Get the knee pain relief you need with one of the following three treatments oppitions we offer. Your knee pain, no matter what the cause, is most certain to be a thing of the past!
1.Low Level Laser Therapy (“Cold Laser”)
Our first option to treat knee pain that is more minor is to utilize Low Level Laser Therapy to heal the damaged soft tissues and naturally reduce inflammation. This is sometimes called “Cold Laser” therapy because it’s non-heat producing, so it’s a very comfortable and effective option for more minor cases.
For more severe issues, especially of the tendons in the knee, we’re able with PRP therapy to stimulate dramatic healing via this type of regenerative medicine option. In PRP therapy a blood sample is taken from the patient, and the platelets (which are the cells in our blood that release growth and healing factors to an area of injury), are isolated/concentrated and injected back into the damaged area.
And if your knee condition is degenerative…even bone-on-bone…we can help! With stem cell therapy we can literally cause repair, replacement, and reconstruction of the joint cartilage. In our office we us “Mesenchymal Stem Cells”(MSC’s) which have the ability to differentiate into other cells, so the patient can actually experience cartilage regrowth within the treated joint.
Anita was in a car accident and had a lot of bruising and swelling along with pain and discomfort in her knee. During the course of her treatment with the cold laser, she was getting her mobility back and had way less swelling. It was a very simple treatment with the cold laser.
Drew had knee surgery, but still had some pain and stiffness in the knee. After about 4 weeks of cold laser treatments he started to have improvement in mobility and noticed the stiffness didn’t happen as often, and would not last as long.
Audrey was experiencing pain in her left knee and some crunching, and grinding in her left knee. She decided to start treatments with Dr. Beyer which included decompression therapy, cold laser therapy, and more. She also had her back worked on which felt great just after a couple treatments. Now, at the end of her treatment plan, Audrey is mostly pain free and can now do things she could not before.
