Knee pain is a recurring issue for patients in our Nashville chiropractic clinic, and Sweeney Chiropractic has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic therapy has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For example, some individuals experience problems in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has proven that this condition responds very well to chiropractic and rather quickly, too. In fact, one paper published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that men and women with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is as a result of a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic treatment could likely help with that as well. One study found that integrating chiropractic therapy with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the issues.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to repair the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor 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. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
