Knee pain is a frequent problem for patients in our Lincoln chiropractic office, and Dr. Kallio 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 tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has confirmed that this condition responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one paper 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 due to a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One study reported that combining 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 required in order to fix the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that people with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Therefore, 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. Kallio can likely help. Call our Lincoln practice today and find out what we can do for you!
