Knee pain is a common problem for people in our Stacy, MN chiropractic office, and Dr. Andrew Ulvin has happily provided many of these folks relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many forms of knee pain.
For instance, some people experience pain in and around the knee area due to degenerative arthritis. Research has confirmed 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 considerable pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is caused by a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One study reported that combining chiropractic with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is necessary in order to fix the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic can also help improve the outcome. How?
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 before having a total knee arthroplasty can help with your post-surgery recovery.
No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Andrew Ulvin can likely help. Call our Stacy, MN practice today and find out what we can do for you!
