Knee pain is a common issue for patients in our Noblesville chiropractic practice, and Dr. Dahlager has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For instance, some people feel pain 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 article published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that men and women with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is due to a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case found that integrating chiropractic 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 fix the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that patients with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.
