Knee Pain Diagnosis, Treatment & Pain Relief
Serving Wilmington, Hampstead, Leland & Surrounding Areas in NC
If you’re suffering from chronic knee pain, you know how debilitating it can be. Your knees are integral body parts that are needed for virtually every type of movement, so chronic pain means you ‘re suffering from sunup to sundown, and often even during the night once the fatigue and inflammation sets in.
Spine and Joint Institute of Wilmington Gets To The Root Of Knee Pain
We’re here to tell you that you don’t have to suffer anymore. At Spine and Joint Institute of Wilmington, knee pain is one of the most common conditions we treat. While many doctors will attempt to treat knee pain with prescription medication, you should know that this route only masks the symptoms temporarily. If you are ready to live a truly pain-free life, the key is to identify and treat the root cause of the pain.
Non-Invasive, Non-Surgical Treatments
Most of our knee patients come to us at their wit’s end. They’ve been to doctors, specialists, surgeons, and maybe even tried acupuncture and other holistic treatments with no success. They have been told that their only option is surgery. However, we believe that surgery is an absolute last resort. It is our goal to treat your knee condition and get you relief from your chronic pain through a combination of non-invasive and non-surgical treatments that may include:
- Knee and hip alignments
- Physical therapy
- Cold Laser Therapy
- Origin/Insertion therapy on the quadriceps, hamstrings, and calf muscles
- Sacroiliac joint treatment
What To Expect From Your Consultation
When you schedule a consultation with Spine and Joint Institute of Wilmington, we will take the time to get your complete medical history, conduct a thorough physical exam and schedule any additional diagnostics needed to properly identify your knee condition.
While you may have been told that a more obvious condition like arthritis is causing your knee pain, if you have not been able to find relief, it may be that there is an underlying cause within the nerve function of your lower extremities, or a condition affecting your reflexes, muscle control, balance, hip and sacroiliac function, or even your feet. While this may sound counterintuitive to think your knees are not actually the problem, think about the function of your knees in the bigger picture: anything that causes you to walk, bend or carry your weight differently all has an impact on how your knees function.
At Spine and Joint Institute of Wilmington, our policy is 100% transparency – we believe in open and honest communication with patients because we believe the best way for you to heal is for you to be well-informed and fully engaged with your treatment plan. If at any time we don’t think our treatment plan is going to help you, we will discuss it with you and offer recommendations for other treatment options, which may include surgery.
