Knee pain is a common problem for people in our Jacksonville, FL chiropractic office, and Dr. Chanatry has successfully provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For instance, some people encounter pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. 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 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 due to a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One study reported that combining 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 required in order to rectify the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has found that people with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Chanatry can likely help. Call our Jacksonville, FL practice today and find out what we can do for you!
