Doesn’t Mean You Need Surgery – Alternative Therapy Approved by the FDA for Knee Arthritis Relief

Knee PainDo you have knee pain? Does it keep you from certain activities?
Do you take medication for knee pain? Do you have knee pain after exercise? Do you have difficulty going up and downstairs? Are you considering knee replacement surgery? Have you tried everything to get rid of knee pain without success? If you have answered yes to any of these questions you need to know your options.

Currently, an estimated 27 million people suffer from knee osteoarthritis, making it one of the most common causes of disability in the U.S. It is estimated by the year 2030, 72 million Americans will be at high risk for osteoarthritis. Patients with chronic joint pain often think their only option is surgery. Knee replacement surgery is indeed necessary for some people; however, there is a less invasive approach to relieving knee pain and potentially avoiding surgery. 

Causes of knee osteoarthritis

Joint misalignment

Postural imbalance

Trauma

Repetitive strain or overuse 

Abnormal gait pattern

Age

Previous knee injury

Overweight

Improper joint alignment

If you’ve been suffering from constant or intermittent knee pain that just won’t go away no matter how much ibuprofen you take—there is another option. With knee arthritis, the cartilage breaks down and wears away leaving the bones to rub together causing pain, swelling, and stiffness, and limited range of motion in affected joints.

The American Academy of Rheumatology recommends the use of Supartz for one potential treatment option for osteoarthritis of the knee. Supartz has been shown to be effective for thousands of individuals relieving their knee pain without surgery.

At the Advanced Spine & Joint Institute, their goal is to give you the best chance of preventing knee replacement surgery, which is what arthritis frequently involves if left unprotected or untreated.

With knee replacement surgery, once done, there is no turning back to a more conservative approach.
A total knee replacement is a very extreme measure to take without considering all of your options for a condition as common as knee arthritis.

Supartz is a gel like substance similar to the synovial fluid in your knees, which reduces inflammation and increases cushioning and lubrication of your knees immediately. Supartz is a purified compound, which is found naturally. This treatment protocol is used to treat the symptoms associated with arthritis.

Countless numbers of patients have experienced successful results with the Supartz treatment and are now experiencing life once again without knee pain.

“I was told I was bone on bone and needed replacement surgery. Knees are very important to me, as I am a dancer. I decided to address the problems and began injections. What a difference this is made in my life. Words cannot express how grateful I am for all that has been given back to me. Icing on the cake is I’m getting triple twirls (I’m 82 years young), which I have not done in years I highly recommend this treatment.” – Patricia M.

Why do knee injections often fail?
What makes The Advanced Spine & Joint Institute different?

We never perform blind injections
without image guidance

Video fluoroscopy is used on
all of our injections for pinpoint placement

We rarely use Cortisone,
which can have severe side effects

Most blind injections result in needle misplacement. With this much inaccuracy, it’s no wonder most people never find relief. When properly injected into the knees, Supartz helps to cushion and lubricate the knee joint, nurturing the cartilage for natural pain management. This solution helps to restore normal function to the knee, including its natural lubrication. Patients experience less pain and are able to enjoy a more active lifestyle.

The Advanced Spine & Joint Institute offers the latest therapies and technology to relieve joint pain more effectively without drugs or painful surgery. Their protocol system offers many people a safe and straightforward technique to relieve chronic joint pain. They offer a no-cost cost, no-obligation consultation where you can get all of your questions answered in a warm and friendly environment. Once complete, you will know exactly what your treatment options will be for your specific knee pain issues.
