Knee pain is a frequent issue for people in our Moon Township chiropractic practice, and Dr. Spiropoulos has successfully 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 example, some patients experience pain in and around the knee area 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 case found that combining 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 required in order to correct the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that people with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery recovery.
No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Spiropoulos can likely help. Call our Moon Township practice today and find out what we can do for you!
