The most common causes of Knee Pain:

1. Structural Misalignment of the Sacrum
2 .Muscular Imbalance (weakness vs. overtight muscles)
3 .Dropped Arches in the Feet

Hi everyone,
Let's talk about Knee Pain . Patients often complain of knee pain interrupting their freedom to hike, run or even sit and sleep comfortably. Let me share how we treat knee pain successfully at InnerMovement without the use of drugs or surgery.

#1 The Femur bone forms the knee joint at the distal end and the Pelvic joint at the proximal end. If the pelvis is misaligned, most notably the sacrum, the femur will be misaligned at the knee joint . Often a simple Sacral adjustment can relieve knee pain 100% . Because of the treatment success we have had, we always treat knee pain first by checking the pelvis and sacrum than adjusting any imbalance found.

#2 Joint position of the knee is based entirely on the pull of the muscles attached to the knee. If the muscles are not pulling exactly evenly, the knee joint will track incorrectly and cause pain. For example, if the quads become too strong in relation to the hamstrings, there will be uneven pull on the ligaments of the knee. This will cause ligament stretching and pain that can eventually lead to tearing. Learning what muscles are too strong and which are too weak than applying targeting stretch, massage and strengthening exercises is our 2nd most commonly successful treatment for knee pain.

#3 The last line of action in the treatment of knee pain is to assess the feet. If the arches are excessively dropped (pronated) it will case a tilt in the tibial bone effecting the distal aspect of the knee joint resulting in pain. In these cases Custom Orthotics are prescribed allowing patients to comfortably resume all activities without pain.

... a cutting edge treatment for Degenerative Knee Pain by a doctor we highly recommned

What is Prolozone?
Prolozone is an oxygen and ozone, vitamin, mineral and homeopathic medicine injection technique developed and pioneered by Dr. Frank Shallenberger. It is excellent for all forms of musculoskeletal and joint pain including degenerative and arthritic knees.

How does it work?
Prolozone is derived from the Latin word "proli" which means to regenerate or rebuild, and the word ozone. Ozone is the most highly active form of oxygen that appears to powerfully promote the repair and regeneration of damaged tissues, joints, ligaments, and tendons. This can initiate healing and a permanent end to pain.
