issue, Bridesburg Spine and Injury Clinic can likely help. Call our Philadelphia location today and find out what we can do for you!
