Knee pain is a common issue for patients in our Henderson, NV chiropractic office, and Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda has happily provided many of these men and women relief. This is largely 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 osteoarthritis. 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 significant 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 study reported that integrating 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 rectify the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown 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.
