Knee pain is a frequent problem for people in our Memphis chiropractic office, and Dr. Amodeo has successfully provided many of these folks 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 area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has demonstrated that this condition responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one paper 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 could likely help with that as well. One case found that combining chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, 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, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has found that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery recovery.
