Knee pain is a frequent problem for people in our Burton chiropractic office, and Dr. Elganainy has happily provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic therapy has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For example, some patients deal with issues 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 study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that people 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 care could likely help with that as well. One study reported that combining chiropractic care with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the discomfort.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to rectify 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. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.
No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Elganainy can likely help. Call our Burton clinic today and find out what we can do for you!
