Episode Summary:

Knee pain is one of the most common complaints of Americans of all ages, according to the Mayo Clinic Health System. The pain can result from an injury, arthritis or other condition.

Our knees are significant to moving our bodies and to simply get around. It isn’t something many people think about until they are in pain.

Some of the biggest challenges I find for patients with knee or joint pain have been ways for them to describe what is causing their pain.  If you don’t understand the anatomy of you knees, its ligaments, tendons and bones, it can be complicate conversation.  Learning more and having patience to implement natural regenerative solutions, rather than a quick fixes like surgery, is a discussion many are now valuing. Always give a proven natural solution a chance first and allow your body to tap into its own resources to heal itself, when this is an option for you.

“If you’ve been told that you need surgery or something else you consider too drastic, don’t be afraid to get a second opinion.”
