Do You Want To Avoid Knee Surgery?
Hermitage PA The most common method your doctor will recommend to treat your knee pain is with prescription drugs that may temporarily reduce your symptoms. These drugs have names such as Celebrex, Naproxen, Oxycodone, or Percocent and are primarily anti inflammatories and pain pills. These drugs may cause you to feel uncomfortable and have a variety of harmful side effects. Chronic knee pain and arthritis
is a condition that too many seniors have been told they have to simply live with. Doctors give medications or injections to cov- er up the pain temporarily, but basically tell you your joints are worn out.
The next step is often invasive knee replacement surg erie s that are painful and require months of difficult rehab and therapy.
Even worse, a 2013 study in the New England Journal of Medi- cine found that arthroscopic knee surgery wasn't necessary in most cases. To truly repair your knee pain we must understand what is real- ly causing your problem. Every
one with arthritis knows the car- tilage that cushions their joints is wearing out...but why?
In most cases the real cause of knee pain is damage to your nervous system that causes de- creased nerve signals to the mus- cles in your legs. When the mus- cles get weak the knee joints be- gan to grind and wear out, lead- ing to the arthritis pain you're exp erie ncing right now.
The main problem is that your doctor has told you to just live with the problem or try the drugs which you don't like taking be- cause they make you feel un- comfortable. There is now a fa- cility right here in Hermitage that offers you hope without tak- ing those endless drugs with se- rious side effects. (see the spe- cial Knee Pain Severity Exami- nation at the end of this article)
In order to effectively treat your knee pain three factors must be determined. 1) What is the underlying cause? 2) How Much Joint Damage Has Been Sustained.
NOTE: Once you have sustained 85% nerve loss, there is likely nothing that we can do for you.
3) How much treatment will your condition require?
The treatment that is provided by Dr Jason Tripp D.C., BTh, ND, DCCN, DCBCN, BCIM, AAIM has three main goals:
1) Regenerative damaged cartilage in your knees 2) Take the pressure off the nerves that are damaged 3) Rejuvenate the fluid that cushions your joints.
The treatment to increase blood flow utilizes cutting edge meth- ods like Microlight SMART LASER cold laser therapy, non surgical KNEE DECOM- PRESSION therapy to take pres- sure off of irritated nerves in the knee to replenish the cushioning fluid, and a home therapy designed to rebuild damaged nerves and vessels.
The amount of treatment needed to allow the joints and nerves to fully recover varies from person to person and can only be deter- mined after a detailed neurologi- cal and orthopedic evaluation. As long as you have not sus- tained at least 85% nerve dam- age there is hope! Dr. Jason Tripp DC will do a Knee Pain Severity Examination to determine the extent of the nerve damage for only $47. This Knee Pain Severity Examination will consist of a detailed sensory evaluation, an in depth examina- tion of your knees, and a thor- ough analysis of the findings of your chronic knee pain.
