Have Knee Pain? Chiropractic May Help

Loveland natural knee knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a common issue for patients in our Loveland chiropractic office, and Kauffman Chiropractic has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is mostly because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.

For instance, some patients encounter pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has shown that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one article published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that individuals with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

If your knee pain is caused by a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article reported that combining 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 required in order to correct the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?

Research has found that people with low back pain often have less positive results 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, Kauffman Chiropractic can likely help. Call our Loveland office today and find out what we can do for you!
