Got Knee Pain?

We at Integrated medical group understand how debilitating chronic knee pain can be.

If you’re suffering from painful or achy knees, – it’s very easy to think that it’s “just something that comes with age”, it’s a bit of “wear and tear”, or that it’s nothing and it’ll go away on its own.

You may have tried stretching, resting, heat, ice, maybe even just pushing through it – but it doesn’t seem to be getting any better!

If you are experiencing this type of knee pain, you’re not alone – we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, Knee Pain is one of THE most common problems that we see in our Defiance physical medicine clinic.

When presented with invasive and expensive options, such as knee replacement surgery and continual use of pain medications, it seems like there are no good, nor long-term solutions for your pain relief.

What Really is Knee Pain?

As one of the strongest and most complex joints in your body, your knees handle a considerable amount of strain, stress and wear and tear every day.

Not only do they hold your full body weight every time you take a step, but they also support 5x greater load every time you jog, jump or even go up stairs.

Regardless of the cause, whether from an accident, a new or old injury from years ago, or unknow reasons, all knee pain can lead to increased friction which creates continual wear-and-tear on the knee. This causes inflammation and swelling which can create more damage. This is called knee arthritis (knee joint inflammation). Over time, knee arthritis causes breakdown in that joint.

The first step is to pinpoint the exact mechanism of why your knee pain is occurring by evaluating your knee, its function, then develop a blueprint of exactly what has happened and the degree of damage.
