Knee pain is a common problem for people in our Kettering chiropractic practice, and Dr. Poelking has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For example, some individuals encounter pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has confirmed that this ailment 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 considerable pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is caused by a medial meniscus sprain, 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.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to rectify the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has found that people with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.
