Have Knee Pain? Chiropractic May Help

Nashville natural knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a frequent issue for patients in our Nashville chiropractic office, and Sweeney Chiropractic has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.

For instance, some patients encounter pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. 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 significant pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

If your knee pain is caused by a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One study found that combining chiropractic 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 necessary in order to repair the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Knee Problems

Medical research has shown that people with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.

No matter what your knee issue, Sweeney Chiropractic can likely help. Call our Nashville location today and find out what we can do for you!
