Knee Pain Treatment with Chiropractic

Selden natural knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a common issue for people in our Selden chiropractic office, and Dr. BenEliyahu has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.

For instance, some people encounter pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has demonstrated 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 considerable pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

If your knee pain is as a result of a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One study 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 repair the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With Knee Problems

Research has found that people with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.

No matter what your knee issue, Dr. BenEliyahu can likely help. Call our Selden office today and find out what we can do for you!
