Knee pain is a common problem for patients in our Henderson, NV chiropractic practice, 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 types of knee pain.
For instance, some individuals experience 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 study 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 caused by a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case found that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue therapy, 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 issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has found that people with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.
