Thigh & Knee Pain Treatment

S.T.A.R. Therapy stops knee pain because it corrects the reason for the knee pain, plain and simple. S.T.A.R. Therapy targets the damaged soft tissue structures that are causing the underlying knee instability which, in turn, causes destructive joint motions that erode the cartilage. By stabilizing knee joint motion, S.T.A.R. Therapy can stop the accelerated degenerative cascade, and even allow the regeneration of cartilage as can be seen on x-ray.

The treatment induces a localized, temporary inflammatory response, stimulating your body’s natural healing cascade. Remember, no tissue in the body repairs without the use of inflammation—it is how all of our tissues repair! The local inflammation induced by S.T.A.R. Therapy is far different than chronic, systemic inflammatory conditions. The use of S.T.A.R. Therapy is also the complete opposite of pain “management” treatments like cortisone injections and NSAIDs. Corticosteroids and NSAIDs (such as ibuprofen) are used to turn off the pain signal, but also turn off the body’s healing (inflammatory) cascade, a crippling long-term side effect that does not allow for normal knee repair and sets a patient up for eventual knee replacement surgery. As opposed to knee surgery, a major advantage of a S.T.A.R. Therapy treatment course is that patients remain active while the tissue repairs.
