Knee pain is a common issue for people in our Kettering chiropractic office, and Dr. Poelking has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For instance, some individuals feel pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has confirmed 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 people with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable 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 case 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 fix the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has found that people 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 assist with your post-surgery recovery.
