Knee pain is a common issue for patients in our Bay Shore chiropractic practice, and Dr. Craig Selzer has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For instance, some individuals encounter pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has demonstrated 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 caused by a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case found 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 required in order to correct the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that patients with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Craig Selzer can likely help. Call our Bay Shore practice today and find out what we can do for you!
