Chronic knee pain affects a lot of people and the most common treatment options include drugs or surgery. At Med Plus Centers, our approach is different. Our revolutionary solutions are changing the way people view chiropractic care. Here are a few of the things that make us different.
A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO CHRONIC KNEE PAIN
We focus on the entire body with our care, even if patients complain of pain in only a specific area (more on this later). From back pain to knee pain to headaches, our team of certified professionals knows exactly how to get to the cause of the pain. We then use innovative methods to alleviate the pain in a healthy and non-invasive way. For instance, we may use pulsed electromagnetic frequency therapy (PEMFT). This therapy uses directed pulsed magnetic fields through injured tissues stimulating repair at the cellular level. It has more than 10,000 researched papers reviewing its success rate.
WE DON’T RELY ON PRESCRIPTION DRUGS
Too many times these days, doctors simply prescribe pain-killers to patients to help ease the pain without actually exploring the root cause. Treating pain is different from uncovering the cause of the pain. Understanding what causes pain can help find a more effective and permanent solution to chronic pain. We don’t believe in prescribing drugs to patients if it can be avoided. Our holistic approach helps us eliminate knee pain without relying on dangerous opioids. This can save patients from the potential reliance on the drugs. It is also more cost-effective than expensive prescription drugs.
Often times, patients are relieved to find that they do not need surgery either. Something like a simple laser therapy treatment can provide more long-lasting relief. Laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and inflamed conditions. Light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and speeds up the recovery of the damaged cells. It is a painless treatment that can last an average of 8 minutes or less.
A SYMPTOM OF A DIFFERENT PROBLEM
When patients come into our office with complaints of knee pain, it’s not always just a knee issue. Many times, the knee isn’t even the problem, and it is, in fact, a symptom of an issue in another area of the body. Sometimes the root cause of chronic knee pain is due to a misalignment of the hip or back. Unfortunately, patients may go to traditional for surgical procedures on the knee only to find that the pain is still there. We can treat these cases as well.
We use innovative chiropractic techniques to find the exact pain point within the body that is triggering the pain. Then we develop a treatment plan to safely and accurately correct it. Our patients can go back to living their healthy, pain-free life once again.
