Knee pain is a common issue that can be caused by a variety of factors, such as arthritis, injuries, or overuse. While surgery may be necessary in some cases, there are also non-surgical options available for relieving knee pain.
Here are three modalities offered at Jackson Healing Arts that may be effective for non-surgical knee pain relief:
Regenerative medicine: This field uses the body’s own natural healing processes to repair damaged tissues. One type of regenerative medicine that may be helpful for knee pain is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP is made from a sample of the patient’s own blood that is high in platelets, which are important for healing. The PRP is injected into the affected area to stimulate the growth of new cells and promote healing.
Chiropractic: Chiropractic care is a type of alternative medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders. Chiropractors use a variety of techniques, such as spinal manipulation, massage, and exercise, to improve joint function and reduce pain. For knee pain, a chiropractor may perform adjustments to the joints in the leg and hip to alleviate pressure and improve mobility.
Physical therapy: Physical therapy is a common treatment option for knee pain that involves exercises and techniques to improve strength, flexibility, and mobility. A physical therapist will create a personalized treatment plan based on the patient’s specific needs and goals. This may include exercises to improve the range of motion in the knee, strengthening exercises for the muscles around the knee, and techniques to reduce inflammation and swelling.
Overall, non-surgical knee pain relief treatments such as regenerative medicine, chiropractic care, and physical therapy can be effective options for reducing pain and improving function.
