How Much Do You Love Your Knee Pain? - Not 😖

Do you ever stop to appreciate the incredible work your knees do for you every day? These unsung heroes bear the weight the most wight of the bod when upright, enabling us to walk, run, and jump. Yet, knee pain is a common woe that many of us face. Before you consider going under the knife, injecting cortisone or stem cells for relief, let's explore why a little extra love and attention might be the key to keeping your knees happy and healthy.

Medical procedures like knee surgeries may promise quick fixes, but they come with their fair share of drawbacks. From extended recovery periods to potential complications, surgery isn't always the golden ticket to pain-free knees. In a recent study by the Radiological Society of North America presented that cortisone increases the degenerative state of the knee 2- or 3-years post injection. So, let's consider a few alternatives that prioritize your knee's well-being without the need for drastic measures.

Enter the world of conservative therapies, where Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), Shockwave Therapy, Orthotics and Physical Rehabilitation take the spotlight. These non-invasive treatments offer a gentler approach, promoting healing without the risks associated with surgery.

LLLT, also known as cold laser therapy, utilizes low-intensity lasers to stimulate cell growth and reduce inflammation. Shockwave therapy, on the other hand, uses percussive waves to enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process. Both these therapies boast minimal to no side effects, making them attractive options for those wary of surgical risks.

Physical rehabilitation, often overlooked, plays a pivotal role in strengthening the muscles surrounding the knee. Targeted exercises and stretches can alleviate pain and improve mobility, offering a holistic and sustainable solution.

And finally, studies have also shown that when orthotics are used to stop the flattening of the foot and subsequent rotation of the lower leg, a 2003 study by Gross showed a 67% decrease in knee pain using a custom orthotic.

So, before you opt for the operating table or injections, consider showering your knees with some TLC through conservative care. After all, a little love goes a long way in keeping your knees dancing through life pain-free!
