Knee pain is a common issue for people in our Gresham chiropractic practice, and Dr. Ramsey has happily provided many of these people relief. This is mostly 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 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 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.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to rectify the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has found that people with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.
