Knee degeneration can be quite painful and affect your quality of life as you age. Over time, your knees gradually worsen, causing pain and stiffness that can limit your range of motion and flexibility. New technology allows for the use of lasers and other treatment options that can strengthen and support the healing process. In some cases, the degeneration of the tissues can be slowed or halted, at least for a short period of time.
Causes of Knee Degeneration
Poor nutrition, lack of exercise, auto-immune disorders, sports injuries, and chronic conditions like arthritis may all lead to the degeneration of the knee and other joints. The knees bear the weight of the body with every step you take. The constant use and subsequent injuries can speed up the degeneration of the knee. Degeneration of the knee joint can lead to neuropathy and joint pain. Nerve pain can be debilitating and can impact your quality of life.
Laser Treatment Options
When it comes to spinal degeneration, hip degeneration, or knee/joint issues one of the most popular treatment options includes the use of lasers. Deep tissue robotic laser and MLS laser therapy are integral parts of regenerative medicine. When it comes to treating inflammation, nerve pain, and joint pain, the use of lasers works at the cellular level. By stimulating the growth of new cells, healthier cells are produced to replace the older, damaged cells as they die away.
Including Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care and regenerative medicine go hand in hand when caring for conditions that have to do with spinal, hip, and knee degeneration. Chiropractic care supports the body's ability to heal by returning it to a state of balance. Both chiropractic care and laser therapy support one another and provide the body with what it needs to become stronger and healthier.
