Knee Pain Treatment with Chiropractic

Arlington natural knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a common problem for people in our Arlington chiropractic practice, and Dr. Ernst has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.

For example, some people feel pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has proven that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one paper published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that individuals with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

If your knee pain is due to a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article found that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, 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 rectify the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With Knee Problems

Medical research has shown that patients with low back pain frequently have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Therefore, 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. Ernst can likely help. Call our Arlington location today and find out what we can do for you!
