Knee pain is a frequent issue for patients in our North County, St. Louis, MO chiropractic practice, and Dr. Mark Holland has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For instance, some individuals feel pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has demonstrated 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 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 therapy, 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 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 frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.
