Chiropractic Helps with Knee Pain

Henderson, NV natural knee knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a common issue for people in our Henderson, NV chiropractic office, and Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.

For instance, some individuals experience pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has demonstrated that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that men and women with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

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

Research has found that patients with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.

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