Staying Active Isn’t Easy with Knee Pain

If you’re dealing with knee pain, it can be difficult to stay active. However, avoiding physical activity altogether can actually make the pain worse in the long run. Fortunately, there are exercises you can do that won’t aggravate your joints. Low-impact activities like swimming, cycling, and yoga can help keep you active without putting too much strain on your knees. Be sure to consult with a doctor or physical therapist before starting any new exercise routine. They can help you determine which exercises are safe and effective for your specific condition.

Swimming For Exercise while Struggling with Knee Pain

Swimming can be a great low-impact exercise option for those dealing with knee pain. It allows for a full-body workout without putting too much strain on the knees. However, it’s important to consult with an expert such as Dr. Lox before starting any new exercise routine to determine if swimming is safe and effective for your specific condition. Additionally, starting slowly and gradually building up the intensity and duration of your swim workouts can help prevent further knee pain or injury.

Knee Pain Treatments

There are several treatments available for knee pain, depending on the cause and severity of the pain. Some common treatments include rest, ice, compression, and elevation (also known as the RICE method), physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, and in severe cases, surgery. However, many patients want to avoid surgery if at all possible. It’s important to work with an expert in Regenerative Therapy to determine the best course of treatment for your specific condition especially if you are wanting to avoid surgery. In addition to medical treatment, lifestyle changes such as weight management and regular exercise can also help alleviate knee pain.

Regenerative Therapy for Knee Pain

Stem cell therapy is a viable treatment option for knee pain as an alternative to knee surgery and knee replacement. This treatment involves injecting stem cells into the affected area to promote healing and repair of damaged tissue. Many patients have consulted with Dr. Lox and proceeded with the treatment and have reported significant improvement in their knee pain and function after receiving stem cell therapy.
