- An ice pack should be used with acute knee pain (a new knee injury), and a heating pad should be used with chronic knee problems (knee pain that has lasted for several months). If in doubt- use an ice pack.
- Since cold/ice compresses reduce swelling and inflammation use an ice pack for 20 minutes every two hours if your knee is swollen. If you use a heating pad and you have swelling in your knee it will make it worse.
- A heating pad should be used if you experience stiffness or range of motion problems. Ten minutes of heat every two hours will help to relax the muscles attached to your knee and increase the blood circulation, which naturally helps heal muscles and tissues by providing nutrients to these body parts.
Knee Doctor in Dallas Sheds Light on Cold Laser Therapy for Knee Pain
Cold laser therapy for knee pain relief has been an effective non-surgical treatment option for individuals in the Dallas Fort Worth area since 2001. Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Program™ is a program that integrates both physical medicine along with cold laser therapy; so that individuals complaining of knee pain can receive relief and avoid having unnecessary knee surgery.
There are three major outcomes when receiving Cold Laser Therapy for knee pain:
1) Healing- Cold laser therapy accelerates the healing process by stimulating ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) or energy production in the cell thereby allowing tissues to heal and repair faster.
2) Knee Pain Relief: Normalizes the sodium potassium gradient in the nerve cell thereby eliminating or relieving knee pain.
3) Reduction/Elimination of Swelling/Inflammation in the Knees: Allows the cells to get rid of excess fluid thereby allowing the pressure around the knee joint to be relieved.
Overview of Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Program™:
Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Program™ is unique in that it combines specialized cold laser knee protocols, multiple lasers, and other physiotherapy treatments to relieve pain, inflammation, and strengthen the muscles around the knee joint. Each treatment program is customized for the individual.
Moreover, Dr. Schnee utilizes multiple lasers in her treatment programs since an individuals’ knee may be diagnosed with several different conditions that need to be addressed simultaneously.
How Many Treatments Are Necessary?
The total number of treatments varies depending on the knee condition being treated. It may take 10-30 treatments to receive optimal results. However, most individuals may notice improvements around the 6-12 treatment.
How Long Does A Treatment Take?
Each treatment takes 20 minutes to an hour depending on the condition being treated.
Is the Treatment Uncomfortable or Painful?
Cold laser treatments are painless, and there are no documented side-effects associated with the therapy. (It’s rare, but you may be sore after the first treatment, but that sensation goes away after the first day or two.)
What Might I Expect After Completing Treatments?
Over the past 35 years, there have been thousands of papers written and hundreds of double blind placebo controlled studies that have been performed that have proven the effectiveness of cold laser therapy.
In 2011, Dr. Schnee and her colleague Dr. Robert Hanson, D.C. presented their clinical findings in the form of an abstract at the annual North American Association for Laser Therapy conference in Milwaukee. They found that 79.8% of individuals diagnosed with moderate to severe osteoarthritis in the knee stated that their knee felt ‘moderately better to a great deal better’ after completing cold laser therapy treatments at the DFW Spine & Joint Center in Irving, Texas.
The following individuals have actually completed Dr. Schnee’s cold laser therapy for knee pain program with Dr. Alexandra Schnee, D.C. at the DFW Spine & Joint Center in Irving, Texas. The stories you are about to read either came from individuals who did not want to undergo knee replacement surgery, or were not candidates for knee surgery (due to other health problems). Prior to starting Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Program™ they all complained of knee pain when walking, standing, or sleeping.
Here are their stories:
“If Someone Had Not Referred Me To Dr. Schnee I Would Have Scheduled Surgery Replacement For My Knees…”
My knee pain was unbearable at times. I could not do much of anything like clean the house, stand, or walk. I used to get steroid shots every 4-6 weeks (which would only last 4-5 days) I had to take pain medication every day just so I could tolerate the pain in my knee. The pain medication was non-narcotic so I could function during the day. I also tried the SYNVISC injections every 6 months (they did not help at all). I was told to get both knees replaced.
