Knee pain is a frequent issue for patients in our New Carrollton chiropractic office, and Dr. Heusler has happily provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For instance, 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 paper published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that individuals 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 sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case found that combining 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 issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
