Understanding and Treating Knee Pain at Shepherd Health

Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages.

It can be the result of an injury, such as a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage, or it may be caused by medical conditions including arthritis, gout, and infections.

At Shepherd Health, we are dedicated to diagnosing the root cause of your knee pain and providing the most effective treatment options to alleviate your discomfort and restore your mobility.

Effective Treatment Options for Knee Pain

Here Are Some Causes of Knee Pain

Knee pain can emanate from a variety of sources, and understanding these causes is the first step toward effective treatment:

  • Arthritis: A common condition that causes pain and inflammation in a joint. The knee is one of the most commonly affected areas.
  • Overuse and Repetitive Use Injuries: Activities that involve repetitive motion of the knee can lead to strain and pain over time.
  • Acute Injuries: Falls, direct blows to the knee, or sudden movements that strain the knee can cause immediate pain and discomfort.
  • Underlying Medical Conditions: Conditions such as fibromyalgia can also contribute to chronic knee pain as part of their widespread impact on the body.

Effective Treatment Options for Knee Pain

At Shepherd Health, our approach to knee pain is multifaceted, employing a combination of treatment modalities to address the pain effectively and promote healing:

  • Active Release Techniques (ART): Our skilled practitioners use ART to target specific muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves that are affected, helping to alleviate pain and improve function in the knees.

  • Cold Laser Therapy: A cutting-edge treatment that works on a cellular level, cold laser therapy enhances the energy production of cells, thereby promoting healing. This non-invasive therapy increases the blood supply to damaged cells, stimulating the healing process and reducing inflammation and pain.

  • Shockwave Therapy: Another innovative treatment we offer at Shepherd Health, shockwave therapy, uses acoustic waves to stimulate healing in injured tissues. This therapy is particularly effective for chronic knee pain, encouraging natural healing processes by increasing blood flow and stimulating cell regeneration.
