The knee is the largest joint in our body and has to withstand various stresses as we go about our day to day activities. Many of us have experienced a knee problem at some point in our lives, whether from playing sports or working around the house, but sometimes discomfort can develop for no apparent reason at all.
Knee pain can come from inside the joint where important structures such as the meniscus, ACL and PCL are, or from the surrounding muscles, tendons, ligaments or bursa. It may start suddenly from an acute injury (such as falling, twisting the knee, bending the wrong way, or a direct blow while playing sports). Acute injuries can lead to a build up of Internal Scar Tissue which can become more problematic than the original injury itself. Knee pain can also develop over time from overuse or daily wear and tear, often causing symptoms of Osteoarthritis.
- Pain or soreness in or around the knee
- Pain may increase with squatting, twisting, or going up/down stairs
- Swelling and/or bruising
- Limited range of motion
- Stiffness, especially after not moving for a period of time
- Popping or grinding
- Knee may lock, catch or give way
It’s important to know that some people may be more likely to develop knee problems than others. Certain jobs, sports or recreational activities, genetic predisposition and other conditions (like gout, rheumatoid arthritis or osteoporosis) can also contribute to one developing knee issues.
Internal Scar Tissue is a thick, tough, fibrous material that the body creates to quickly repair a damaged tissue such as muscles and tendons. It can build up in any area of the body where there has been internal and/or external damage. Internal Scar tissue is a very common cause of recurring or chronic pain after sport or work injuries, after surgery and it also often intermixes with Osteoarthritis.Visit our Internal Scar Tissue Page to learn more.

In most cases, it heals by itself, but when it persists for weeks, it’s worthwhile treating to avoid further and secondary complications. Read Maxine’s story to find out how Cold Laser Therapy helped her.
Removes Internal Scar Tissue: Inhibits and removes Internal Scar Tissue that naturally forms from injury or repetitive strain, causing discomfort and a delay in healing.
Regenerates Muscle Tissue: Transfers light energy to the affected cells of muscle, regenerating and strengthening damaged muscle tissue to prevent future injury.
Activates Cartilage Production: Promotes the natural cartilage growth process by increasing the production of cellular energy (ATP).
Accelerates Bone Repair: Simulates the bone cells to replicate and produce new healthy bone tissue.
Nerve Regeneration: Helps damaged nerves to recover by growing the neural network and repairing vital insulation around the nerve.
Stimulates Blood Flow: Increases the delivery of oxygen and nutrients required for healing of the affected cells.
