Have Knee Pain? Chiropractic & Osteopathic Treatments May Help

West New York natural knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a common problem for patients in our West New York office, and Dr. Marsh has successfully provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic care and osteopathic treatments help with many types of knee pain.

For example, some patients feel pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. 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 individuals with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

If your knee pain is caused by a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic and or osteopathic care could likely help with that as well. One case found 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 repair the problem, and if that's the case, your chiropractor 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 outcomes after knee surgery. So, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery recovery.

No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Marsh can likely help. Call our West New York practice today and find out what we can do for you!
