Knee Pain

Your knees are almost always busy doing something. When you are walking, they are bending repeatedly and holding up your weight. When you are sitting, they are bent. They also feel pain when you wear poor footwear.

COMMON CAUSES OF KNEE PAIN

OSTEOARTHRITIS

Your knee is an intricate system of bone and tissue that work together for you to bend your leg. Unfortunately, when you repeatedly use your knee, the components can wear out over time. This can lead to osteoarthritis, where the elastic material that covers and protects the bone (cartilage) is destroyed, causing pain, swelling, stiffness, and reduced mobility. Often times, the recommended treatment is a knee replacement, which is very invasive and requires months of painful rehab. Before you consider a knee replacement, learn what our team at West LA Medical can do for you.

INJURY

A knee injury can be serious especially if you find it hard to walk, run, participate in sports, or take the stairs.

Meniscus Tears are very common and often lead to compression of the knee joint. Surgical removal of all or some this important structure should be the last option to consider.

Ligament Tears can occur when the knee receives a sharp impact while playing sports, following an auto accident, or even due to a slip and fall injury. A tear to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) can make it difficult to extend your knee, while a tear to the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) can make it difficult to flex your knee.

NON-SURGICAL KNEE PAIN THERAPY

This is a non-invasive knee pain therapy that can help those who suffer from both acute and chronic knee pain. Mechanical traction is used to relieve pressure off the joint, which helps alleviate pain.

The goal of this decompression machine is to increase the amount of space in the joint, meaning less “bone-on-bone” movement. It also increases the volume of fluid in and around the knee, which helps reduce inflammation and increase mobility.

OTHER OPTIONS

LASER THERAPY

  

FASTER HEALING

Our laser therapy supplies therapeutic energy in the form of light, accelerating cell proliferation and growth.

Faster healing occurs because there is a faster exchange of oxygen and nutrients, and increased collagen production and cartilage deposition.

  

PAIN AND INFLAMMATION

By delivering an effective therapeutic dosage to deeper tissue, blood flow is restored to damaged areas. As the damaged area returns to a healthy state, overall function is restored and pain is relieved.

PEMF THERAPY

INCREASED METABOLISM

PEMF Therapy is the application of Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Fields to areas of pain or dysfunction. Chronic knee pain causes malfunction of the mitochondria in your cells. PEMF recharges your cells, boosting your mitochondria. This causes biochemical changes that ultimately result in an increased speed in bone and connective tissue formation.

SUPPORTS A HEALTHY JOINT

PEMF induces cellular exercise, which causes your cells to expand and contract, similarly to when you work out at the gym. This expels toxins and allow your cells to absorb nutrients, minerals and water. This helps keep a healthy level of synovial fluid in your knee joint.

INTEGRATIVE CARE

PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)

Platelet-Rich Plasma contains high levels of concentrated platelets and growth factors. Platelets are small cells involved in clotting and wound healing. It is intended to reduce pain and promote healing by stimulating new cell growth in areas of damaged tissue.

UMBILICAL CORD TISSUE

Wharton's  jelly primarily provides cushioning and structural support to the umbilical cord but also contains a high concentration of cytokines, growth factors, hyaluronic acid, and mesenchymal stem cells.
