Maintain A Healthy Weight

When it comes to knee health, maintaining a healthy weight for your age and height is very important. Every pound of weight you lose is equal to four pounds of pressure off of your knees, so losing a mere five pounds is more like losing 20 pounds of pressure.

Exercise & Strengthen Your Thighs

If you’ve been searching for non-traumatic knee-strengthening exercises to help improve blood flow and build new muscle, swimming, cycling, and pilates are among the best activities for your knees.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Injections

A popular treatment used in plastic surgery to fill wrinkles, HA injections are FDA approved to lessen knee joint pain. Hyaluronic Acid can help regulate inflammation and provides a cushion between cartilage of the knee.

Continuous Passive Motion (CPM) Machine

Your joints are designed to move, and when they don’t, they can become stiff. A knee CPM machine will help you get back on your feet safely and quickly. CPM therapy encourages circulation, and by slowly and rhythmically bending your knee without activating your leg muscles, more nutrients can be delivered to the injured area. Our Kinetec Spectra Knee CMP is the latest in breakthrough CMP technology for knee patients, providing comfort, compliance and results.
