Dallas Cold Laser | Alternative Knee Treatment Program | Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Therapy
Chronic knee pain sufferers are usually given one of five treatment options when they visit an orthopedic knee surgeon. They are typically prescribed pain medicine, a cortisone injection, or hyaluronic acid injections (Synvisc, Orthovisc, Euflexxa, Hyalgen). When those three options don’t work- then knee surgery is usually recommended. If a patient does not want to undergo knee surgery then the surgeon will usually tell them to call their office whenever they get tired of dealing with the pain. Unfortunately, it is very rare that an orthopedic knee surgeon will recommend alternative knee treatments, such as cold laser therapy. Interestingly, it is not because they don’t ‘believe’ in cold laser therapy treatments. It’s just that cold laser knee therapy is not a treatment they use in THEIR office, so (often their thought process is) what’s the point of taking the chance of losing the patient by refering them to another doctor?
It should be mandatory that Orthopedic surgeons review ALL treatment options with patients. Including, those that don’t benefit them financially). Recommending alternative knee treatments such as cold laser therapy (which has been around for decades and has thousands of studies to prove its effectiveness for treating pain and inflammation) should not be optional. As a doctor it is our obligation to review all treatment options with patients and then let them decide which treatment is best for them.

I had reconstructive knee surgery on my right knee in 1977. In 2010, I had my final series of SYNVISC injections and was told that if the shots didn’t work that I would need a knee replacement next…Since completing Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Treatment Program I am pleased with the reduction in pain… My knee pain is now only a 2-3 out of 10 and the pain is a lot less frequent.

“I Haven’t Used A Cane In Over 5 Days And My Knees Don’t Wake Me Up Anymore”
…I needed to use a cane to walk. I could not stand or walk for any length of time. If I sat for a couple of hours, I would need the cane to stand up. In 2010, I was told that I needed knee replacements in both knees… I am really pleased with my progress since starting with Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Program. The first improvement was that I was able to sleep at night with comfort. Both knees do not keep me awake anymore… I haven’t had to used a cane for over 5 days. I also want to say how professional and pleasant the entire staff has been. Shirley S., Dallas, Texas

Knee Pain in Females Increases with Changes in BMI | Cold Laser Therapy for Knee Pain Dallas-Fort Worth
Knee Pain in Females Increases with Changes in BMI | Cold Laser Therapy for Knee Pain Dallas-Fort Worth
A report published online on July 7th, 2011 in Arthritis Care & Research by researchers at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom found that women who gained weight over a fifteen year period had greater knee pain in both knees. The study followed 594 females body mass index over a period of fifteen years and discovered that an increase in body mass index was associated with greater knee pain in both knees regardless of the severity of osteoarthritis diagnosed on the x-rays.
Basically, this study reported on something women already intuitively know… that is the greater the weight gain the more stress it places on the knees.
Of course, ask any woman, losing weight for many is always easier said than done. If you’ve ever experienced severe knee pain then the last thing you want to do is walk, stand, or even exercise. Most women suffering with severe knee pain would love to be able to be active again but sometimes the pain is so unbearable that this seems impossible.
So if you’re an overweight female and are suffering from knee pain and cannot exercise because the pain is unbearable then you should consider Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Therapy Knee Program.

Too Young for a Knee Replacement? Dallas Fort Worth’s Cold Laser Therapy Doctor Offers Alternative to Knee Replacement Surgery
Typically, if you are younger than 65 years of age and are experiencing knee pain your orthopedic knee surgeon would rather have you put off knee surgery until you’re older. The reason for this is that most prosthetics used to replace the knee only have a shelf life of 10 to15 years. And I don’t know of one individual who would volunteer to have a knee replacement redone for a second time. This is why it is vital to wait as long as you can- but until you can have the surgery you shouldn’t have to suffer and have it destroy the quality of your life.
Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Program offers individuals with knee pain, who live in the Dallas, Fort Worth and surrounding areas an alternative to knee replacement surgery and an opportunity to experience knee pain relief.
Mrs. N, traveled from Johnson City, Texas and stayed with friends and family while she had underwent Dr. Schnee’s cold laser treatment knee program. Until she found Dr. Schnee, Mrs. N thought she would just have to tolerate the pain in her knee and wait until she was in her late sixties before her doctor would do a knee replacement. This is her story:
“My knee pain was unbearable when I started care with Dr. Schnee. I could not walk, sit, stand, run, climb stairs or [even] relax my legs. I had arthroscopic knee surgery in 2008, and my doctor told me that I needed a total knee replacement but he thought I was too young for one. Since completing care with Dr. Schnee my total overall improvement has been about 75% in reduction of knee pain and improved mobility, strength and range of motion. My knees are so much better!”
Mrs. T, is another example of an individual with ‘bone on bone’ knee pain, but is considered too young to undergo a total knee replacement. This is her story:
“My knee pain [before starting Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Program] was not severe; but it was limiting my activities and waking me up during the night. I had difficulty going up and down stairs, getting in and out of the car and bending my knee [was a problem]. I had arthroscopic knee surgery and the surgeon told me that I needed a total knee replacement [but I was too young]. I am very pleased with the outcome of my knee treatments with Dr. Schnee. My improvement has been about 95-99%.” Dallas, Texas
These cases are not uncommon in our office. Since 2001, Dr. Schnee has had the opportunity to help knee pain sufferers experience knee pain relief, and improve their overall function with her Cold Laser Therapy Knee Program.
