Knee pain is a common issue for people in our Corvallis chiropractic office, and Dr. Lach has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For example, some patients encounter pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has shown that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one paper published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that people with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is caused by a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case reported 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 required in order to fix the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery recovery.
