Knee Pain Treatment with Chiropractic

Downtown St. Louis, MO natural knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a frequent issue for patients in our Downtown St. Louis, MO chiropractic office, and Dr. Holland has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.

For example, some people encounter pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. 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 individuals with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

If your knee pain is due to a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One study found that combining 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 can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With Knee Injuries

Research has found that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive results after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before 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 location today and find out what we can do for you!