I am so grateful to Dr. Schnee. If someone had not referred me to her I would have scheduled surgery for replacement for my knees. I now have the quality of life I have not had in years. I get up with a smile on my face each dayJ. I can sleep at night pain free! I can walk, clean house, and stand more than I ever could! I can even vacuum the carpet! `My knees have improved 90% from the day I walked into the DFW Spine & Joint Center. The staff is wonderful! They make each patient feel special. I will miss seeing them and talking to them.–Babette M., Irving, Texas
Cold Laser Therapy for Knee Pain Got Me Walking Again- With Very Little Pain…
I am very pleased with my results. My knee feels about 80% better than it did prior to my treatment. I am amazed with my results. I tried everything before trying Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Program. I tried acupuncture, shots, and various other things that didn’t work. Before I started treatments I could barely walk- I could not go up and down the stairs. It was very painful to ride long distances in a car and I had a lot of trouble getting out of a chair. I felt that a knee replacement was the next step. I had a knee replacement already on my other knee so I wanted to try cold laser therapy first (knee replacement surgery was my last resort). Now I can stand, walk and go up and down stairs with very little pain in my knee. — Garland S., Granbury, Texas
I Did Not Want to Endure Another Knee Replacement Surgery…
I had my right knee replaced in December of 2009, and I was hoping to get some pain relief before my other knee got that painful. Before I started Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Program I had pain sleeping at night, and I had to put a pillow under my knees. I tossed and turned at night just trying to get comfortable. I could not straighten my knee without discomfort. Going up and down stairs- a grinding sound occurred and it hurt around the knee cap area. It hurt more going down stairs than going up stairs.
From the second session with Dr. Schnee I have been able to sleep all night very comfortably. I have no pain in the back of my knee when I try to straighten it out. I haven’t had the shooting pain in my knee when walking or climbing stairs. I am able to walk longer distances at a time without the severe pain in my knees.
Every person that I have come into contact at this establishment has been so friendly, helpful, courteous, knowledgeable yet very professional. Coming here has been a pleasure.–Nancy H., Garland, Texas
Knee Injections Weren’t Working So The Surgeon Recommended Total Knee Replacements…
When my problem was at its worst I couldn’t stand up and walk. I couldn’t sleep very well because I couldn’t turn over on the right side. Before the cold laser therapy program with Dr. Schnee, I was going to a pain clinic every four weeks to get shots in my knee. Now after completing Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Program, I am very pleased with my overall experience and I feel that my overall percentage of improvement has been around 80%.–Harry H., Frisco, Texas
Dr. Schnee Helped Me After I Was Told That I Couldn’t Have A Knee Replacement…
Before Dr. Schnee’s Cold laser therapy treatments my knees were extremely painful and swollen (due to bone on bone and baker’s cysts). I had difficulty walking, sleeping, and getting up and down from a chair. I tried arthritis medication and cortisone injections which did not help. I am very pleased and I would say I am experiencing maybe 50% less pain in my knees which is wonderful-Thanks!–
Pat R., Carthage, Texas
Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Therapy for Knee Pain Program Got Me Sleeping through the Night Again…
My doctor told me that I would need both knees replaced. I was up all parts of the night. I just couldn’t sleep because of the cramps in my legs. I had a hard time getting up out of a chair and I could not get up off the floor. I am very pleased with the results with Dr. Schnee’s Cold laser therapy program. I am walking better and I don’t have the pain in my knees like I had before.

Cold Laser Therapy Eliminates Pain for Utah Jazz Basketball Player
Utah Jazz’s Earl Watson sought treatments to relieve pain and swelling from a sprained ankle after he had to sit out a game against the Clippers on February 2nd. Since the Utah Jazz’s team doctors’ don’t utilize cold laser therapy; Watson had to take a detour to visit his long time doctor in Los Angeles who performed the treatment on his ankle. After four cold laser therapy treatments the swelling and the pain in his ankle drastically reduced and he was able to play against the Lakers on Saturday.
The results? Watson scored eight points, and eleven assists. The Utah Jazz won 96-87 over the Lakers.
Jazz coach, Tyrone Corbin was asked about the treatment and he stated, “It looked like [cold laser therapy treatments] worked. His swelling is very down from what it was. He’s back on the floor. So that’s what I’m excited for.”
Watson stated, “I love to compete. So I’m not one to ever linger around any injury and sit out long times.”
He now insists that after cold laser therapy treatments he no longer has any ankle pain.
Dr. Schnee’s Opinion:
This article in the Deseret News shocked me because I couldn’t believe that the team doctors for the Utah Jazz weren’t using cold laser therapy to help their athletes. That just seemed so antiquated to me. Especially, since other professional sports teams have been using this type of treatment to help their athletes recover faster, with great success, for many years.
