If you have knee or joint pain, you must look at and address these 4 components to correct the root cause of the problem.
- Instability within the muscles
Your muscles can become (1) tight and cause spasms or (2) they become weak and can’t hold the joint in the proper position. If your muscles are not firing properly, that joint is going to wear down much faster. Many people will see a physical therapist for this, but when you only address only one component, the rest of the components are left to continue to degenerate.
- Degenerative Factors
The second component is, what kind of degenerative factors are going on within that joint? We use regenerative therapy and PRP to help slow down and reverse the degenerative process that happens within our joints today.
This component is the one that is often missed today by medical doctors and physical therapists. Your nerves control every single organ, tissue, cell in your body including your muscles. Christopher Reeve’s is a good example of missing the neuro-vascular component – nerve damage caused complete shutdown of his muscles and organs. When nerves get severed – it causes muscles and organs to not work as well as they should or not work at all. If the nerves get slightly irritated, the muscles become tight or weak and don’t allow proper mechanics to happen within the joints.
- Stability of Biomechanics
The fourth component is stability of the biomechanics. The biomechanics is how that joint to move in a normal healthy motion. After years of poor biomechanics, we accelerate the wear and tear on those joints, causing accelerated degeneration in the cartilage, as well as the soft tissue continue to scar up.
