Knee pain is a frequent problem for patients in our Boardman chiropractic practice, and Dr. Carradine has happily provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic adjustment has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For instance, some individuals experience pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has proven 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 people with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is because of a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic care could likely help with that as well. One study reported that integrating chiropractic therapy with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the issues.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to rectify the issue, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has found that patients with low back pain frequently 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 recovery.
No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Carradine can likely help. Call our Boardman location today and find out what we can do for you!
