Knee & Hip Pain Q & A

What commonly causes knee pain?

Your knee is vulnerable to injuries because it sustains a significant amount of movement while bearing your weight. Knee pain is often due to overuse or acute injuries, inflamed ligaments and tendons, arthritis, and damage to cartilage in your knee.

What is the cause of hip pain?

Hip pain develops from a wide range of health problems affecting the joint and its supporting soft tissues. Examples of the most common causes include:

  • A fracture caused by injury or accident
  • Compression fracture caused by osteoporosis
  • Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Hip Bursitis
  • Overuse injury
  • Hip impingement syndrome

If your hip is causing you pain, call or book an appointment online with Cutting Edge Integrative Pain Centers.  

How are knee and hip pain treated?

Dr. Landrum focuses on the whole person and develops a customized treatment to address every factor contributing to your knee or hip pain. Intra-articular injections to reduce inflammation and relieve pain, physical therapy, and minimally invasive surgery are just three examples of treatment options.

At Cutting Edge Integrative Pain Centers you also have access to today’s most advanced procedures such as regenerative medicine and COOLIEF® radiofrequency treatment.

What is COOLIEF®?

Cutting Edge Integrative Pain Centers is the only practice in 70 miles of Elkhart offering COOLIEF radiofrequency treatment.

This innovative method improves functioning and relieves chronic pain in your knees, hip and back for up to two years.

It was also cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat moderate to severe knee pain caused by osteoarthritis.  

As COOLIEF sends radiofrequency waves into pain-causing sensory nerves, it heats the nerves, which deactivates them and blocks the pain. At the same time, the device cools down with circulating water, so it treats the nerves without overheating other tissues.

What regenerative procedures are used to treat knee and hip pain?

Dr. Landrum proudly offers advanced regenerative treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapy. Your blood and adult stem cells are used for these treatments.

Dr. Landrum extracts platelets and adult stem cells, then concentrates them in the office using the latest technology to ensure optimal doses. He then injects them directly into the site of injured or diseased tissues in your knee or hip.

PRP and stem cells naturally promote healing by triggering the growth of new tissues to replace the damaged or degenerated tissues in your knees and hips.

Relieving your pain and helping you regain optimal function is Dr. Landrum’s specialty — to schedule an appointment, call Cutting Edge Integrative Pain Centers or book an appointment online.
