Knee Pain and Knee Arthritis Alternative Treatments
Knee arthritis/osteoarthritis is one of the most common conditions affecting the aging population. This makes alternative measures such as Regenerative Medicine, Platelet Rich Plasma, and stem cell applications very appealing
Knee arthritis or degenerative osteoarthritis include genetic components, trauma induced, and even post-surgical arthritis. Trauma and surgery combined yields often an accelerated progression of degenerative osteoarthritis. However, traditional medicine, such as surgery does not alter the progressive nature of degenerative arthritis. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, corticosteroids (cortisone), Hyaluronic acid injections, physical therapy, and knee surgery also do not alter the progression of knee degenerative osteoarthritis.
Dr. Lox often evaluates patients who have knee pain and want to avoid surgery. Contact us today for a pain-free tomorrow!
