Knee pain is a frequent issue for people in our Napa, CA chiropractic practice, and Dr. Roxann Bettencourt, DC has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For instance, some individuals feel pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has proven that this condition responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one article published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that men and women with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is as a result of a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article reported 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 necessary in order to rectify the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
