Knee pain is a common issue for people in our Rutland chiropractic office, and Dr. Cyr has happily provided many of these people relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For instance, some patients experience pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has shown that this condition responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that individuals with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is due to a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case reported 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 issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has found that people 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 healing.
