Chiropractic Helps with Knee Pain

Beaverton natural knee knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a common problem for people in our Beaverton chiropractic office, and First Choice Chiropractic & Rehab PC 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 patients encounter pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has proven 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 people 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 sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case 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 necessary in order to repair the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?

Medical research has shown that patients with low back pain frequently 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, First Choice Chiropractic & Rehab PC can likely help. Call our Beaverton location today and find out what we can do for you!
