With many therapies that embrace regenerative medicine and integrated care, the team can provide you with customized treatments using the most advanced technology. When meeting with the team, you will discuss different types of therapies that will best fit your needs. Below are five of the top treatments that will help with knee pain.
Chiropractic Care involves the manipulation of joints and the reduction of inflammation surrounding them. Their goal is to normalize your joint function and improve movement and homeostasis throughout the body. When meeting with a Chiropractor, you will discuss your pain points and the issues that have been developing. You will be adjusted, and some will be given ice and electrical stimulation to block the pain signals to the brain temporarily.
Partnering with chiropractic treatments, many also find relief with massage therapy. They will focus on the muscles, ligaments, and inflammation surrounding the knee using myofascial, deep tissue, sports, and reflexology techniques to create some relief.
Ultimate Joint Regeneration
Ultimate Joint Regeneration (UJR) Techniques utilize cartilage regeneration technology to revitalize and repair the joints' cartilage. This is an alternative to the traditional invasive knee replacement techniques that are widely used today. This protocol is an advanced treatment that works in conjunction with other types of therapies such as stem cell treatments, Platelet-Rich Plasma injection, Cold Laser therapy, and custom fit knee braces.
● Stem Cell Therapy: Stem cells are taken from other parts of the body, including adipose tissue, bone marrow, synovial tissue, etc., and injected into the damaged part of the cartilage. The stem cell injections help regenerate the lost cartilage, decrease inflammation, and pain by promoting healing in the cells and preventing further cartilage degeneration.
● Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections: This treatment takes the platelets from your blood and injects it directly into the damaged areas. Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy takes the blood's natural healing properties to help stimulate regrowth and new growth of cells, regeneration of cartilage, and reduction of future cartilage degeneration. This also is used to help relieve pain, inflammation, and improve joint function.
● Cold Laser Therapy: Also called low-level laser therapy, CLT involves a light beam that passes over pain areas between 30 and 60 seconds. This is an incredible non-drug and non-invasive alternative that has increased in popularity over the years. This therapy aims to reduce pain, treat inflammation, promote tissue regrowth, improve blood circulation, improve sensitivity to pressure, and improve joint flexibility.

Chris - experienced shoulder pains
"with the technology that you guys have here...that opened up my eyes to what treatments are available...it's just great!"
I have been to another Chiropractor before and had never gotten x-rays taken to see if my spine is ok. They did that at Infinite Wellness, he explained the x-rays to me, when I described the pain I was having, he explained why that might happen. Then he adjusted me and my pain went away immediately! I will definitely recommend them in the future, I was very impressed.
I am very pleased with the services provided here. I am definitely in less pain and growing stronger each visit. I had my first knee injection and will get my second one tomorrow. I am very excited about the outcome and my goal is to be mobile again! everyone here is very helpful and listens to you when you are not able to do a particular thing that they are suggesting. They adjust the stretches and exercises to accommodate your needs. I highly recommend this place!
There are not enough words I can say to express my sincere appreciation for the staff at Infinite Wellness. Since the day I arrived to the facility, I was welcomed with open arms. All of the treatment I received was well thought out and executed perfectly. I most definitely feel much better now than I did when I walked in for my initial consultation in April. Everyone is so nice and make you feel just like family. They greet you as soon as you walk in the door and when you leave. Smiles are always on the faces. If anyone was having a bad day, you most certainly wouldn't know it. I was treated for upper and lower back pain and my knee that was bone on bone. The remedies they used on me really did work! So if you have any type of pain in your body, go to Infinite Wellness of Kansas City. I promise you they will fix you right up! You will not be disappointed.
