Chronic Knee Pain APRC

What is chronic knee pain?


Chronic knee pain is regular, long-term pain, sensitivity, and/or swelling in the knees. A variety of conditions may contribute to chronic knee pain, and a multitude of treatments exist to address this pain. Knee pain can be a unique problem and must be addressed thoughtfully.

Why do I have knee pain?

While temporary knee pain may be the result of an accident or injury, chronic knee pain remains unless treated, and may be the result of compounded problems.


Diseases or physical problems may be the origin of your knee pain. These include (but are not limited to):


• Tendinitis

• Osteoarthritis

• Rheumatoid arthritis

• Dislocation

• Torn ligament

• Meniscus tear

• Bursitis

• Gout

• Baker’s cyst

• Chondromalacia patella

• Bone tumors


If you are obese or overweight, your knees are more likely to be strained. When you engage in a physical activity, for each pound you are overweight, your knee must absorb an additional four pounds of pressure.

Attributes which may worsen chronic knee pain:

• Knee structural injuries, which can cause swelling or bleeding, creating an additional chronic problem if not treated correctly
• Strains
• Sprains
• Overuse
• Bad posture when engaged in a physical activity
• Not warming up or improperly stretching
• Infection
• Previous injuries
• Athletic activity
• Age

How ReliefCare is Used for Knee Pain

ReliefCare is a non-surgical, drug-free, fast-acting protocol that has been developed and mastered for over 30 years by Dr. Christopher Cordima. ReliefCare is a scientific approach that combines FDA cleared technologies and state-of-the-art therapies which together provides a cumulative effect that increases the healing mechanism within the body.


ReliefCare uses innovative FDA approved technologies that addresses three key areas to help achieve long-lasting pain relief:

ReliefCare treats the source of the knee pain to achieve relief as fast as possible.
ReliefCare helps to reduce chronic inflammation which in turn improves the immune system and enhances the mitochondrial energy which our cells need to fight off the risk of disease.
ReliefCare restores function so the body can heal properly and fight against disease-related conditions that cause knee pain.

What Types of Therapies are Used in ReliefCare?

It’s extremely difficult to explain medical therapies and services via the internet or over the phone versus in-person. As always, we would like you to call (617) 629-2600 and make an appointment for your first consultation. From there, we can meet, explain and show you the different ReliefCare therapies being used by our patients today.
