Traditional Medicine Fails to Provide a Safe and Long-Lasting Treatment for Knee Pain
Many approaches to this condition have followed only traditional methods and often without any lasting results. Traditional methods like Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) i.e. Tylenol, Advil, Ibuprofen, and Aleve; cortisone shots, and surgeries introduce some serious risks.
Take for example Tylenol, which is often used to fight arthritis pain. Tylenol is the leading cause of acute liver failure in the United States.1 Cortisone shots are temporary and with repeated injections they decrease joint cartilage, weaken the ligaments of the knee, and increase inflammation; and for knee replacement surgeries, 7.5% of patients have complications within 90 days, 1 in 400 people die within 30 days of the surgery, and other risks include blood clots, infections, nerve damage and artery injury.2 Those are a lot of risks to take for pain relief that for many is just temporary.
A New Approach to Treating Knee Pain
Our approach is much different and the treatment a patient receives is determined on an individualized, case by case basis because no two people are the same.
Treating knee pain successfully involves more that just one type of medication, injection, or rehabilitation. This condition is complex and therefore deserves a complex approach.
We specialize in treating chronic pain conditions like arthritis with non-invasive techniques and without medications.
We look at this condition from every angle and have designed programs that use the most advanced treatments available to help reduce and/or eliminate the patient’s pain quickly to deliver long term, lasting relief.
