Knee pain is a common issue for people in our Pinole chiropractic practice, and Dr. Jung has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic adjustment has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For instance, some patients experience issues in and around the knee area 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 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 sprain, chiropractic adjustments could likely help with that as well. One article found that combining chiropractic therapy 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 fix the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
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 prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.
