Knee pain is a common issue for patients in our Naperville, IL chiropractic office, and Frank Bendiks, DC, PC 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 instance, some patients encounter pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has proven 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 people with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and enhanced 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 article found that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to rectify the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that people with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.
