Tucson Knee Pain Treatment
Are you contemplating surgery for your knee pain? Would you like to avoid the amputation involved in knee replacement surgery? If you can still bend your knee, we can help!
We see many patients in various stages of knee degeneration. Some patients just have some minor pain in the knee with certain activities while others have difficulty even walking. Again, if you can still bend your knee, we can help you get back to your favorite activities.
At Tucson Chiropractic Spine & Injury Center, we offer several different treatments for knee pain depending on the severity of the degeneration in your joint. If you only have minor pain with some activities, we can often get you feeling better with knee traction and hyaluronic acid injections to help lubricate the joint. If you have more serious issues, we can treat with those therapies along with Platelet Rich Plasma treatment which stimulates your body to help repair the joint.
For patients with severe knee degeneration, we use the above Tucson knee pain treatments, along with stem cell therapy, to supercharge that repair. A normal stem cell treatment contains 100,000 regenerative stem cells, but the therapies we use contain 1,000,000-10,000,000 stem cells. It’s like using stem cells on steroids!
You can read more on these therapies on our Regenerative Medicine page. The video above shows the knee traction table in use.
Knee Pain Treatments in Tucson
Treatment for knee pain varies depending on the individual's specific condition and the degree of knee degeneration. Various therapies are available to address knee pain, including:
Knee Traction: Knee traction involves the application of gentle pulling force to the leg to help alleviate pressure on the knee joint. This can provide temporary relief by reducing pain and improving mobility, particularly for certain types of knee injuries or conditions.
Hyaluronic Acid Injections: Hyaluronic acid injections, also known as viscosupplementation, involve injecting a gel-like fluid into the knee joint to supplement the natural synovial fluid. This treatment aims to improve joint lubrication, reduce inflammation, and provide pain relief, particularly for individuals with osteoarthritis.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment: PRP treatment involves using the patient's own blood to extract platelets rich in growth factors. These platelets are then injected into the knee joint to stimulate tissue regeneration, reduce inflammation, and promote healing, particularly for certain types of knee injuries and osteoarthritis.
Stem Cell Therapy: Stem cell therapy utilizes stem cells, often derived from the patient's own body, to promote tissue repair and regeneration. These cells are injected into the knee joint to encourage the growth of new, healthy tissue and reduce inflammation, providing relief for various knee conditions and injuries.
Each of these therapies offers potential benefits for managing knee pain and improving knee function. However, the suitability of each treatment depends on the specific circumstances and severity of the knee condition, as well as the individual's overall health and medical history. Schedule a consultation to determine the most appropriate treatment option your knee pain.
