Chronic Knee Pain Symptoms
Knee pain can be frustrating, as the knee is one of the most used and most complex joints in our bodies. The knee’s stability relies on four ligaments, muscles, and joint structure. Throughout a normal day, we use this joint for various movements such as standing up from sitting, walking around, twisting, etc.
The knee is responsible for supporting our weight. Because we put our knees under such pressure, there can be damage to the muscle or cartilage. Some symptoms of this includes needing anti-inflammatory ointments or tablets to help alleviate pain. Others may need more intense medical attention with better treatments, like replacing their knee entirely.
From nagging discomfort while doing daily chores, to acute pain in the surrounding area, or feeling that it is grating when moved, there are several common symptoms of a knee injury.
Symptoms can include:
- Inflammation – Swelling around an inflamed joint with redness due to blood vessels leaking fluid into nearby tissue for healing purposes.
- Tenderness – A heightened sense of awareness about bodily tissues near injured areas.
- Instability- Knee gives way without reason, leading you fall down.
- Locking – Joints locking up, preventing movement despite your efforts at moving them.
- Feeling Grinding/Popping –A distinct feeling of tissues rubbing against each other, causing a noise, usually when the knee is bent.
- Weakness – Inability to do an activity because you feel the muscles aren’t strong enough or may fail all together.
There are 4 crucial steps to our chronic knee pain treatment
Atomic spin technology knee therapy
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) is an effective non-pharmacologic modality for the treatment of chronic pain. Chronic pain often persists due to abnormal small nerve networks that are stuck in a rut of constant inflammation or injury. Pulsed magnetic fields work by quieting these nerves and facilitating recovery from acute injuries, as well as from long term inflammatory sources, such as arthritis.
Electromagnetic Infrared Therapy
Infrared light has been scientifically proven to decrease acute and chronic pain. It does this by stimulating a cascade of many natural biological processes such as increasing metabolism in the injured tissue, production of ATP (energy), cell membrane repolarization (which reduces inflammation and edema), and preventing release of biochemicals that stimulate pain receptors. All of these result in directly relieving pain.
Advanced knee decompression
Our state-of-the art technology of the knee decompression system provides relief for individuals suffering from osteoarthritis, previous injury, failed surgery and other issues. Studies have shown that mechanical traction is better at decreasing pain than ultrasound therapy and exercise combined! With chronic knee pain causing you to miss out on important activities in your daily life, now is a great time to take back control over what you do with this innovative approach.
advanced nutrition therapy
Proper nutrition is vital for optimal tissue and joint repair. Our advanced nutritional therapies have been created to help promote the healing process by affecting inflammation within the joint, blood flow, and the availability of nitric oxide.
