Knee Pain

 

With today’s busy lifestyle, we spend a lot of time on our feet. During this time our knees carry the weight of our entire bodies which makes them vulnerable to injuries and early wear and tear. Even if you are not actively engaged in sports activities, knee pain is very common.

When we suffer from knee pain caused by

  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative changes
  • Torn ACLs or MCLs
  • Muscle tears or strains
  • Hamstring tears
  • Groin injuries
  • Other conditions or injuries

…almost all of our daily activities are affected.

Laser therapy can help 

By removing the build-up of scar tissue, improving blood circulation to the affected area, and increasing cellular energy, laser therapy can fix the underlying problem by treating the injury at its most basic and cellular level.

Laser Therapy can help reduce the inflammation and pain associated with your sore knee and can help it regain the range of motion and flexibility that it may have lost. Activities that would cause discomfort prior to Laser Therapy treatments such as going up or down stairs, walking, jogging, or even biking will become much less painful after only a few treatments.

Get back to the activities you enjoy doing, without suffering through the pain.

Knee Injuries

Knee injuries are common to the weekend warrior and elite athlete alike. Because of the many structures within the knee, many problems may arise from repetitive stress injuries to acute ligament tears/sprains.

Low intensity laser therapy restores the injured soft tissue to its normal function by improving blood supply, removing inflammation and increasing the amount of cellular energy around the injured structure.

Knee Testimonials

Arlyn B.

"I had extreme pain in both knees due to foot problems and came to see Dr. Thiel and he recommended laser. I now can walk without pain and stand on my feet for hours with no problem. I am so happy, this was a real miracle for me. Thanks so much!"

"Laser therapy has sped up my knee recovery exponentially. I incurred an ACL and meniscus injury while playing beach volleyball. I work as a fitness instructor and personal trainer so taking time off wasn't an option. My active lifestyle caused the injury to not only prevent recovery but actually worsen the condition. I was referred to Laser therapy by a client. After my first couple of treatments, I found my knee's stability to be increasing and the pain reducing. With continued treatments, I have felt drastic increases in stability, strength and range of motion. I would recommend Laser to everyone suffering from injury, pain or joint discomfort. The staff at Thiel Chiropractic has been exceptional with their help, advice, knowledge and customer service. Thank you! I'll be back next time I have an injury.

"I was having pain in my knee and major swelling. I received laser therapy on my knee and the pain and swelling went away with 4 treatments. I would recommend laser therapy to anyone that needs relief."

Kevin G.

"The difference is amazing! I dropped my left knee on concrete with a lot of force (I was running). It was swollen, black, blue, green and yellow. After 17 years of Martial Arts I knew this was a long-term injury…boy was I wrong! I expected 4-5 months before recovery and it only took 6 weeks. I have full flexibility and power back with no pain inflicted. Thank-you for this service, Markus."

Wendy D.

"I had an injury to my knee that seemed to never improve despite my efforts to rest it. It was only after I sought out laser treatment at Dr. Thiel's office that I began to see relief. With a short course of treatment I was amazed at my recovery. I am now able to continue with my very active lifestyle. Thank-you Dr. Thiel for your wonderful care and knowledgeable team! I will continue to refer my friends and family with confidence."

"Due to sports injuries, I have had knee pain for some time. I have had cartilage repair twice and my condition was getting progressively worse. I tried cortisone shots but they would only work for a short period of time. In 2007 I read about the laser therapy and decided to attend one of the seminars to obtain more information. Upon doing so I scheduled myself for the treatments. After three treatments I had noticed quite an improvement, however, I continued through the whole program. Upon completion, I was able to resume all my previous activities. In March 2009, I reinjured my knee. After several treatments, my knee is on the mend again. I would recommend this therapy to anyone who has suffered with knee pain."
