Knee pain is a common problem for patients in our Tulsa chiropractic practice, and Dr. Bogan has happily provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For example, some patients experience pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has proven 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 individuals with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is as a result of a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article found 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 correct 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 frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.
