The non-surgical specialists at Reflex will recommend treatments that will reduce inflammation, improve the quality of your joint (synovial) fluid, and keep knee pain under control. They will also recommend a plan that will optimize knee biomechanics and improve alignment and mobility. Our comprehensive approach to knee health helps us to effectively alleviate your knee pain without surgery.
PRP is a state-of-the-art treatment, in which the body’s potent growth factors, stored in platelets, are concentrated and re-injected into a damaged or injured area. Patients typically undergo 1-2 PRP treatments 6-8 weeks apart to reduce pain and inflammation, promote healing, and improve joint function and mobility.
Stem Cell Transplantation is the newest regenerative treatment available. This procedure uses the body’s own regenerative mechanisms to not only slow down the inflammation process but also potentially heal damaged tissue through cartilage repair. This breakthrough technology involves harvesting stem cells from one part of the body and transplanting them to another.
Joint fluid therapy, also known as viscosupplementation, is a non-invasive procedure for knee osteoarthritis that relieves pain and increases joint mobility by helping to improve the quality of the joint (synovial) fluid in the knee. We’ll perform a series of injections to help cushion, lubricate, and protect your knees. Studies have shown that most patients can achieve a significant reduction in pain for up to 6 months after a single series of treatments.
Braces can be indispensable tools for supporting your knees. They help improve the alignment of your knee and protect the areas of greatest damage inside the joint. A knee brace can improve your gait and increase mobility.
When a person is in pain, he or she will stand and walk differently to avoid pain (compensation). It is essential to correct compensation patterns since they can lead to increased knee problems as well as negatively impact other areas in the kinetic chain (e.g., hip, back, ankle). By rebuilding muscle strength to more optimally support the knee, less stress is put on the joint which results in greater pain relief and long-term knee health. We are proud to have highly-qualified and experienced certified physical therapists who understand the nuances of knee biomechanics and know how to help people achieve their functional goals.
Complete relief from knee osteoarthritis is not always possible with traditional medications alone. That’s why Reflex offers a variety of supplement solutions to help support your joints and promote joint health.
