Knee pain is a recurring issue for patients in our Anchorage chiropractic office, and Mulholland Chiropractic Center, LLC has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic therapy has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For example, some individuals deal with discomfort 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 study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that individuals with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is due to a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic adjustments could likely help with that as well. One study showed that combining chiropractic therapy with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the issues.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to fix the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has found that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.
