Chiropractic Helps with Knee Pain

Knee pain is a common problem for people in our Rutland chiropractic practice, and Dr. Cyr has happily provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care 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 osteoarthritis. Research has demonstrated that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that men and women 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 study found that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.

Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to repair the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With Knee Problems

Research has found that people 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 help with your post-surgery healing.

No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Cyr can likely help. Call our Rutland practice today and find out what we can do for you!
