Non-Surgical Treatment for Knee Pain: 3-Phase Knee Protocol

If you suffer from chronic knee pain and are frustrated with your inability to perform simple household tasks or participate in your favorite lifestyle activity, Dr. Rick Lambert’s 3-Phase Knee Protocol may be the treatment for you.

Our thorough process begins with a consultation, examination, and X-rays (if necessary) with a board-certified physician.

Phase 1: Reduce Joint Pain and Inflammation

We utilize a specific injection protocol to modify the body’s response to inflammatory cells present in the joint.

Phase 2: Strengthen and Stabilize

Our state-of-the-art physical therapy department will perform a thorough evaluation and utilize the most current techniques in a variety of modalities to help decrease pain, increase mobility, improve muscle strength, and enhance balance within the body.

Phase 3: Lubricate and Cushion

Particularly in patients with osteoarthritis, a critical substance in synovial fluid known as hyaluronic acid breaks down. The lack of hyaluronic acid contributes to joint pain and stiffness – but with proper expertise, it can actually be replenished. Using ultrasound-guided technology, a physician carefully and specifically guides the gel-like fluid into the joint, ensuring proper needle placement to lubricate and cushion the joint.

Additional Treatment Options for Knee Pain

In cases of poor alignment and poor joint function, we may recommend unloading joint support bracing to provide pain relief and unload asymmetrical forces during the rehabilitation phase. For some specific cases, we also recommend platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment to enhance healing.
