Accident & Pain Relief of St. Louis Logo

Downtown St. Louis, MO natural knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a common problem for people in our Downtown St. Louis, MO chiropractic practice, and Dr. Holland has happily provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.

For example, some people feel pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has demonstrated that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one article published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that individuals with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

If your knee pain is caused by a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One study 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 required in order to fix the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Knee Problems

Research has shown that people 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 help with your post-surgery healing.

No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Holland can likely help. Call our Downtown St. Louis, MO office today and find out what we can do for you!
