1. Laser Knee Decompression

This is the catalyst to the program. It is used primarily for moderate to severe osteoarthritis & meniscus tears. Arthritis creates a lack of space between the bones (femur & tibia) that make the knee joint. In turn, this thins our cartilage and produces pressure, pain, and inflammation.

It’s a painless and safe treatment that works by creating a pull on your knee and thus opens the joint. The pull is generated by a computerized system based on case-specific parameters that are determined by examination findings. The pull is not static as it creates an oscillatory effect to minimize spasm and create a pumping mechanism. The pull creates a negative pressure in your joint (similar to a vacuum-like effect) that draws in water and nutrients to lubricate and nourish your knee.

Simultaneously, therapeutic laser is penetrated deep into the knee joint for effective healing, pain relief, and inflammation reduction. Without opening the knee joint during decompression, the laser cannot penetrate as deep as it needs to for maximal results.

By combining these two modalities simultaneously, it creates a synergistic effect that is much greater than if only one is applied at a time.

2. Advanced Manual Therapy

Advanced Manual Therapy is another critical component of our program. It is a hands-on treatment that is used by our therapists to loosen up the specific musculature required around your knee joint. This is used to reduce the compression on your knee joint that is created by tight muscles. This is always performed prior to your decompression to allow a smooth, painless, & highly effective knee decompression session.

As your knee joint is being opened during decompression, it is a natural reaction for the muscles around your knee to “guard” or tighten in response to resist the movement. By working on releasing the musculature before your decompression session, this minimizes this “guarding mechanism” and allows a much more effective decompression of your knee joint.

This aspect of your treatment is typically performed by our in-house physiotherapists and registered massage therapists.

3. Knee-Boost Supplement Stack

This part of the program further accelerates your recovery and maintains long-term results even after your in-office treatment is complete. We all know that diet, nutrition, & natural supplementation is critically important to our joint health.

After you reach the age of 40, your body stops making optimal amounts of specific raw materials that is used to maintain adequate joint health. As a result, we get a thinning of our cartilage which leads to erosion and osteoarthritis. Some of these specific materials are not found in foods, so they have to be taken as a supplement.

We provide you with the exact supplement stack to be able to re-nourish your knee with the most effective healing and anti-inflammatory properties. We also guide you through an anti-inflammatory diet and monitor your progress. This aspect of your treatment takes your recovery to the next level.

Supplements of glucosamine sulphate that can help slow down the progression of cartilage erosion and osteoarthritis in the knee. This can also help with meniscus pain.

How Do I Know I Qualify?

We understand that each patient’s condition is unique and this is why you must qualify for laser knee decompression. You will undergo a complete physical exam and potential medical imaging to determine the exact cause of your pain. Once we confidently determine the cause of your pain, we will create a treatment protocol tailored exactly for your needs.

As a result, each patient is thoroughly examined & qualified before starting treatment. By qualifying patients to determine eligibility, we maintain a high level of success & safety.

If for whatever reason you are not a candidate for laser knee decompression, not all is lost as we would recommend the most appropriate form of care for your exact condition. This may include care in-house with our chiropractors, massage therapists, or physiotherapists.
