Knee pain is a common issue for patients in our Hyattsville, District Heights chiropractic practice, and Dr. Aazami has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic therapy has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For instance, some people feel pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has shown that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic and rather quickly, too. In fact, one article 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 tear, chiropractic adjustments could likely help with that as well. One case reported that combining chiropractic treatment with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the problems.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to repair the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has found that people with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.
