Knee pain is a frequent problem for patients in our Burton, MI chiropractic office, and Dr. Elganainy has successfully 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 individuals experience pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has confirmed that this condition responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one study 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 as a result of a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One study found that combining 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 correct the issue, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With Knee Problems
Research has shown that people with low back pain often 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.
No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Elganainy can likely help. Call our Burton, MI practice today and find out what we can do for you!
