How are neck, back, and knee pain treated?

Your provider discusses noninvasive, holistic treatment options with you to avoid pain medication and invasive surgery whenever possible. Examples of pain management solutions include:

Massage

Your provider uses massage techniques to apply pressure to affected areas, ease muscle tension or nerve compression responsible for neck or back pain, and enhance your body’s natural healing capability.

Physical therapy

Your doctor shows you which exercises strengthen affected joints and muscles, increase range of motion, and enhance healing after injuries associated with chronic pain.

Regenerative Medicine Therapy

Regenerative medicine involves using your body to heal itself, using naturally occurring cells and specialized fluids. Regenerative medicine injections, containing healthy cells plus blood platelets from your own blood, help restore damaged joints and enhance healing to relieve knee pain.

Heat and cold treatment

Sometimes simply applying heat or cold to affected areas relieves neck, back, and knee pain. Your provider shows you the best way to use heat or cold treatment to minimize pain and enhance your body’s natural healing ability.

Support collars and braces

If neck, back, or knee pain results from an injury, wearing support collars or braces to restrict movement helps reduce pain and prevent further tissue damage during healing.
