Knee pain is a common problem for patients in our Springfield, MA chiropractic practice, and Dr. Michael Delson has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For instance, some individuals feel pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has demonstrated that this condition responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that individuals with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and improved 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 article found that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to correct the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that people 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 help with your post-surgery healing.
