Get Rid of Your Knee Pain Today

New research out of the University of Bristol in England reveals that 60% of those who complained of knee pain as an adolescent, continued experiencing pain 10-20 years later. This data suggests that adolescent knee pain often leads to future osteoarthritis in adulthood.

Osteoarthritis is the most common chronic condition of the joints, affecting approximately 27 million Americans. It is associated with a breakdown of cartilage in the joints and can occur in almost any joint in the body. As cartilage loses its ability to act as a shock absorber, the knee loses elasticity with overuse. Therefore, individuals who played sports in their youth are more at risk for knee pain in their teenage years and also have an increased chance of developing osteoarthritis in the future.

Up until recently, the immediate solution for osteoarthritis was invasive, but I Hate Knee Pain offers a better solution. The proven program is designed to relieve knee pain quickly and effectively, while keeping patients out of the operating room. This FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment uses an all natural substance that is injected into the knee joint using a state-of-the-art Diagnostic Imaging device. This technology allows the substance to be placed into the area surrounding the knee joint with 95% accuracy, resulting in significant knee pain relief with zero recovery time.

At Advanced Wellness Systems, we put our patients first with integrative, hands-on care. Our I Hate Knee Pain treatment program is tailored specifically to your needs so we can help you reach your health and wellness goals as quickly and effectively as possible.

Knee Surgery Not Best Solution to Relieve Pain

A recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine reveals that knee surgery combined with physical therapy provides no better relief of knee pain symptoms than physical therapy alone. The study involved participants who presented symptoms of a degenerative meniscus tear. Half of the patients underwent surgery, while the remaining participants experienced a sham procedure. The results? Patients who received the meniscus surgery reported no greater improvement than those who received the placebo procedure.

In the past, surgery was the best option to eliminate knee pain, but now there is a better alternative. Our “I HATE KNEE PAIN” program is designed to relieve knee pain quickly and effectively, while keeping our patients out of the operating room. This non-surgical treatment uses an all natural substance that is injected into the knee joint using a state-of-the-art Diagnostic Imaging device. This device allows the substance to be placed into the area surrounding the knee joint with 95% accuracy, resulting in significant knee pain relief with zero recovery time. This FDA approved procedure has revolutionized the way that knee pain is treated and prevents patients from going under the knife.

55 Foods for Arthritis and Joint Health

Millions of American suffer from arthritis. 52.5 million to be exact. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports arthritis, characterized by inflammation and loss of function in parts of the body, is a public health problem. The numbers are alarming:

  • The number of adults with arthritis is expected to increase to 67 million by 2030.
  • Although arthritis is most prevalent among adults aged 65 and older, nearly two-thirds of people with the condition are younger than 65.
  • Arthritis is the nation’s most common cause of disability and limits the activities of 22.7 million Americans.
  • Nearly half of American adults suffering from arthritis have at least one other chronic disease or condition such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure or obesity.

Diet plays a major role in joint health, and the right foods and nutrients can minimize inflammation and make managing arthritis easier.

In general, a joint-friendly diet should include fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts, legumes and healthy oils. Look for foods rich in Omega-3 and other heart-healthy fats, and Vitamins C, D and K. Limit or avoid red meat, daily, saturated fat and sugars, which all cause increases in inflammation and pain.

WAVA’s Rich Lee and Dr. Brian Paris Beat Knee Pain

WAVA Radio’s Rich Lee beat knee pain thanks to the incredible I HATE KNEE PAIN treatment. The popular morning show host, who also happens to be one of I Hate Knee Pain’s newest patients, is on air with Dr. Brian Paris talking about what he calls his “new knees.” They were achieved without painful surgery or addictive drugs.

“I truly believe this is a great opportunity for anyone who has knee pain,” says Lee, who has been living pain free since his first visit to Advanced Wellness Systems. On air, Dr. Paris  breaks down I Hate Knee Pain’s breakthrough approach.

After seeing a tremendous amount of failure in traditional treatments such as cortisone shots and surgery, Dr. Paris combined viscosupplementation, customized physical training and lifestyle changes. During viscosupplementation, a natural substance your knee already produces is injected into the joint and provides relief instantly. Once the pain is treated, training builds strength, mobility and stability in the knees.

In the video above, Lee celebrates his “graduation” from I Hate Knee Pain. It’s a commencement indeed, marked by the beginning of walking, squatting and enjoying life without knee pain. He’s even made himself available to be the Redskins’ new kicker. The possibilities are endless with “new knees.”

RPT™: Pro Golfers’ Fast Pain Relief

Helping golfers improve their swings often leaves the professionals at Lakewood Country Club feeling below par. Golf professionals Shellie Ferguson and Nicholas Keefer often experience intense pain from spending long hours teaching on the golf course. Luckily, for these pros, tee time led to RPT time, which stands for Reflexive Pattern Therapy, a breakthrough treatment for fast pain relief created by Andrew Bloch and found only at Advanced Wellness Systems.

RPT combines Western and Eastern approaches to pain relief, focusing on particular patterns within the autonomous nervous system that, when located and corrected, relieves chronic pain. This unique technique uses reflexes to fix these patterns, but instead of using a reflex hammer, Andrew uses his hands to deliver fast, pressurized contact movements to patients’ problem areas. “The movements I use evoke a reflex from the patient, causing their body to react with equal momentum,” Andrew explains, “That momentum results in immediate pain relief.”

No, he’s not exaggerating. RPT gives patients immediate relief. Take it from golf pro Shellie Ferguson, who was hardly able to stand up when she first visited Andrew at Advanced Wellness Systems. After just one session of RPT, she was able to walk out of the office pain free. “After the first therapy, I felt instant relief.”

But RPTisn’t just a one-time thing. Once the pain is alleviated, Andrew turns his focus to the somatic nervous system and equips his patients with stretches to strengthen their core for long-term relief. With RPT’s long term relief, your body will be ready for for the front nine, and the back nine.
