Have Knee Pain? Chiropractic May Help

Woburn natural knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a frequent issue for people in our Woburn chiropractic office, and Dr. Ellis has happily provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.

For example, some individuals encounter pain in and around the knee tissues 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 as a result of a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article found that integrating 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 correct the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Proves Chiropractic Helps With Knee Injuries

Research has shown that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.

No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Ellis can likely help. Call our Woburn office today and find out what we can do for you!
