Knee pain is a common problem for patients in our Yakima chiropractic office, and Michael J. Covington DC-PS has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For example, some people feel 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 article 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 caused by a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article found that integrating 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 repair the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery recovery.
