Knee pain is a frequent issue for people in our Waldorf, MD multi-disciplinary practice, and Dr. Lipsitz has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For example, some individuals experience pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has demonstrated 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 caused by a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One case reported that combining chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Total Health Medical is also accredited by the OsteoArthritis Centers of America. We provide advanced non-surgical knee pain treatment through a revolutionary new process.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to repair the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Research has shown that patients with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
