Care through chiropractic
Your knee pain deserves safe and natural pain relief. Our approach is to stabilize your knee with conservative management without drugs or surgery whenever possible.
Knee pain is a common side effect of aging. Studies show that a growing number of middle-aged people are undergoing total knee-replacement surgery.
While this surgical technique has greatly improved over the past several decades, it is still considered an invasive, expensive surgical procedure. Fortunately, there are non-surgical treatments that could enable patients to avoid the risk of knee replacement surgery.According to recent research, chiropractic adjustments may help patients who have knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. In a recent study, patients who underwent chiropractic knee adjustments saw substantial drops in pain intensity, accompanied by fewer grinding and clicking sensations within the knee.
They also reported increased mobility and were more able to perform daily activities. Patients reported no adverse effects associated with chiropractic care. Patients involved in the study who did not receive chiropractic adjustments did not show the same improvement.
Chiropractors can help osteoarthritis patients restore normal alignment of joints, improve gait, reduce inflammation, and find activities to promote mobility and flexibility. For overweight patients, weight loss has also been shown to improve mobility and reduce knee pain. If you have osteoarthritic knee pain, a chiropractor can offer non-surgical methods to reduce pain and slow joint degeneration.
