Knee Pain Treatment with Chiropractic

Knee Pain Treatment with Chiropractic

Knee pain is a common problem for people in our Fairfax chiropractic office, and Dr. Zapf has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.

For instance, some individuals experience 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 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 because of a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article reported that combining chiropractic with soft tissue therapy, 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?

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Knee Injuries

Medical research has found that people with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. Thus, 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. Zapf can likely help. Call our Fairfax practice today and find out what we can do for you!
