Knee pain is a frequent issue for people in our Noblesville chiropractic clinic, and Dr. Dahlager has successfully provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic therapy has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For instance, some people encounter problems in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has demonstrated that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic and rather quickly, too. In fact, one study 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 caused by a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic treatment could likely help with that as well. One article reported that combining chiropractic therapy with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to rectify the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that patients with low back pain frequently 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.
