Knee pain is a common issue for people in our San Jose, CA chiropractic practice, and Drs. Hung Lam & Loan Tran has successfully provided many of these people relief. This is largely because chiropractic care has been found to help with many types of knee pain.
For example, some people experience pain in and around the knee tissues due to osteoarthritis. Research has proven that this condition 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 considerable pain relief and improved function after just two weeks of chiropractic care.
If your knee pain is as a result of a medial meniscus tear, chiropractic could likely help with that as well. One article found that combining chiropractic with soft tissue treatment, rest, ice, and compression on the affected knee helped lower the intensity of the pain.
Of course, sometimes a knee replacement surgery is required in order to rectify the problem, and if that's the case, chiropractic care can also help improve the outcome. How?
Medical research has shown that people with low back pain often have less positive results after knee surgery. Therefore, 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, Drs. Hung Lam & Loan Tran can likely help. Call our San Jose, CA office today and find out what we can do for you!
