Knee pain is a common symptom among adults in the United States. An astounding 26 percent of all people in the United States report suffering from chronic knee pain. If we dig a little bit deeper, you may be able to understand why this number is actually larger than reported. Roughly 60 percent of all of the adults who suffer from chronic knee pain admit they will not report it to their medical professional.

Around 1/3 of all the people who said they kept silent about their knee pain did so because they feared opiate or pain killing drugs and did not want to become addicted to those during their treatment process. Have no fear! Premier Medical offers alternatives to surgery and dangerous pain killers that are available just for you.
Causes of knee pain include an untreated acute injury as well as bone issues. The knee joint is made up of the femur, fibula, tibia, patella as well as ligaments and cartilage. Injuries to any of these components as well as the tissue that is actually around the joint can trigger knee pain. Old injuries that can come back to haunt you are never fun and something that happened in your 20’s may affect you in your 40’s.

Our treatments are safe, fast and effective and we urge you to allow our trained professionals to take the time and find the root of your knee pain. Our customized treatment plans will allow us to use specific techniques that help us find where your pain stems from so that we can treat you accordingly.
Pearland Medical Options for Knee Pain:
SUPARTZ Joint Fluid Therapy:
Supartz consists of a highly purified Sodium Hyaluronate, otherwise known as Hyaluronic Acid or Hyaluronan, Hyaluronan is a natural substance found in the cartilage of joints alongside Synovial fluid (the fluid within the joints). Hyaluronan is both a shock absorber and a lubricant for your joints. Supartz therapy is done through receiving natural & pain-free injections into the knee. The injected lubricant will ease your pain and help you return to your normal activity level.
Sarapin is an anti-inflammatory derived from a naturally occurring organism called “the Pitcher plant.” It works by stopping the pain signals in the nerves of the spine where they exit the spinal column. Sarapin is administered through injections and is used to treat chronic pain by reducing inflammation and offering pain relief. Because it is natural, it has no side effects and doesn’t affect any other nerve functions or motor functions in the body
Cold Laser Therapy:
Cold Laser Therapy, otherwise known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) utilizes certain light wavelengths to interact with the tissue as a way of promoting natural healing. This treatment is used to reduce pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality. In order to perform this therapy a laser is placed over the injured area and penetrates 2-5 centimeters below the skin. This process is comparable to photosynthesis in the way that sunlight is absorbed and is converted into usable energy for your injury to heal. Cold Laser Therapy helps you reduce your healing time and offers relief by increasing intercellular metabolism in your injured tissue.
