Active Health in Jacksonville, Florida, offers a diverse range of treatments and strategies for knee pain management. Our team will determine a precise treatment program for each respective patient based on assessments and testing.
Knee Pain is one of the most common sources of pain for people. Although knee pain can be attributed to underlying diseases, it can also occur due to injuries, sitting in a constrained area, lack of use, and heavy physical activity.
Symptoms of knee pain include redness and warmth to the touch, weakness or instability, swelling and stiffness, popping or crunching sounds, and inability to fully straighten the knee. You will want to seek medical attention if you are unable to fully extend or flex your knee, see an obvious deformity in your leg or knee, have severe knee pain that is associated with an injury, or you have a fever, in addition to other symptoms related to knee pain.
Conditions that include knee pain as a symptom:
- Sprained knee
- ACL injury
- Patellofemoral pain syndrome
Dr. Lipp’s proprietary and revolutionary form of care is very efficient and comprehensive. The evaluation will discover the true underlying root cause of your pain which will help us both correct and prevent your pain from returning. The treatment will utilize our huge toolbox of resources to help get our patients functional while reducing pain. This is how we take stress off of the damaged area allowing our patients to be able to heal and provide our patients the fastest possible results.
We use a variety of healthy joint injections for different case presentations, patients, and levels of severity to help expedite the healing process. We offer a 1% lidocaine or marcaine & 99% saline injection for relatively healthy, but inflamed joints. We use Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections for anything that needs a new healing response. We offer human cellular tissue injections for anyone who needs more cushion and lubrication to help damaged joints and soft tissue heal. We will NEVER use a cortisone injection as it promotes cell death and fast tracks you to a surgery!
We use our performance labs to help “kill the pain cycle”. We can get you functioning and out of pain quickly in most cases. But if you go back to doing what you were doing how you were doing it, then the pain will return. Our various labs offer a combination both a video analysis and a function analysis. Some of our labs (Golf, Baseball (Hitting), Run, Athlete, Walk & Balance) offer a performance analysis using sensors to measure efficiency and correct inefficiencies with biofeedback training.
