Have Knee Pain? Chiropractic May Help

State College natural knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a frequent problem for people in our State College chiropractic practice, and Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.

For example, some individuals experience pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has demonstrated that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that men and women with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and enhanced 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 case found that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.

Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to fix the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With Knee Injuries

Medical research has found that people 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 healing.

No matter what your knee issue, Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes can likely help. Call our State College practice today and find out what we can do for you!
