Knee pain is a frequent issue for people in our Highland Park, Saint Paul, Minnesota chiropractic office, and Robert C Slater, DC has happily 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 patients encounter pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has shown 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 significant pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is due to a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article reported that combining 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 required in order to repair the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has found that people with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
