Your knees are the two largest joints in your body, and they are incredibly complex. When knee pain is caused by poor alignment, muscle imbalance, or poor stabilization, knee rehabilitation may be used to build up your surrounding muscles and improve flexibility. This, in turn, takes some of the pressure off of the joint to help eliminate some to all of the discomfort.
Our healthcare team knows that all of our patients are different, which is why we customize
your rehabilitation program to address your specific needs and concerns.

When damage has occurred to a joint over a long period of time, arthritic changes can alter the mobility and function of the joint space itself. This condition, called Osteoarthritis, responds especially well to our integrative approach.
- Viscosupplementation Injections
- Knee Pain Relief Treatments
- Supartz Joint Therapy
- Hyalgan Joint Therapy
If you have osteoarthritis (OA) that affects your knees, hyaluronic acid injections could help ease your pain and stiffness. These injections help lubricate the joint and as a result, alleviate pain. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance present in the synovial fluid of your joints. Inside a normal knee, synovial fluid is produced – a thick gel-like liquid that helps cushion your joint and absorb the shock of walking, running, twisting, and turning. People with (OA) of the knee have lower levels of hyaluronic acid in their synovial fluid. Therefore, their joints are less lubricated and less able to protect the bones and cartilage from damage and wear.
Our natural knee therapy helps decrease the inflammation within the joint space and eases pain without surgery.
Viscosupplementation, a popular treatment for OA of the knee, injects hyaluronic acid (also called hyaluron and hyaluronate) into the affected knee in order to return mobility to the joint. Supplements and medication that are traditionally used to treat knee pain or arthritis can help reduce some inflammation and pain, however do not address the decreased amounts of fluid in the joint itself. The treatment consists of a series of injections given directly to your knee joints. This therapy works by improving the lubrication in your knees, your pain is then reduced through this therapy by replacing the lost synovial liquid that normally keeps the knees lubricated. When the hyaluronic acid is injected directly to your joints, you will feel a relief from pain and other bad knee symptoms and can even bring your active lifestyle back.
