Breakthrough Laser Knee Pain Treatment

Are you living with knee pain and arthritis?

Fort Pierce Knee PainIf so, you are likely taking prescription medications to temporarily reduce the symptoms. Sadly, the anti-inflammatory medications and pain pills cause many people to feel uncomfortable and have a variety of harmful side effects.

Once the pills stop working, the next step will be an invasive and painful knee surgery, requiring months of difficult rehab and therapy.

Is Surgery Really the Answer?

Maybe. But it should be the last resort. More and more studies show that knee surgery is both overused and ineffective.

  • Commonwealth University in Richmond (2014) concludes that one-third of knee replacements in the U.S. may be inappropriate.
  • New England Journal of Medicine (2013) reports that arthroscopic knee surgery wasn’t necessary in most cases.
  • New England Journal of Medicine (2002) reports that patients with osteoarthritis who underwent placebo arthroscopic surgery reported the same amount of pain relief as those who received the real procedure.

Getting to the Root of the Problem

To truly repair your knee pain, we need to understand what’s causing the problem. Everyone with arthritis knows the cartilage that cushions their joint is wearing out…but why?

In most cases, the real cause of knee pain is damage to your nervous system, which causes decreased nerve signals to the muscles in your legs. When the muscles get weak, the knee joints begin to grind and wear out leading to arthritis pain.
