Living with knee pain can sometimes feel unbearable. Whether it stems from an old injury or is caused by wear and tear as you get older, it’s debilitating and downright annoying at times! There’s nothing worse than feeling that you can’t get around like you did before your knee pain started. As knees continue to weaken and cause more pain, there will always be the option of a total knee replacement. This is, of course, expensive and can lead to months of physical therapy and recovery (with no guarantee that you will return to your active lifestyle) — just the things you and your insurance company are hoping to avoid. There are other treatments, like the OsteoArthritis of the Knee program we offer here at Arrowhead Health Centers. Using an all-natural hyaluronic acid that acts as a lubricant and shock absorber, we have been able to greatly decrease the painful symptoms of knee arthritis. Not only is this treatment effective, but it is also much less strenuous on our patients than surgery.
