Knee pain is a frequent problem for people in our Woburn & Chelmsford, MA chiropractic practice, and Dr. Ellis has happily 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 encounter pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has confirmed 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 people 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 article found that combining 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 fix the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that patients with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
