Knee pain is a common issue for patients in our Lenexa chiropractic office, and Dr. Isom has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For example, some patients deal with pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has shown 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 people with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is as a result of a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic adjustments could likely help with that as well. One study reported that integrating chiropractic care 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 fix the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has found that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
