Knee Pain Relief Treatments
We Offer A Variety Of Non-Surgical Treatments For Knee Pain
Many different factors can be the cause of knee and joint pain. Whether you are recovering from a knee injury, or suffer from disorders such as osteoarthritis or gout, inflammation or cartilage loss, we are able to treat a wide range of situations involving knee pain. At Blue Diamond Physical Medicine, our specialists address each case individually, and respond with a personalized treatment plan using the most appropriate therapeutic remedies.
Traditionally, options for patients with severe knee pain have been limited to arthroscopic knee surgery to reconstruct ligament tears and damage, or possibly total knee joint replacement. Both surgeries require several months of rehab, and many risks are involved.
Epic Healthcare offers several non-surgical treatments for people suffering from knee pain due to damage to the knee meniscus, ACL or MCL, cartilage, or are facing a degenerative condition affecting the joints. Our goal is to provide every patient with the most advanced and comprehensive therapy available. With all the latest technologies in regenerative medicine under one roof, we are able to effectively treat a multitude of conditions causing knee pain, without the need for surgery.

Stem Cell Therapy
Stem Cell Therapy is an advanced therapeutic option to restore function, repair cartilage, ease knee pain, and prevent further damage to the joint. This procedure is minimally invasive, and has helped many patients avoid knee joint surgery or replacement. It takes only a few hours, and can be performed with local anesthesia. Patients recover quickly, allowing them to begin strengthening exercises soon after the procedure. With this therapy there is little risk of infection or rejection by the body, no side effects, and a very low risk of allergic reaction.
The human body is made of billions of specialized cells used to form the different components that build the organs and tissues of the body, which are constantly going through degenerative and regenerative processes. As new cells are born, stem cells are created with the unique ability to become many types of other cells. Unfortunately, this healing process can become unbalanced with age or injury, and a sufficient number of stem cells may not be available for effective healing. This procedure involves extracting reparative stem cells from the patient, and injecting concentrated amounts into the knee and affected area.
Class 4 Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
There are many non-invasive methods of pain relief out there that can eliminate discomfort without any recover time. At Blue Diamond Physical Therapy, Class 4 Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is one of the treatments we use to alleviate pain and stimulate healing in our patients. Many people find that they experience immediate results after a short laser therapy session.
Using infrared lasers with a power output of over 500 milliwatts, Class 4 Laser Therapy penetrates the affected tissues, such as muscles, ligaments and bones. Our doctors can adjust the strength of the laser according to your specific condition to get the most powerful results.
When the laser hits the tissue, this causes a chain of events that lead to the production of adenosine tri-phosphate, which the cells use for energy. This, in turn, stimulates the injured cells in order to enhance healing, improve nerve function, increase vascular activity, reduce pain and reduce inflammation. The entire process is fairly quick, taking only 5-25 minutes per session.
Supartz Joint Therapy
In the past, knee surgery and pain medicine were the only treatments available to decrease or alleviate the pain associated with osteoarthritis. Fortunately, these are no longer the only options. In fact, at Blue Diamond Physical Medicine, we offer Supartz Joint Therapy to address this serious condition and allow our patients to return to their routine activities.
With Supartz Joint Therapy, our healthcare professionals will inject a purified solution of sodium hyaluronate directly into the affected joint. Because sodium hyaluronate is a natural substance found in the body’s cartilage, this allows increases lubrication in the knee—which, in turn, relieves the pain. Injections only take a few minutes, but our patients report that the results are long lasting.
Our specialists at Epic Healthcare pride ourselves in our ability to offer each patient the best combination of holistic pain management therapies. After a complete evaluation and diagnosis has been given, we develop a custom treatment program that will fit the patient’s specific needs. We focus first on relieving the inflamed and injured areas of the knee. Once inflammation is reduced, our team can assist in rehabilitating and strengthening weakened areas to provide the strength they need to exercise and heal. This makes it possible to not only relieve pain quickly, but also maintain the results for a lifetime. Included is a session on home exercise and things to do at home to aid in recovery, strengthen the knee, and improve flexibility and physical activity.
