Arctic Chiropractic, Sitkas October 2017 Healthy Newsletter



Sitka knee pain is a pain that Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka sees often. Pain medications and surgical approaches are commonly recommended while a new non-surgical chiropractic protocol is supplying quite promising results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique utilized in clinic all the time for Sitka back pain and neck pain relief - were amended for application with knee pain. They demonstrated success in easing knee pain. Overall, knee pain patients’ mean pain scores fell from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale with 10 being the worst pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. More specifically, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores fell more dramatically from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores dropped from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. None of the patients had any adverse reactions. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Listen to a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience with treating knee pain.
