Knee Pain can be Debilitating (but it doesn’t have to be)


Read: Knee Pain can be Debilitating (but it doesn’t have to be)

Knee pain doesn’t just make it hard to do intense exercises like running, cycling, and skiing. It can make simple activities like walking and getting up from a seated position difficult.


Masking the Pain Can Cause Further Damage

To help you overcome debilitating knee pain, many medical professionals recommend cortisone shots or painkillers. These solutions don’t help your body heal. Rather, they mask the pain.

Our bodies feel pain for a reason. Pushing beyond those thresholds often leads to further damage. When you don’t feel the pain you’re able to keep going without anything holding you back.


Invasive Surgery Doesn’t Guarantee Results

Any time you undergo surgery, it poses serious health risks. You’re exposed to everything from anesthesia to foreign bodies. Internal scarring can occur. So too can complications, such as an allergic reaction or misstep on the part of the surgeon.


Prolotherapy Offers a Natural, Non-Invasive Solution to Knee Pain

Knee pain is often caused by the degeneration of your knee’s structures. Rather than treating your pain, prolotherapy addresses the physical deterioration at the tissue level. This helps to heal the cause of the problem.

In 2012, the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison, WI, released a study on prolotherapy, ‘Hypertonic dextrose injections (prolotherapy) for knee osteoarthritis: results of a single-arm uncontrolled study with 1-year follow-up’.

The study found:

In adults with moderate to severe symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (KOA), dextrose prolotherapy may result in safe, significant, sustained improvement of knee pain, function, and stiffness scores. Randomized multidisciplinary effectiveness trials including evaluation of potential disease modification are warranted to further assess the effects of prolotherapy for KOA.


Prolotherapy Helps Your Body Regrow Essential Tendons, Ligaments, and Muscle

Chemical messages are constantly flowing throughout your body. They help your brain communicate with the rest of your body. Prolotherapy taps into the power of these chemical messages. By injecting small irritant solutions in the affected area, you’re able to help trigger an internal response to heal that area.
