Knee Pain Treatment with Chiropractic
Knee pain is a common problem for patients in our Orange, CA chiropractic practice, and Dr. Stoyanoff has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For instance, some patients experience pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has shown 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 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 caused by a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article reported that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Of course, 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 Supports Chiropractic Helps With Knee Injuries
Research has shown that people with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.
