Look around you; knee pain seems to be the most compliant of all those suffering from aches and pains. You may blame it on our sedentary lifestyles and the way we avoid all forms of physical activities and gorge on fast foods to pile on the pounds, but the fact of the matter is, there are myriad other causes of knee pain other than just obesity and lack of exercise—arthritis, bursitis, dislocation of the knee cap, infection in the area, injuries, tendonitis, a torn ligament or a cartilage, and sprains. Thankfully, knee pain is fully treatable and in most instances, invasive surgical procedures are not required.
Knee pain is an extremely painful condition and if it is a severe case, it can wreck havoc with your day-to-day life. When the customary daylong rest and repeated hot and cold pack applications fail to have effect, it is time to get in touch with us. We, at the Global Pain & Spine Clinic, have a whole host of diagnostic and treatment procedures to ascertain the root cause of your knee pain and devise customized strategies to not only alleviate it but also ensure that you return home fitter and healthier to keep aches and pain at bay.
Depending on the cause of your knee pain, we may prescribe a round of physical therapy for you. This is a combination of flexibility and strength-enhancing exercises and manual therapy, customized to suit your specific needs. This regimen will not only make your knee stronger and more supple, but will also induce your body to go into a self-healing mode and bring about a natural cure for your condition.
We might also prescribe drugs and/or shots as part of the treatment procedure. We also have podiatrists and acupuncture specialists on our board to help you on your road to recovery. So, if you have waited enough for the knee pain to subside, give us a call at 847-299-7000 to watch it vanish.
