Knee pain is a frequent issue for people in our Humble chiropractic practice, and Dr. Groneck has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For example, some patients encounter 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 article published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that men and women with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and improved 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 found that combining 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 problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has found that patients with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
