Carrolltown Knee Pain Relief at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation

Knee pain. Osteoarthritis. Common terms. Common conditions Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation hears about and helps! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation treats Carrolltown knee pain sufferers with the degenerative joint disorder called osteoarthritis. Joint tissue damage and pain frequently are the indications of osteoarthritis and knee pain. Carrolltown knee pain patients typically appreciate non-surgical interventions. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation offers those for knee pain as well as back, leg, neck and arm pain.


Medical care for most complaints including knee pain is usually medication and surgery. Lately, it has devised a joint-specific distraction device that was not 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’s still being checked to see how patients accept 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 valuable! 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 reports on 25 patients with knee pain (many with 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 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. 

Pain Score Drop
(1 no pain - 10 worst pain) 
# 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 
Additionally, none of them had adverse effects. (2) Does Cox Technic flexion distraction deliver knee pain relief like it does for spine pain by gapping the knee space to improve nutritional flow, lowering pressure, and reducing irritation of degenerative joints and nearby bones? A biomechanical study will one day reveal the answer, but today Carrolltown knee pain sufferers can enjoy some relief. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is very excited to share this new approach of knee pain relief with Carrolltown knee pain sufferers!
