Have Knee Pain? Chiropractic May Help

Chiropractic Care Shown to Be Effective for Knee Patients in Arlington

Knee pain is a common problem for people in our Arlington chiropractic clinic, and Jefferson Spine & Injury Center has successfully provided many of these people relief. This is mostly because chiropractic adjustment has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.

For example, some people encounter discomfort 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 paper published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that people with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

If your knee pain is due to a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic treatment could likely help with that as well. One case found that integrating chiropractic adjustments with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the problems.

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

Research Supports Chiropractic Treatment Helps With Knee Injuries

Research has shown that people with low back pain often have less positive results 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, Jefferson Spine & Injury Center can likely help. Call our Arlington clinic today and find out what we can do for you!
