Knee Pain: A Common Obstacle for Millions
First, let’s take a look at knee pain.
The bones, cartilage, ligaments, muscles, and tendons of the knee must work together to provide stability, mobility, and functionality. This is an incredibly complex area of the body, and there is a high potential for damage - and pain - when one or more components does not work optimally. Knee pain can be the result of:
- Sprains or rips in the tendons
- Sprains or rips in the ligaments
- Joint dislocation
- Breaks or cracks in the bone
Aging, sports-related injuries, trauma, and repeated stress are all common causes of knee pain. For example, many people tear their ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) playing sports that require sudden stops and starts and quick changes of direction, like basketball or soccer. A complete or near-complete tear renders the knee unstable.
If you suffer a knee injury, you will experience pain, swelling, bruising, limited mobility, and lack of stability. Many of us try to “tough it out.” It is important, though, to seek medical treatment. Until you are seen by a physician, follow the RICE protocol: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation.
Your doctor may refer you to an orthopedic specialist; they’ll run tests and conduct scans to see what’s going on with your knee. From this information, they will recommend treatment options. These typically include:
- Non-Surgical: This is the first option pursued if the injury is not determined to be “severe.” Treatment includes the use of NSAIDs like aspirin and ibuprofen, casts or braces, physical therapy, and/or steroid injections.
- Surgical: In some cases, surgery is required to regain functionality and mobility. Thankfully, techniques have advanced significantly in recent years, and the procedures are considered “routine.” Recovery times are also shorter for many people.
There is another option to consider. Knee joint rejuvenation is a revolutionary process that works to reduce pain and treat the cause of the problem instead of merely mask its symptoms.
Relief Without Drugs or Surgery?
It is painful, and unsettling, to deal with the feeling that your knee is going to give out or cope with“bone-on-bone” pain. For those seeking relief, drugs and surgery are often the go-to protocols. There is another avenue to explore, however; one that has helped patients achieve significant results without the need for invasive surgery or high-risk pain drugs.
Knee joint rejuvenation involves knee joint decompression therapy and optimized frequency nerve restoration to provide safe and effective treatment for those with knee pain. This includes those with advanced joint arthritis and those for whom surgery failed.
Knee joint decompression therapy separates the joint space between the bottom of the femur (thigh bone) and the top of the tibia (shin bone). This creates a vacuum effect, and as we know, nature abhors a vacuum. Your body naturally fills this area with nutrient-rich fluid. At the same time, the technique gently stretches ligaments, tendons, and tissues surrounding the joint. This reduces pain, increases function, reestablishes cushioning in the knee and prompts the healing of tissue.
Optimized frequency nerve restoration works to heal the nerves involved in the knee system - a feat that NSAIDs, braces, drugs, and surgery cannot accomplish. Again, these typical treatments only mask the pain without healing the underlying cause. Knee joint rejuvenation is different and has shown tremendous efficacy rates in those with:
- Catching (feeling as if the knee will give out)
- Bone-on-bone feeling
Here’s the reality: pain drugs do not heal the issue. Their job is to stop the pain. As time goes on, you may require higher and higher doses to achieve relief. At some point, you may reach your maximum dosage, and this may not touch the pain. This is, of course, a dangerous road to travel down given the high risk of dependency.
Surgery, too, can fail, as it did for Debbie D. Holmes of Mt. Airy, North Carolina. She says, “I had a total replacement of my right knee in 2015, but it still hurt every day. And my left knee started hurting and I thought I was on the verge of another knee replacement. That is something I didn’t want to go through again… it was some of the worst pain I have ever dealt with.”
Faced with the prospect of another surgery - and the distinct possibility of yet more ongoing pain - Ms. Holmes opted for knee joint rejuvenation with Beth El Wellness & Chiropractic’s Dr. James Saeli. She reports, “I’ve come four or five times and the pain has gone away in both [knees]! I am so positive thinking now I won’t need to have my left knee operated on.”
Dr. Saeli’s knee joint rejuvenation protocol includes:
- Exam and digital X-rays
- Report of findings
- Trial treatment
Ninety-five percent of our patients feel relief after their trial treatment. If you do not, we will not accept you as a patient for this protocol. It is unlikely to be effective for you for a variety of reasons, and you can then focus on other avenues of treatment. But for the vast majority of those who complete a trial treatment, the next steps are clear - and without pain!
