Knee pain is a frequent issue for patients in our Harrisburg chiropractic practice, and Dr. Blake has successfully provided many of these people relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For instance, some people encounter pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has demonstrated 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 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 as a result of a medial meniscus sprain, 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 necessary in order to repair the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that patients with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.
