What are the symptoms of knee pain?
Knee pain may be new (acute knee pain) or has been bothering you for a while (chronic knee pain.) Whether it’s on and off or constant, knee pain can be debilitating and can include severe or moderate sharp pain behind or inside the knee, throbbing pain, a pinched nerve feeling in the knee, knee pain going up or down stairs, pain when bending the knee, knee pain while walking or standing, swelling or inflammation in a variety of places in or around the knee, pain while crouching or squatting in the knee….and the list goes on and on.
What conditions of the knee can we treat?
Happily, there are many! Dr. Christian understands that when you lose your mobility, you lose your freedom and that impacts every aspect of your life. Common diagnoses we can often help include osteoarthritis (Fig.1), or the wear and tear breakdown of the knee joint, IT band syndromes and bursitis of the knee which are frequently seen in runners and other athletes that enjoy impact activities, sprains of the many ligaments of the knee including the ACL, medial or lateral collateral ligaments, patellofemoral pain and tracking issues which often create pain going up or down the stairs, knee joint pain and inflammation , tendonitis of the muscles of the thigh around the knee such as the quadriceps or hamstrings. Even conditions that sound difficult to treat like degeneration that is “bone on bone” can often be helped and your quality of life improved without prescription or OTC drugs or surgery.
Osteoarthritis causes the cartilage within a joint to break down and the underlying bone begins to change. These changes usually develop slowly and get worse over time. Osteoarthritis in the knee can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling.
Knee Decompression Therapy is believed to naturally increase Synovial Fluid inside the joint. Synovial fluid is the thick liquid that lubricates the knee joint and keeps it moving. Synovial fluid is essential to maintaining knee health.
A torn meniscus is one of the most common knee injuries. Any activity that causes you to forcefully twist or rotate your knee, especially when putting your full weight on it, can lead to a torn meniscus.
Each of your knees has two C-shaped pieces of cartilage that act like a cushion between your femur and your tibia. A torn meniscus causes pain, swelling and stiffness. In some cases, a piece of broken cartilage can break free in the knee joint, causing it to lock up or hinder the knees ability to extend.
What are non-surgical decompression treatments and how does it work?
Non-surgical knee decompression is a non-invasive system of pain relief that is a combination of mechanical traction to the knee, cold laser treatments, and gentle specific adjustments performed by Dr. Christian. Our patients have experienced increased range of motion, significant decrease or complete resolution of knee pain, decreased inflammation and accelerated re-hydration of the knee. The bottom line is that it speeds up your natural healing and even chronic knee pain is often relieved. We treat the root of the problem without drugs, or knee surgery!
