Knee pain is a frequent issue for people in our Mauldin chiropractic practice, and Dr. Izquierdo has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For example, some individuals experience pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has proven 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 men and women 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 sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article reported 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 correct the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that people with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
