Have Knee Pain? Chiropractic May Help
Knee pain is a frequent problem for people in our Moon Township chiropractic office, and Dr. Spiropoulos has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For instance, some people encounter pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has proven 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 people with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and enhanced 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 reported 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 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 found that people with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before 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!
