Knee pain is a common issue for patients in our Rochester Hills, MI chiropractic practice, and Dr. Dalton has successfully provided many of these people relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For instance, some individuals encounter pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has proven that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one paper 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 because of a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case reported that combining 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 required in order to repair 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 results 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.
