Knee pain is a common problem for patients in our Redondo Beach chiropractic practice, and Dr. Kaden has successfully provided many of these people relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For instance, some people feel 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 considerable pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is as a result of a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article reported that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to repair the problem, and if that’s the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that people with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Kaden can likely help. Call our Redondo Beach practice today and find out what we can do for you!
