Knee pain is a frequent problem for patients in our Alpharetta chiropractic office, and Dr. Berklich has successfully 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 people encounter pain in and around the knee tissues due to degenerative arthritis. Research has proven that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic--and rather quickly, too. In fact, one study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that men and women with osteoarthritis in their knees felt significant pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is due to a medial meniscus sprain, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article found that integrating chiropractic with soft tissue therapy, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Clearly, 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?
Medical research has found that people with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. Thus, 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. Berklich can likely help. Call our Alpharetta office today and find out what we can do for you!
