Knee pain is a common issue for people in our State College chiropractic clinic, and Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes has happily provided many of these men and women relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For example, some people encounter issues in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has proven 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 people with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is because of a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic treatment could likely help with that as well. One study reported that combining chiropractic care with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to rectify 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 often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.
