Hi, I'm Dr. Chalk, DC

Nonsurgical treatment options for knee pain and osteoarthritis.

Are you suffering from debilitating knee pain? If so, you’re not alone. Degenerative knee conditions, such as osteoarthritis and knee injuries, can severely impact your quality of life. The good news is that surgery isn’t always the answer. At our clinic, we specialize in non-surgical treatments for knee pain, including cutting-edge therapies like stem cell therapy. In this blog post, we’ll explore the causes of knee pain, the importance of seeking non-surgical solutions, and how our customized treatment plans can provide relief for conditions like meniscus tears and bone-on-bone knee degeneration.

Understanding Degenerative Knee Pain:

Degenerative knee pain, often linked to osteoarthritis, results from the gradual breakdown of cartilage in the knee joint. This can lead to inflammation, stiffness, and discomfort, particularly during movement. While aging is a common factor in degenerative knee conditions, injuries and genetic predispositions can also contribute. As cartilage wears down, bones may rub against each other, exacerbating pain and limiting mobility.

The Risks of Cortisone Shots:

Many individuals turn to cortisone shots for temporary relief from knee pain. However, these injections carry risks, especially for those with degenerative knee conditions. Cortisone shots can accelerate cartilage breakdown over time, potentially worsening the condition and increasing the likelihood of surgery in the future. DO NOT GET A CORTISONE SHOT IN YOUR KNEE!

Non-Surgical Treatment Options:

At our clinic, we offer a range of non-surgical treatments tailored to address knee pain and promote joint health:

  1. Stem Cell Therapy for Knee Pain:
    • Stem cell injections harness the body’s natural healing abilities to repair damaged tissue in the knee joint, offering long-term relief for conditions like osteoarthritis and meniscus tears.
  2. Regenerative Medicine Injections:
    • Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections and Hyaluronic Acid (HA) injections provide cushioning and promote tissue regeneration in the knee joint, reducing inflammation and pain.
  3. Knee Decompression Therapy:
    • Our knee decompression therapy gently stretches the knee joint, relieving pressure and improving circulation to support healing.
  4. Class IV Laser Therapy:
    • Class IV laser therapy delivers targeted light energy to the knee joint, reducing inflammation and accelerating tissue repair for faster recovery.
  5. Knee Adjustments
    • We will assess and correct the biomechanical alignment of the knee joint. Many times underlying imbalance and rotation will accelerate knee degeneration and cause pain.

Customized Treatment Plans:

We understand that each patient is unique, which is why we conduct thorough orthopedic examinations and utilize advanced imaging techniques to assess the severity of knee degeneration and injuries. Based on our findings, we develop personalized treatment plans that address your specific needs and goals, whether you’re dealing with a meniscus injury or bone-on-bone knee degeneration.

Conclusion: If you do nothing, your knee will worsen over time until you are forced to get a replacement. Our non-surgical treatments offer safe and effective relief for degenerative knee conditions, allowing you to regain mobility and improve your quality of life without resorting to surgery. If you’re ready to take control of your knee health, schedule a consultation with us today. or 801-571-1338.
