Knee pain. Osteoarthritis. Common terms. Common conditions
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic hears about and helps! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic treats Eugene knee pain sufferers with the degenerative
joint disorder called osteoarthritis. Joint tissue damage and pain often
are the indications of osteoarthritis and knee pain.
Eugene knee pain patients typically welcome
non-surgical interventions. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic
presents those not just for back pain and leg pain and
neck pain and arm pain but for knee pain, too.
MEDICINE’S TRY AT KNEE DISTRACTION WITH A DEVICE
Medical care for most ailments
including knee pain is usually medication and surgery. Lately,
it has devised a joint-specific distraction device that wasn’t a hit with patients due to its not allowing flexion during
the 6 weeks of treatment. The researchers worked on its
design a bit, but it is still being checked
to find out how patients accept it. (1) Well, chiropractors have a
better, more acceptable way to treat the knee with distraction! It
is soothing. It feels good. It does not have be a visible
device worn everywhere to be effective! It does not
involve meds! So good.
Eugene CHIROPRACTIC CARE
FOR KNEE PAIN RELIEF WITH THE HANDS
Knee pain treated with chiropractic
flexion distraction principles offers knee pain sufferers
hope. A new study just published discusses outcomes for
25 patients with knee pain (many due to osteoarthritis, some acute,
some chronic, even some post-knee replacement with continued knee pain) treated with
chiropractic flexion distraction. Overall knee pain patients reported
pain drops from 7.7 to 1.8 (1 [no pain] –
10 [worst pain]) in a mean of 5.3 treatments over 3 weeks. More specifically,
acute knee pain patients had pain drops from 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8
treatments in 2.4 weeks. And chronic knee pain patients reported
pain drops from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks.
Pain Score Drop
(1 no pain - 10 worst pain)
|# of Treatments||# of Weeks|
|Overall|| 7.7 to 1.8||5.3||3|
|Acute|| 8.1 to 1.1||4.8 ||2.4 |
|Chronic|| 7.5 to 2.2||5.4 ||3.3 |
As a bonus,
none of them experienced adverse effects
(2) Does Cox Technic flexion distraction deliver knee pain
relief like it does for spine pain by gapping the knee space to enhance
nutritional flow, lowering pressure, and decreasing
rubbing of degenerative joints and nearby
A biomechanical study will one day uncover the answer, but for now
Eugene knee pain sufferers can appreciate some relief. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic
is very excited to share this new approach
of knee pain relief with Eugene knee pain sufferers!
