Knee Pain Treatment with Chiropractic

Knee Pain Treatment with Chiropractic

Knee pain is a common problem for people in our Henderson chiropractic practice, and Dr. Russell has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.

For example, some patients feel 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 article published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that men and women with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

If your knee pain is because of a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article found that combining chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, 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 repair the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With Knee Pain

Research has shown that people with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.

No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Russell can likely help. Call our Henderson office today and find out what we can do for you!
