Knee pain is a common issue for people in our Singapore chiropractic practice, and Dr. Stakes has successfully provided many of these people relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For example, some people 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 study 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 due to a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article reported that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Clearly, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to fix the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that patients with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.
