Knee pain is a common issue for people in our North County, St. Louis, MO chiropractic practice, and Dr. Mark Holland 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 example, some patients experience pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has proven 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 tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case reported 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 required in order to rectify the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that people with low back pain often 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.
