October 24, 2017

Knee pain. Osteoarthritis. Common terms. Common conditions Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers hears about and helps! Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers offers treatment to Baton Rouge knee pain sufferers with the degenerative joint disorder called osteoarthritis. Joint tissue damage and pain commonly are the indications of osteoarthritis and knee pain. Baton Rouge knee pain patients typically value interventions that keep them from surgery. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers offers those not just for back pain and leg pain and neck pain and arm pain but for knee pain, too.


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


Knee pain treated with chiropractic flexion distraction principles provides 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 stated 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 reported pain drops from 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. And chronic knee pain patients noted pain drops from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks.

# of Treatments# of Weeks
Overall 7.7 to 1.85.33
Acute 8.1 to 1.14.8 2.4 
Chronic 7.5 to 2.25.4 3.3 
As a bonus, no one reported adverse side-effects. (2) Does Cox Technic flexion distraction deliver knee pain relief like it does for spine pain by opening the knee space to enhance nutritional flow, lowering pressure, and decreasing irritation of degenerative joints and nearby bones? The biomechanics will one day be uncovered, but for now Baton Rouge knee pain sufferers can appreciate some relief. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is very thrilled to provide this new method of knee pain relief with Baton Rouge knee pain sufferers!
