Knee pain is a frequent issue for people in our Gadsden chiropractic practice, and Gadsden Family Chiropractic has happily 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 patients encounter problems in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has confirmed 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 enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is caused by a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic adjustments could likely help with that as well. One article showed that integrating chiropractic therapy with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the discomfort.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to correct the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has found that patients with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.
