Does chronic knee pain keep you from being as active as you want to be? Have you been told that the only answer is surgery, painful shots, or a lifetime of medication? Think again!
We have found that non-invasive methods can relieve pain and restore a high level of function – even in many patients who have been told surgery is their only hope. We have been successful in helping our patients achieve long-term healing and relief from knee problems, whether they have suffered for a short time or for years.
After a thorough neuromuscular examination of the function of your legs, including reflexes, muscle control, balance, and alignment of your hips, lower back, and feet, we can prescribe a comprehensive therapeutic regimen for all sorts of knee issues, including:
- Cartilage damage
- Crunching and popping sounds
- Chronic knee pain
Laser Therapy for Rapid Healing of the Knee
Besides traditional therapies of knee adjustments/realignments, massage on the muscles of the knee joint, and adjustments/realignments of the hips, lumbar spine, and sacroiliac, we provide therapeutic laser therapy. This leading edge treatment using devices like the M6 Class IV Therapeutic Laser is often used in physical therapy and sports medicine with top athletes, such as the New York Yankees.
It is a pain-free method that stimulates the body’s natural healing process to repair injuries to the muscles, nerves, and joints of the knee – once and for all. Its success rate is high for returning patients to even strenuous jobs and sports activities regardless of age.
These lasers heal and reduce pain by:
- Promoting cell growth to speed healing
- Increasing blood circulation
- Stimulating nerve function
- Reducing inflammation
- Inhibiting the formation of scar tissue
- Enhancing mobility
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy
This non-surgical technology uses a machine to send magnetic pulses to the source of pain. By getting to the source rather than treating the symptom, this method can actually heal the injuries causing the pain.
One of the ways this technique works is by stimulating the body to drain fluids that accumulate in the knee from inflammation. When the fluid is safely absorbed back into the body, the pressure it has created no longer causes pain, and surgery is no longer required.
