Knee pain is a frequent problem for patients in our West Palm Beach chiropractic office, and Dr. Dennis 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 individuals encounter pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has demonstrated 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 considerable 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 integrating chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to correct 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 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.
No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Dennis can likely help. Call our West Palm Beach location today and find out what we can do for you!
