Knee pain is a frequent issue for people in our Decatur chiropractic office, and Dr. Harrison has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is largely because chiropractic adjustment has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For example, some patients experience discomfort in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has shown 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 improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is due to a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic adjustments could likely help with that as well. One case found that integrating chiropractic treatment with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the issues.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to correct the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
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.
