Knee pain is a debilitating condition that can deteriorate the protective fluid surrounding the knee joints. This can lead to more serious conditions including osteoarthritis. Increased activity levels can continue to reduce the joints’ protective cartilage and fluid, and osteoarthritis only speeds up the degeneration that occurs naturally over time.
Symptoms stemming from knee pain or osteoarthritis include:
- Chronic Pain
- Muscle weakness
- Reduced mobility
While surgery is generally an option for people experiencing debilitating knee pain or osteoarthritis, many people prefer treatments other than surgery for the following reasons:
- Surgery leads to a long rehabilitation time
- Surgery is not guaranteed to fix the issue permanently
- Out-of-pocket cost
- Risks involved with surgery
For patients not wanting to take part in knee surgery, Gateway Rehab offers a non-surgical treatment option that can eliminate knee pain. This treatment is called Supartz Joint Therapy. This treatment injects the protective fluids into the joint or bone and helps to alleviate the painful symptoms and return normal functionality.
