Knee pain is a frequent problem for people in our Cary chiropractic practice, and Dr. Thomas Gugerli has happily provided many of these men and women relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For example, some patients encounter pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has confirmed that this ailment 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 significant pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is caused by a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article found that integrating 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 required in order to repair the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has found that people with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
