Knee pain is a common issue for patients in our Yakima chiropractic practice, and Dr. Kroner has happily provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For example, some individuals encounter pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has proven that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that people with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and enhanced 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 case reported that combining chiropractic with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to rectify the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that people 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.
No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Kroner can likely help. Call our Yakima clinic today and find out what we can do for you!
