Knee pain is a frequent issue for patients in our North County St. Louis, MO chiropractic office, and Dr. Holland has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For example, some people encounter pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has confirmed 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 significant pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is as a result of a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article 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 necessary in order to fix the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that people with low back pain frequently 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 recovery.
