Spring is in full swing in the Bluegrass State! For many people, this means an increase in outdoor activities, sports and yard work. And while these activities can be beneficial to our health, they can also result in knee injuries, such as meniscal tears. All too frequently people with this type of knee injury will avoid seeking treatment because they fear that surgery will be required. Fortunately, chiropractic care for a torn meniscus is an effective non-surgical treatment for many people.
The Benefits of Seeking Chiropractic Care for a Torn Meniscus
In contrast to a surgical procedure, chiropractic care requires no time at the hospital, no anesthesia and no extensive recovery time. Rather, chiropractic care involves a series of adjustments that are undertaken within a professional outpatient medical setting. Chiropractic care requires minimal time away from your daily activities and you can return to your duties at work or home following your treatment.
What to Expect During Chiropractic Treatment
An initial visit with your chiropractor will begin with an examination of your knee, along with the upper and lower areas of your leg. Knee pain is often linked to pressure that is caused by misalignments of the bones within the knee and the other joints that connect the thigh bone to the shin bone. Accordingly, your chiropractor may screen for misalignments that exist within multiple areas of your leg. Afterward, he or she will begin a series of adjustments designed to reduce these misalignments. The goals of these adjustments are improved posture and gait and a reduction in your knee pain.
