Knee pain is a frequent problem for people in our Humble chiropractic office, and Dr. Groneck has happily provided many of these people relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For example, some patients feel pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has confirmed 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 considerable pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is as a result of 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.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to correct the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.
