Chiropractic Treatment of Knee Pain

Aloha, Beaverton natural knee knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a frequent issue for patients in our Aloha, Beaverton chiropractic office, and First Choice Chiropractic & Rehab has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.

For instance, some individuals feel pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has confirmed 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 considerable 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 article found 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 rectify the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research has found that patients 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 healing.

No matter what your knee issue, First Choice Chiropractic & Rehab can likely help. Call our Aloha, Beaverton practice today and find out what we can do for you!
