Stop knee pain fast without surgery.
We treat a variety of knee conditions with our minimally-invasive procedure.
Cut out the pain
not the knee joint.
Get back to pain-free motion without surgery!
We offer a real alternative to major knee replacement surgery! We treat your problem, knee joint pain, AROmotion stops the pain, helps heal damaged joint cartilage, and allows fast effective reconditioning of the muscles and ligaments.
Remember, total knee replacement surgery, is a big operation that carries the inherent risk of anesthesia, surgery, and hospital-based infections. Once they surgically cut out your natural knee joint and place an implant, there is no going back. AROmotion is needle-based, so there is no big incision, no scarring, or surgical recovery period.
Saving your knee through AROmotion is a faster and safer way of treating your problem…arthritic knee joint pain.
Total knee replacement surgery
is an invasive procedure with risks.
AROmotion offers a real, non-surgical alternative to knee replacement surgery so you can avoid risks such as undergoing anesthesia, complications from surgical implants, scarring, and post-operative chronic pain.
Knees are hinge joints. As the joints move back and forth, over time, the hyaline cartilage (a hard, slick coating that protects the bones) begins to wear thin. “Potholes” are formed. The cartilage is no longer acting as a barrier between the bones in those spaces where the bone is exposed; the bone is rubbing against bone. Pressure from movement can then cause intense pain. AROmotion stimulates the cartilage, filling the empty space that is the true source of your pain.
Bone spurs in knee
Over time, the hyaline cartilage in your knee joint (the hard, slick coating that prevents the bones from grinding against each other) begins to wear thin. Bone spurs occur over years to actually help protect and stabilize the sides of the joint. They typically do not affect the motion of the hinged knee joint unless the joint is so degenerated that it is mechanically not functioning and people typically need a walker or wheelchair to get around.
Knees are hinged joints. Knee osteoarthritis is a general term for the disease that causes the wearing down of hyaline cartilage (the hard, slick coating that prevents the bones from grinding against each other). This is the same cartilage you will find at the end of a chicken bone. When this cartilage thins or wears down it is typically in spots, like “tiny potholes in your chicken bone cartilage”. The medical term for this is Chondromalacia. Any pressure from movement will then cause serious pain, because the nerve endings underneath are not protected. Symptoms of knee osteoarthritis are non-mechanical such as pain, stiffness, weakness, swelling, decreased range of motion.
Your ACL, or anterior cruciate ligament, provides stability to your knee joint. ACL tears are one of the most common and most painful knee injuries. Because they contribute significantly to stability, if you tear your ACL you may not be able to walk or put weight on your knee at all, and may also experience a popping sensation, swelling, an inability to move your knee, and crippling pain. Treatment is with arthroscopy, which uses one or two dime-sized incisions and a thin instrument with a camera to diagnose and repair the tear.
Most of us over the age of 60 have some degree of meniscus tearing, fraying or degenerative thinning. What’s interesting is that the “space” we see between the bones on a simple knee X-Ray is made up of the fibrous meniscus as it is less dense than bone or hyaline cartilage. So when you are told that you are “bone on bone” and have to have a knee replacement. What the surgeon is really saying is that since there is no space, you have no meniscus so the meniscus cannot be the cause of your pain. The ONLY other cause of knee pain MUST be due to Chondromalacia aka “potholes in your chicken bone cartilage” pressing on the unprotected nerve endings. So you have to have a knee replacement…if you want the surgeon to treat you.
Patient Success Story
“Over three years ago I was told I had to have total knee replacement, so I allowed that. Worst mistake of my life. So, when my right leg started hurting real bad and going out from under me, I was told the same thing from another doctor. I thought I’d never be free of pain or be able to have a normal life. Luckily, I saw an ad on Facebook about ARO. I had nothing to lose at that point, so I went. From the moment I walked in, I was very impressed. The staff is not only professional, they are very caring. Anyway, after speaking to the doctors, I had the procedure. I’m so glad I did. I could even dance a little again! They were there for me every step of the way, and still are. It’s embarrassing to say this, but I love these doctors!”
