West New York natural knee knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a frequent issue for people in our West New York practice, The Osteopathic Medicine, Pain & Rehabilitation Institute and Dr. Marsh has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is mostly because osteopathic treatments and chiropractic care have been found to help with many forms of knee pain.

For instance, some patients feel pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has confirmed 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 men and women with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and improved 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 reported that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue therapy, 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 can also help improve the outcome. How?
