Arthritis Pain Specialists in Orange County


Dr. Cheng,

I'm in Orange County. I used to get knee pain once in a while but now it's almost
everyday. I went to my doctor and he told me it's arthritis pain and there's not much
they can do except surgery. I don't want surgery and I don't want to take any more pain
pills, what can physical therapy do for arthritis and is surgery my only option to treat
arthritis?

Kim,

Pain medications and surgery are not your only options for arthritis pain. Whether it's your
shoulder, knee, hip, or back, arthritis pain can be debilitating no matter where it hits. It
doesn't matter if it's osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or degenerative joint disease, it
has to be controlled. If not, it can change your whole life in as little as a year or two.

Most of my patients who has arthritis pain are getting great results from physical therapy.
Now, I'll be the first to tell you that you cannot reverse the course of arthritis, you can only
control and manage it. Anyone who tells you they can reverse the damage done by arthritis
is really pulling your leg.  But how effective physical therapy can be for arthritis depends
heavily on how and who is doing it.

If your physical therapist is putting you on a hot pack, electrical stimulation, some light
exercises, and an ice pack....it's not going to work. In fact, if that's what you have been
getting in therapy, I strongly suggest you find another therapist. You're wasting time and
money if that's what they're calling physical therapy.  That's the same as calling a hot dog
and a glass of water a gourmet dinner.

Physical therapy has to be much more than that to reduce arthritis pain.

In our clinics in Anaheim and Garden Grove of Orange County, our treatment approach to
arthritis pain is very different and it's the most effective treatment system available in
Orange County.  We use acupressure to release tensed muscles and stiff joints. Next, we
take you through a series of prolonged Yoga stretching to elongate shortened and tight
muscles and tendons. This will help your range of motion and our patients report of
immediate pain relief after the first few sessions. Finally, we give you a few simple
exercises to maintain your new range of motion and strengthen weak muscles.  This
treatment for arthritis is simple but extremely effective.

So if you want to have a pain-free life but do not want surgery or take more pain pills for
your arthritis pain, give us a call. We can significantly reduce your pain and protect that joint
for another 10 or 15 years.
