Knee pain is a common problem for patients in our Port Coquitlam chiropractic clinic, and Dr. Olson has happily provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many kinds of knee pain.
For instance, some patients deal with pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has shown that this ailment 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 because of a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic therapy could likely help with that as well. One article found that combining chiropractic adjustments with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the discomfort.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to fix the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has found that people with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. Therefore, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic prior to having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery healing.
No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Olson can likely help. Call our Port Coquitlam clinic today and find out what we can do for you!
