Chiropractic Helps with Knee Pain

New York natural knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a frequent issue for patients in our New York chiropractic practice, and Dr. Valente has happily provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.

For example, some individuals experience pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has confirmed 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 considerable pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

If your knee pain is because of a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article reported that combining chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, 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, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With Knee Problems

Medical research has shown that people with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Thus, 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. Valente can likely help. Call our New York location today and find out what we can do for you!
