If you have been nursing an old knee injury and you think that the pain you now have is from something as serious as arthritis, it's time to seek treatment. If over the counter medicine for swelling and pain isn't doing the trick and the joint is so sore it's difficult to walk some days, it's time for a change.
If you don't think you want to go under the knife and you don't want knee replacement, there are some other things that you can do to help with the knee pain. Consider the following options.
Manual Adjustment and Massage Therapy
You can get the knee, hips, and lower body adjusted from a chiropractor or physical therapist that specializes in adjusting the skeletal structure. This can help with some of the pain that you're having and can help loosen up the body and relieve tension if you are out of alignment.
The massage therapy in the muscles around the joint and also in the knee can help relax the body and aid in relieving pain. Ultrasonic pain therapy and red light treatments may also be considered for the pain that you're dealing with. Find out what the best option is for you and try to treat the problem permanently.
Stem Cell Treatments
Stem cell treatment is a natural way to restore the function of your knee and to relive the pain with the regeneration of healthy cartilage. This procedure would involve harvesting cells from bone marrow in healthy parts of the body and injecting them into your knee that is having complications.
The harvest area will be sore but this is a non-abrasive outpatient procedure for most patients. Some feel improvements just days after this is done. Talk with a stem cell specialist in your area about how this could help you.
As you age the cartilage in your joints starts to deteriorate. If you are already dealing with a knee injury and you now have difficulty doing normal daily activities because of the pain that you have, it's time to get some help for your condition. If you don't want to have your entire knee joint replaced and you think that you would be a good candidate for stem cell therapy, try this treatment option to see if it can help to restore your knee joint and to provide you better knee function and pain relief. The sooner you get seen the better.
