Chiropractic Helps with Knee Pain

Chiropractic Helps with Knee Pain

Knee pain is a common issue for patients in our Bay Shore chiropractic practice, and Dr. Selzer has happily provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.

For example, some people experience pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has shown 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 men and women with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant 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 study reported that combining chiropractic with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.

Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to repair the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Proves Chiropractic Helps With Knee Injuries

Medical research has found that people with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery recovery.

No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Selzer can likely help. Call our Bay Shore clinic today and find out what we can do for you!
