Knee pain is a frequent problem for patients in our Burton chiropractic office, and Dr. Elganainy has happily provided many of these people relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For instance, some people encounter pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has proven 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 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 caused by 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 fix the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor 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. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to 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 practice today and find out what we can do for you!
