Knee pain is a frequent problem for patients in our North County St. Louis, MO chiropractic office, and Dr. Holland has happily provided many of these people relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For instance, some individuals experience 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 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 because of 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.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to correct the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that patients with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.
