Chiropractic Helps with Knee Pain

Knee pain is a frequent issue for people in our Downtown St. Louis, MO chiropractic practice, and Dr. Holland has successfully provided many of these people relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.

For instance, some individuals encounter pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has confirmed that this condition responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one article published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that men and women with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

If your knee pain is because of 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.

Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to repair the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Proves Chiropractic Helps With Knee Problems

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 before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery recovery.

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!
