Knee pain is a frequent issue for people in our Lincoln chiropractic practice, and Dr. Kallio has successfully provided many of these people relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For example, some individuals experience pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has shown 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 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 tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case found that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, 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 rectify the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has found that people with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
