Knee pain is a frequent issue for people in our Yakima, WA chiropractic office, and Dr. Bill Kroner has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For instance, some individuals experience pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has shown that this condition 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 considerable 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 article 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 necessary in order to repair 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 outcomes after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.
