Knee pain is a common issue for patients in our Philadelphia chiropractic clinic, and Bridesburg Spine and Injury Clinic has happily provided many of these people relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For instance, some patients feel discomfort in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has proven that this condition responds very well to chiropractic and rather quickly, too. In fact, one paper 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 because of a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic adjustments could likely help with that as well. One study found that integrating chiropractic adjustments with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the issues.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to repair the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that patients with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.
