Knee pain is a frequent issue for people in our Alexandria chiropractic practice, and Dr. Wagner has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For example, some people experience pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has demonstrated 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 considerable pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is because of a medial meniscus sprain, 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 necessary in order to rectify the issue, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
