How Chiropractic Care Works as an Effective, Non-Surgical Solution for Knee Pain Relief
With chiropractic care, we are able to discover the true cause of your knee pain and resolve it at the source. If you just mask the pain you feel with medication, the real reason you have sore knees won’t be addressed and it will keep returning each time the medication wears off. It’s only when you get to the underlying cause of the discomfort that you’ll experience long-lasting relief.
Chiropractic adjustments can treat your painful knees without the need for invasive knee replacement surgery or dangerous pain medication. When you have an adjustment, your body is put back into alignment, pressure is taken off important nerves, and balance is restored so you are functioning at full capacity without chronic knee pain holding you back.
Other Effective Treatments for Knee Injuries and Conditions
Our regenerative medicine treatments, including regenerative cell therapy and PRP, have also shown to be highly effective for relieving more severe knee pain due to injury or illness.
Regenerative cell therapy consists of cells that are derived from the Wharton’s jelly of donated umbilical cord tissue. After a healthy C-section birth, the cells are collected and then injected into your injured knee joint to help repair and rebuild the damaged area without the need for surgery.
The umbilical tissue is donated from prescreened mothers, and neither they nor the baby are harmed during the collection process.
The regenerative cells we use in these treatments are loaded with potent healing components that haven’t had a chance to deteriorate with age or develop an immune system, so there is little to no chance of rejection during or after the cellular treatment.
We also offer platelet-rich plasma therapy to help kickstart your body’s own natural healing process and reduce your knee pain. This treatment is also known as PRP, and is made using your own blood. After a sample is drawn, it’s spun in a centrifuge to separate the healing platelets and create a rich, golden solution. The resulting injectable liquid contains concentrated platelets with healing properties that are used for non-surgical knee pain relief.
What are Common Causes for Knee Pain?
Knee pain can be caused by a range of different issues that may be long-term and chronic or more acute.
Some of the most common causes we see include:
- Injuries like torn ligaments, cartilage or meniscus
- Sprains and strains
- Referred pain from another part of the body
Understanding the cause of knee pain is key to finding the right solution for relief. Our doctors use proven and effective treatments that get to the source of your pain rather than covering up the symptoms so you can live your life without limitations.
