Knee pain is a frequent problem for people in our Jonesboro chiropractic practice, and Dr. Alpert has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic adjustment has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For example, some patients encounter discomfort in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has proven 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 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 care could likely help with that as well. One case found that combining chiropractic adjustments 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 necessary in order to correct the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that people with low back pain frequently have less positive results 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.
