Knee pain is a common issue for patients in our Sandusky chiropractic office, and Dr. Shaw has happily provided many of these men and women relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For example, some people feel pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has demonstrated 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 people 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 sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article found that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to rectify the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown 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 healing.
No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Shaw can likely help. Call our Sandusky location today and find out what we can do for you!
