Knee pain is a recurring issue for people in our Lincoln chiropractic practice, and Dr. Kallio has happily provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For example, some patients feel pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has demonstrated 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 men and women with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is as a result of a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic therapy could likely help with that as well. One case found that combining chiropractic care with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the problems.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to rectify the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that patients 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 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!
