Knee pain is a frequent problem for patients in our Massillon chiropractic practice, and Dr. Haycock has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic adjustment has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For example, some individuals feel issues in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has confirmed that this condition responds very well to chiropractic and rather quickly, too. In fact, one study 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 as a result of a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic therapy could likely help with that as well. One case showed that integrating chiropractic adjustments with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the issues.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to rectify the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that people with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes 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. Haycock can likely help. Call our Massillon practice today and find out what we can do for you!
