Knee Pain Q & A

What is knee pain?

Your knee is a complex joint made up of many components that help you walk, run, kneel, squat, and jump. Knee pain refers to any discomfort you experience in and around your knee, ranging from a dull ache to sharp pain.

No matter the cause, knee pain can have a significant effect on your daily activities. The team at JNT Natural Medicine takes a holistic approach to care, and they develop treatment plans that take your overall health into consideration, not just your symptoms. 

What causes knee pain?

Knee pain can develop due to an injury or disease that’s affecting the components that make up your knee. Your knee pain may be due to:

  • Arthritis
  • Ligament tear
  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Torn meniscus
  • Patellofemoral pain syndrome 
  • Muscle injury

You may also experience knee pain if you’re overweight or obese, or if you have a job that requires heavy lifting or squatting throughout the course of the day. 

What are the treatments for knee pain?

The team at JNT Natural Medicine develops individualized treatment plans for the management of your knee pain based on the underlying cause, your overall health, and the severity of your symptoms. Some of the innovative treatments include:

Back on Trac™

Back on Trac is a noninvasive treatment for knee decompression. During therapy, the treatment tool gently stretches the muscles and joints in your back, knees, and hips. Back on Trac features five protocols specific to the knee to improve health and function and relieve your pain. 


Trigenics is an advanced system that instantly reprograms the way your brain communicates with your muscles to provide immediate pain relief and improve strength and movement. You may benefit from Trigenics to treat arthritis, bursitis, or patellofemoral pain syndrome.

Regenerative medicine 

Regenerative medicine is a new area of care that focuses on supporting your body’s own ability to heal diseased or damaged tissue. The team at JNT Natural Medicine uses stem cell therapy that’s injected  into your body to support the regeneration of healthy tissue to replace the diseased or damaged tissue.

Depending on the cause of your knee pain, the team may also incorporate chiropractic care, cold laser therapy, or pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy into your treatment plan.
