A Multi-Therapeutic Approach to Knee Pain
If you are unfortunate enough to suffer from a knee condition, you may know all too well how the story goes.
Your knee begins to hurt or is injured. You get diagnosed, maybe physical therapy is recommended. Next, if that doesn't make you worse, oral pain medications and anti-inflammatories are prescribed. Eventually, cortisone (steroids) injections are recommended. Finally, some knee surgery is recommended.
You may even be considering stem cell injections or Synvisc (rooster cone) injections.
The process I just outlined is the typical medical management of knee conditions, and though it helps a lot of people, there are non-surgical and non-invasive alternatives which you and your doctor probably are not familiar.
Therapeutic approaches that use new technology and science provide new alternatives to invasive knee pain treatments.
Some of those therapies include:
- non-thermal laser therapy
- non-surgical pulsed decompression of the knee
- pulsed electromagnetic field therapy
- peripheral nerve therapy
- consideration of your nutritional status and ability to heal
In future blog posts, I'll be going into these approaches in more detail.
If you have knee pain and are considering physical therapy, cortisone or Synvisc injections, or even meniscus surgery or knee replacement, then you may want to consider a consultation with my office to see if you are a candidate for these less invasive approaches.
