Knee pain is a frequent problem for people in our Parkland, FL chiropractic office, and Dr. Neil Scharf 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 example, some individuals experience pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has shown that this condition responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one article 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 due to 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 problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that patients with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
