Knee pain is a common issue for people in our Harleysville chiropractic office, and Dr. Szilagyi 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 people encounter pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has proven that this condition 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 significant 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 study reported that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, 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, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has found that patients with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.
