Knee pain is a frequent problem for patients in our Henderson, NV chiropractic office, and Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda has happily provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For instance, some patients feel pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has shown that this condition responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one article published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that people with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and improved 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 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 necessary in order to correct the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has found that patients with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.
