Knee pain is a common problem for people in our Ronkonkoma chiropractic practice, and Dr. Priolo has happily provided many of these people relief. This is mostly because chiropractic treatment has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For instance, some people deal with pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has confirmed 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 improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is caused by a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic adjustments could likely help with that as well. One article reported that integrating chiropractic therapy with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the problems.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to rectify the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
