Knee pain is a frequent issue for patients in our Great Falls chiropractic practice, and Dr. Six has successfully 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 instance, some individuals encounter pain 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 because of a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One study reported that integrating 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 fix the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic 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. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.
