Avoid Surgery With New Technology

Knee pain and osteoarthritis can be very uncomfortable and debilitating and can lead to frustration, depression and weight gain. The knee joint can experience wear-and-tear or arthritis with thinning and irregularity of the cartilage lining and a reduction of synovial fluid within the joint. There can be inflammation of the soft tissue surrounding the joint tendons, ligaments and muscles.

The good news is that there are treatments that don’t include surgery! Longview Spine & Sports Medicine has several non-surgical options for consideration.

PRP is produced from a person’s own blood. It is a concentration of one type of cell, known as platelets, which circulate through the blood and are critical for blood clotting. Platelets and the liquid plasma portion of the blood contain many factors that are essential for cell recruitment, multiplication and specialization that are required for healing.

Trigger Point Injection Therapy

Traumeel is the medication used in trigger point therapy. This anti-inflammatory is plant-based and non-toxic and an effective option. Beware of Corticosteroids that can cause harmful side effects such as damage or weakening of tendons, cartilage or bones.
