Have Knee Pain? Chiropractic May Help

Harrisburg natural knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a frequent issue for patients in our Harrisburg chiropractic practice, and Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.

For example, some people 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 article published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that individuals with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant 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 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 necessary in order to repair the issue, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Knee Problems

Medical research has shown that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.

No matter what your knee issue, Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation can likely help. Call our Harrisburg clinic today and find out what we can do for you!
