According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 700,000 knee replacement procedures are performed annually in the United States. “Knee arthroplasty” is commonly performed to relieve pain and restore function to osteoarthritic (“wear and tear” arthritis) knee joints. While no one questions the value and effectiveness of total knee replacement surgery in cases where the knee joint is damaged beyond repair, surgery should be undertaken only as a last resort. Until that point is reached, research shows that chiropractic knee adjustments can benefit people suffering from osteoarthritic knee pain by decreasing pain intensity and lessening clicking and grinding sensations. When the first signs of knee pain occur, chiropractic treatment may help forestall surgery.

P.S. Chiropractic treatment can help relieve pain and limited function in patients with osteoarthritic knees by restoring normal joint alignment and gait, reducing inflammation, and recommending activities that promote flexibility and mobility.
