St. Clair MI – Have you had your knee replaced and still isn’t acting right? Have you been suffering from chronic knee pain or arthritis? Do you have any of the following conditions: aching knee pain, a grinding sensation “bone on bone” arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, cartilage damage or weakness in your knees and legs? Would you like to regain your life again and get back to enjoying simple daily activities like walking, shopping, golfing or even just standing without debilitating pain in your knees? Many seniors have been told that knee surgery is their only option, and that they have simply “worn out” their joints. It’s just not that simple. The problem is that many seniors got the knee surgery and wished that they hadn’t. They report having the same pain or more problems after the surgery then they had before surgery.
There are five primary reasons why a knee implant fails, however we only focus on two:
- Instability: A sensation of the knee “giving away” may mean that the soft- tissue surrounding the knee is too weak to support standing and walking. Improperly placed implants may also cause instability. Stiffness: Loss of range of motion which causes pain and a functional deficit.
To truly repair your knee pain we must understand what is really causing your problems. Everyone with arthritis knows the cartilage that cushions their joints is wearing out…but why? Everyone with a knee replacement that still has pain wonders why that is.
The easiest way to explain why this happens is to think of the alignment on your car. If you have one tire on your vehicle that is constantly wearing out, you can patch that tire (which is what the shots in your knees are like), and you can even replace the tire (like knee surgery) but what happens if you never fix the car’s alignment? You’re exactly right, the tire just keeps wearing out unevenly and you’re back at square one.
Now what does this have to do with your knee pain from arthritis or after a knee replacement? The alignment or stability in your knees is maintained by the muscles that surround the joint. These muscles are fed by nerves that come from your spine (specifically the L4 and L5 levels). The problem is that as we age these nerves can be compressed by bulging or herniated discs, a condition known as spinal stenosis or degenerative disc disease.
When this happens the muscles that protect the knee don’t do their job properly, causing increased stress on the joints. This is why medications, therapy and injections in the knees often only provide temporary relief – they aren’t getting to the real cause of the problem. This is also why so many people suffering with chronic knee pain or pain after knee replacement tell us that their legs feel weaker than they use to or that their knee will just “give out on them” sometimes. Now you understand why!
I started coming to Dr. Morgan because I was having back, knee and headache problems. I was impressed on how smart and knowledgeable Dr. Morgan is. He thoroughly explained each x-ray and MRI so that I could understand what was going on in my body. My knee pain is completely gone. I am feeling much better since I started my treatment here. The staff is always so friendly, and the office is clean and welcoming. - Megan of Lexington See more patient at: https://acmsclinics. com/testimonials/
How can we help?
At ACMS, we use a combination of breakthrough technologies to treat chronic knee pain safely before and after knee replacement surgery without more drugs or additional surgeries. Our treatments are outpatient, nonsurgical procedures that significantly decrease pain and inflammation, improves strength, balance and range of motion flexibility. Even more important is that our protocol have been shown to regenerate the damaged cartilage on the surfaces of arthritic joints. The protocol accelerates the growth of the cartilage cells, helping the knees glide more smoothly with less pain. The amount of treatment needed to allow the joints and nerves to fully recover varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation.
Schedule a Knee Pain Severity Examination with Dr. Morgan to determine the extent of the joint and/or nerve damage for only $89.
Bring your x-rays or MRIs to your appointment. If medically necessary, we will order a special test called a weight bearing X-Ray that allows us to see how your knee joints or knee replacement perform under the force of gravity and pinpoint the problem area. We are the only facilities in St. Clair with this combination of technologies in our office! Don’t drive an hour one to Macomb, Shelby or Utica for this care when you can be successfully treated close to home.
Call 810-420-0801 to make an appointment with Dr. Morgan to determine if your arthritic bone on bone knee pain or post-surgical knee can be treated.
