Wave Goodbye To Sore Knees
The first way to start dealing with your knee pain is by understanding it. Arthritis is inflammation of one or more of your joints from the breakdown of cartilage – this is what causes the pain, swelling, and stiffness that you may be experiencing. Any joint in the body may be affected by the disease, but it is particularly common in the knee.
Knee arthritis can make it hard to do many everyday activities, such as walking or climbing stairs. It is a major cause of lost work time and a serious disability for many people.
The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, but there are more than 100 different forms. While arthritis is mainly an adult disease, some forms affect children. Although there is no present cure for arthritis, there are many treatment options available to help manage pain and keep people staying active.
With any treatment, you need to consider both the benefits and side effects, weighing these up to make a decision to see if the treatment is the best suited to you. Some potential side effects are:
• Cartilage damage
• Death of nearby bone
• Tendon weakening or rupture
• Temporary flare of pain and inflammation in the joint
While these side effects don’t always occur, these are most of the reasons someone is suffering from knee pain in the first place and are considering these treatments. Obviously, it doesn’t seem logical that you would settle for a treatment that could give you the same side effects that you were trying to treat.
We do bring great news. There is an alternative treatment called viscosupplementation, which is a natural gel that can be used to create a buffer or shock absorption to painful arthritic knees. It is a great and safe alternative option to cortisone and its potential harmful side effects.
Viscosupplementation is approved and covered by Medicare and most major medical insurance companies, which is even better news for those of you out there looking at alternative options. Viscosupplementation has been proven an effective treatment method that is less invasive and comes with less risks. We believe the gold standard of treatment should be viscosupplementation, physical therapy, chiropractic and acupuncture. Like anything in life, you can’t rely on just one thing to be a quick fix – it’s a combination of efforts and a lifestyle change that will make you see the results you deserve.
Advocacy starts with education, this is now the start of you being able to take back control of the pain that stops you from doing the things you love and start enjoying movement.
Ask yourself, does this issue affect me daily? Am I having a hard time keeping up with the kids on our weekend walks? Am I in pain every time I work out, shoot hoops? Even if you answer yes to one of these or you only get pain some of the time. Today is the day to take back control and fight back against the pain holistically. With viscosupplementation therapy, you will find yourself back up and moving in no time – like the good old days.
