Not everyone will experience knee pain or discomfort in the same way, even when the causes of that knee pain are similar. The small differences in each person’s body structure, health history and genetics will play a contributing role in how they feel pain in their knee and how well they are able to deal with it.
Because of this, there are many different choices when it comes to managing knee pain. At Arrowhead Health Centers, we offer several different therapies, treatments, and pain management services. For those suffering from not only chronic knee pain, but also pain in the back, neck, and other areas of the body. Choosing a rehab program that provides the best possible results for you depends on what you’re hoping to accomplish and how you work with your rehab specialist.
Pain and Injury Management Services
We understand that there are many different types and causes of pain. Knee pain might have been caused by an old sports injury that happened when you were younger, or it might be a result of working a strenuous job for many years. The cause of the pain leads to different symptoms. At the end of the day, you want relief from these painful symptoms. We know that, which is why we are prepared to develop a specific recovery game plan with you that ensures we target the problem correctly.
Everything starts with a careful evaluation of the pain. This may include x-rays and/or MRI to determine the extent of the symptoms and to find out more about potential nerve damage. Next, our team of specialists, including physicians, chiropractors and therapists will put together a comprehensive plan to address the pain. This plan may include pain relievers, anti-inflammatory agents and muscle relaxants. Additionally, treatments such as physiotherapy, muscle therapy, spinal manipulation and exercise may be incorporated.
Keep in mind that the goal of a pain management plan is to help relieve pain as quickly and effectively as possible.
OsteoArthritis of the Knee Program
When pain management strategies are not enough, some people choose to look into our Osteoarthritis of the Knee Program. This is an entirely different approach to knee pain, which includes the following:
- Hyaluronic acid injections
- Theraciser rehabilitation
- Physical therapy
Using an advanced live motion x-ray unit, providers at Arrowhead Health Centers are able to inject the all-natural hyaluronic acid and guide it directly to problem areas. The technology involved ensures minimal pain and maximum accuracy. This hyaluronic acid acts as a lubricant and shock absorber by bonding with the joint fluid naturally present in the knee.
Next comes the theraciser rehabilitation, which enhances the effect of the hyaluronic acid injection. Throughout the surgery, a dedicated rehab specialist works with you to make certain the program is working effectively.
This FDA approved treatment results in very few side effects and is an excellent way to avoid knee replacement surgery.
No matter what knee pain symptoms you may be experiencing, Arrowhead Health Centers has a treatment for you. To learn more about the programs we offer, call us today at 623-334-4000, option 9.
