Knee pain is a frequent problem for people in our Kettering chiropractic office, and Dr. Poelking has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is largely 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 demonstrated 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 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 caused by a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case found that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to fix 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 frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.
