Knee pain is a common problem for people in our Noblesville chiropractic office, and Dr. Dahlager 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 instance, some individuals feel pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has shown that this condition 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 considerable pain relief and improved 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 case reported that combining 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 required in order to repair the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that people with low back pain often have less positive results 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.
