Dallas Cold Laser Expert Combines Cold Laser Therapy and Physical Medicine to Painlessly Eliminate Chronic Knee Pain
Dr. Alexandra Schnee, Has Created A Cold Laser Knee Program To Help Dallas Chronic Knee Pain Sufferers By Combining Non-Invasive, Painless Cold Laser Technology With Other Specific Modalities.
Dr. Schnee at Work
Irving, Texas-Over 4.1 million people seek medical care for knee problems and more than 450,000 knee and hip replacements are performed every year. Dr. Alexandra Schnee, an Irving Chiropractor, is offering patients suffering with knee pain an alternative to surgery, shots and pain medication. With cold laser therapy and treatment protocols developed by Dr. Schnee patients are able to maintain an active, and pain-free lifestyle without the harmful side-effects often caused from conventional treatments. Dr. Schnee’s expertise and unique treatment protocols, (she uses various world renowned IIIB cold lasers and combines them with non-weight bearing exercises, and other recognized modalities to help heal, repair, and strengthen the knee) is the reason she is one of the most sought after cold laser doctors for the treatment of knee pain.
“Many patients that come to our office for treatments suffer from knee pain due to osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bone on bone, meniscus tears, tendonitis, bursitis, Baker’s Cyst’s, post surgical knee pain, sprains/strains or a combination of those conditions. Most patients have tried arthroscopic knee surgery, injections, and medications prior to coming in to see me and have had unsuccessful results. Unfortunately, ‘conventional medicine’ didn’t help them, and they are faced with the possibility of having to undergo a total knee replacement. Some of these patients are too young, have other health problems, or simply do not want invasive knee surgery. My program is a safe, effective option for those looking for alternatives to knee surgery. We now know that cold laser treatments alone will not produce the best clinical outcomes, and that a combination of cold laser therapy and physiotherapy is necessary to help knee pain sufferers become pain-free and get their quality of life back. In my practice, most patients who complete treatments report a 50-100% improvement and are able to avoid knee surgery. For instance, it is NOT unusual for patients to report that they can sleep thru the night without knee pain, walk longer without knee pain, stand longer, have less stiffness in their knees, notice greater knee mobility, more knee strength, are able to get up from a chair easier and have less inflammation in their knees. I have been using cold lasers for years, and I am excited to help patients suffering from knee pain become virtually pain-free without the need for knee surgery, injections or medications.”
Dr. Alexandra Schnee is practical and understands that her program is NOT for every knee pain sufferer. She also understands that there is no such thing as a ‘cure’ for certain conditions of the knee. This is the reason Dr. Schnee DOES NOT ALLOW every patient to undergo her program and they MUST be a candidate for care. For example, when you call the DFW Spine & Joint Center don’t expect to be able to make an appointment to see Dr. Schnee. Instead her staff is directed to get the name and number of any potential patient so Dr. Schnee can personally call them. According to Dr. Schnee, this initial phone call allows her to find out from the patient if there is a problem or condition she cannot treat so she doesn’t waste their time. It also gives the individual the opportunity to have their questions answered. Once this screening process takes place then a 45 minute appointment for a consultation and examination is booked with Dr. Schnee. Even after Dr.Schnee examines and consults with a patient it still doesn’t guarantee that she will accept their case. “If after examining a patient and taking x-rays a patient doesn’t have a condition that we can help treat or a patient doesn’t have realistic expectations about the treatment, then we won’t go any further and we will refer them to the appropriate doctor.”
Cold Lasers work by stimulating injured tissue on a cellular level this in turn creates a series of chemical reactions accelerating the body’s natural healing mechanisms. The cold lasers Dr. Schnee uses are all FDA Cleared. They are used to decrease pain and inflammation, help generate new and healthy cells, improve nerve function, increase the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair, and improve blood circulation to the tissues. IIIB Cold Lasers produce no heat, and do not cut coagulate or vaporize, any tissue. Research indicates that cold laser therapy helps relieve arthritis knee pain and improves quality of life in 70% of patients who undergo treatments1, and that 82% of patients with arthritis knee pain reported significant knee pain relief and recovery of knee joint mobility
after completing cold laser treatments2.
“This knee treatment requires no hospitalization, it’s painless and there are no side-effects. In my opinion, knee surgery should only be an option once all non-invasive, treatments have been exhausted or if it’s a medical emergency, ”states Dr.Schnee.
