When should I seek medical care for knee pain?

If your knee pain happens frequently and causes problems like stiffness, instability, or restricted range of motion, contact The Center for Integrative and Functional Health and Wellness as soon as possible.

Knee pain tends to get worse if untreated. It's best to seek treatment now before your knee pain becomes disabling.

How does knee pain diagnosis work?

The Center for Integrative and Functional Health and Wellness completes a thorough diagnostic evaluation to determine how your knee pain started.

Your diagnostic evaluation includes a physical exam, symptom evaluation, and lab testing to look for inflammatory and disease markers that commonly lead to pain. Your doctor might also order imaging procedures like X-rays.

How is knee pain treated?

Treating knee pain varies from person to person. Using the information from your diagnostic evaluation, your specialists at The Center for Integrative and Functional Health and Wellness create your personalized knee pain treatment plan. The goal is to eliminate the root causes of your pain.

The most common treatment approaches for knee pain include:

  • Regenerative medicine injections (platelet-rich plasma (PRP), stem cells, and others)

  • Massage
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy
