Chiropractic Treatment of Knee Pain

Bay Shore natural knee knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a frequent problem for patients in our Bay Shore chiropractic office, and Dr. Selzer has happily provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.

For instance, some patients encounter pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has confirmed that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one paper published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that individuals 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 tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One study reported 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 necessary in order to rectify the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Knee Injuries

Research has shown that people with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. Thus, 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. Selzer can likely help. Call our Bay Shore location today and find out what we can do for you!
