You might not think of chiropractic when it comes to knee pain. Traditional chiropractic care did not have a lot to offer - until now!
At Brookview Chiropractic we have been using an exciting effective new therapy: MLS M6 Deep Tissue Robotic Laser. MLS Laser offers unique, non invasive relief for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, but is especially effective in treating knee pain because of its ready ability to get deep into the joint. This is for people with knee pain due to osteoarthritis, meniscus tears and the like. The dual wavelengths in the laser provide dramatic relief of knee pain and inflammation. We often see relief on the first visit!
You may have heard of Platelet Rich Plasma injections (PRP) or Stem Cell. Those are in the category Regenerative Medicine. Clinics using the M6 deep tissue robotic laser are achieving the exact same results as doing PRP injections in patients with knee pain due to osteoarthritis that are up against getting a knee replacement surgery. This gives us the ability to get the same excellent pain relieving results as doing Regenerative Medicine but without having to do the expensive injections.
Lets talk about corticosteroid injections. Disadvantage of cortisone shots is that it actually accelerates the degeneration. We know that, the orthopedic doctors know that. Anything you can only do 3 times a year is not too good for you. With the Laser we’re getting pain relief equal to cortisone injections with no negative side effects. - and that is huge. We also know that painkiller overuse has led to negative outcomes for musculoskeletal conditions. We know that from a study published in the JAAOS May 2015: points out that more than 80% of the worlds opioids are consumed in the US, and that orthopedic surgeons are the third highest prescribers of these medications, behind primary care physicians and internists. Researchers conclude that physicians must continue to treat pain but also implement strategies to battle the opioid epidemic.
That is why a growing number of clinics are utilizing a great alternative with the MLS M6 Laser for knee pain. These include certainly chiropractic clinics, and also orthopedic surgeons, podiatrists, and pain management practices. Call today for a consult 289 5669. Chances are good you are a candidate and there is no obligation and no charge for a consult if for some reason you do not go ahead with care.
