Knee pain is a frequent problem for patients in our Harleysville, PA chiropractic office, and Dr. Szilagyi has happily 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 example, some people experience pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has shown 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 people with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is due to a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One study found 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 required in order to fix 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 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 recovery.
