MEDICINE’S TRY AT KNEE DISTRACTION WITH A DEVICE

Medical care for most complaints including knee pain is usually medication and surgery. Recently, it has devised a joint-specific distraction device that wasn’t a hit with patients due to its not allowing flexion throughout the treatment phase of 6 weeks. The researchers worked on its design a bit, but it is still being tested to see how patients take to it. (1) Well, chiropractors have a better, more acceptable way to treat the knee with distraction! It is gentle. It feels good. It doesn’t have be a visible device worn everywhere to be helpful! It doesn’t involve meds! So good.

McHenry 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 reports on 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 precisely, acute knee pain patients reported 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.
