Chiropractic Treatment of Knee Pain

Land O' Lakes, FL natural knee knee pain treatmentKnee pain is a common issue for people in our Land O' Lakes, FL chiropractic practice, and Dr. Michael Craven has happily provided many of these men and women relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.

For instance, some individuals feel pain in and around the knee area due to osteoarthritis. Research has proven 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 significant pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

If your knee pain is as a result of a medial meniscus sprain, 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.

Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to rectify the issue, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?

Medical research has found that people with low back pain frequently 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. Michael Craven can likely help. Call our Land O' Lakes, FL practice today and find out what we can do for you!
