Knee Injuries

Knee Pain and treatment

The Knee is a complex joint and as a result often gets injured in some way, whether through impact or wear and tear. The nature of the joint and the range of loading make injuries numerous and sometimes difficult to isolate what is wrong. The knee has 4 ligaments holding it together  Pain on the outside of the knee or lateral pain can be from the Lateral collateral ligament (LCL), the opposite Pain on the inside of knee can be from the main ligament Medial collateral ligament (MCL). Injuries to these ligaments are usually from impact or twisting along with repetitive strain from a particular movement. These ligaments support the knee in sideways movement and are commonly damaged in racket sports and cricket from explosive movement, diving or slipping.

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the most commonly injured knee ligament. It connects the thigh bone to the shin bone. Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) also links the thigh bone to the shin bone in the knee. (It’s rarely injured except in car accidents).

I treat many clients with knee ligament damage and post surgery particularly ACL reconstruction.

The knee joint takes a pounding through life as approximately 3 times your body weight is transmitted through the knee every step running! This coupled with less activity and been in a sitting position causes the muscles to reduce in size and put more pressure on the actual joint and ligaments.

A common problem I treat is osteoarthritis of the knee in its various stages. Initial osteoarthritis diagnosis can be halted from progressing at a significant pace, later stage osteoarthritis interx treatment is extremely effective in pain reduction allowing for greater mobility.

InterX Treatment is exceptionally good at accelerating post knee surgery recovery especially in pain relief and mobility. I offer a six week intensive package to allow people to get full range of movement and be back to normal fast

 

 

How does InterX Treatment Work

Hello I am Stephen from InterX Pain Clinic and I target your Pain!

I treat many different clients in pain from Arthritis to migraines, post surgery to sciatica and most acute and chronic or persistent pain in between

How do I treat people exactly?

Well I use a Medical device to stop pain and accelerate healing. The medical device works through to skin to connect to the body’s nervous system and stimulates the release of natural pain killing chemicals. In addition healing and repair chemicals are released along with the accelerated removal of waste products and cells that cause scaring. This stimulation has a profound effect and the majority of cases can be helped with 5 to 8 treatments.

In addition to InterX Therapy I use physical mobility exercises to help restore movement and to make sure that the area is healing. I use the medical device on the spine to activate the nervous system and at the site of pain and corresponding trigger points. With Chronic pain as outlined below the body gets caught in the pain – inflammation cycle and it becomes background pain and there all the time. The Inter X device works with the body to reset the cycle so the healing can take place and the pain goes.

After one session of InterX Treatment of approximately an hour the same client with reduced pain and improved mobility. Please note the Hot spot of Pain is gone.

 

The InterX Treatment is clinically proven to reduce pain and accelerate healing. I treat many clients who have worked with more traditional treatments in the past, mainly chiropractors, physiotherapists and osteopaths. A change of direction can be a good course of action
