Knee pain is a common issue for people in our Parkland, FL chiropractic practice, and Dr. Scharf has happily provided many of these men and women relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For example, some individuals feel pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. 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 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 study reported 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 necessary in order to repair the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has found that people with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery healing.
