Have Knee Pain? Chiropractic May Help

Chiropractic Care Shown as Effective during Treatment of Knee Pain in Portland

Knee pain is a recurring problem for people in our Portland chiropractic clinic, and Dr. Helton has successfully provided many of these men and women relief. This is largely because chiropractic adjustment has been found to help with many types of knee pain.

For instance, some people experience discomfort in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has confirmed that this ailment responds very well to chiropractic and rather quickly, too. In fact, one article published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that people with osteoarthritis in their knees felt considerable pain relief and enhanced function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.

If your knee pain is due to a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic therapy could likely help with that as well. One study showed that integrating chiropractic treatment with soft tissue therapy, 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?

Research Proves Chiropractic Care Helps With Knee Injuries

Research has found that patients with low back pain often have less positive outcomes after knee surgery. Thus, dealing with your back pain through chiropractic before having a total knee arthroplasty can assist with your post-surgery recovery.

No matter what your knee issue, Dr. Helton can likely help. Call our Portland location today and find out what we can do for you!