In my opinion, there is no valid reason why cold laser therapy shouldn’t be incorporated in EVERY sports team’s injury recovery regime.
The bottom line is…it appears as though the doctors’ working for the Utah Jazz need to start reading more research studies about new and effective treatments available to help their athletes. Of course the first order of business is to learn about cold laser therapy.
That is, if they want their players healthy enough to actually win games.

Scientists Think Protein in Knee Joint May Ease Arthritis Knee Pain
In healthy knees, synovial fluid is the lubricant that allows the joint to glide. In an unhealthy arthritic knee there are decreased amounts of synovial fluid. In the past few years pharmaceutical companies have come out with rooster comb injections (aka gel injections, hyalgan injections, hyaluronic acid injections) to try and replicate the effects of synovial fluid. However, research indicates that the active protein or molecule in those injections only lasts for a few days in the knee joint before it is absorbed into the bloodstream.
That is why Saleem Abubacker, a 23 year old PHD student at the University of Calgary in Canada and his colleagues have been researching a different molecule then the one found in current knee injections. Abubacker and his team are studying the effects of lubricin, a protein found in synovial fluid and on the surface of the knee joint. They are injecting lubricin in unused cow joints from butcher shops and putting them in a machine that pushes them and twists them like human knee joints. Preliminary studies suggest that lubricin lasts for longer periods of time in the knee joint (28 days) compared to the current molecule used for injections on the market, and it has shown to slow down the breakdown of cartilage. They are also finding that the molecule forms building blocks, so as it grows it makes a difference in lubricating the knee. Abubacker thinks that some patients with arthritis knee pain may have more of the single molecule then the long chain and that by restoring that balance of lubricin they may have less arthritis knee pain.
Obviously, more advanced studies need to be completed with lubricin, especially on human knee joints, but who knows this may be the next type of knee injection in the future.

Knee Treatment Helps Patient With Knee Pain | Dallas-Fort Worth
Dr. Schnee’s cold laser knee treatment program helps patients from the Dallas-Fort Worth and surrounding areas get knee pain relief so that they can avoid taking pain pills, painful knee injections, and knee surgery.
Here is a recent review of Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Treatment Program from a patient who started experiencing knee pain several years after having knee surgery. She did not want knee surgery again so she started Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Program™.
“I had arthroscopic knee surgery in 2007 for a torn meniscus and I did good until June 2011 but I wanted to seek alternative methods. My knee pain was intense when I walked,and especially at night. It was burning pain that kept me awake at night. I couldn’t garden, bird watch, or stand for more than 30 minutes without my knee being painful.
Since completing Dr. Schnee’s knee treatments I sleep so much better now, I’m walking more and building strength each day with exercises. I feel I’m 75% better and will continue to improve. I only wish I had this knee treatment instead of the surgery in 2007 I would recommmend this to anyone who wants to avoid knee surgery.
The staff at the DFW Spine & Joint Center are exceptional. They got me in and out in promptly, no long time waiting for my appointment. Dr. Schnee was very thorough and honest in her plan. She didn’t promise what she couldn’t deliver.
You have nothing to lose by trying Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Therapy (except knee pain)!”

A review from a patient about Dr. Schnee’s knee treatment program for knee pain relief in Dallas-Fort Worth Texas.
Knee Pain At Night? Cold Laser Dallas Knee Pain Treatment Offers Relief
Is knee pain keeping you awake at night? Are you unable to sleep at night because your knees ache?
The most common knee condition that causes knee pain at night and disrupts sleep is a meniscus tear in the knee.
A Meniscus Tear…
The meniscus is the rubbery cartilage like material that sits between the shin bone and the thigh bone. There are two menisci one on the inner part of the knee (medial meniscus) and the other is on the outer part of the knee (or the lateral meniscus). The medial meniscus tears more commonly then the lateral meniscus. A meniscus tear can be caused from an injury or arthritis in the knee. Unfortunately, most individuals in the acute stage of a meniscus tear will experience knee pain at night.
Prior to undergoing (Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Dallas Knee Pain Treatment Program), Mary L. was diagnosed with a meniscus tear and experienced constant knee pain day and night. This is her story:
“I had constant knee pain day and night that required pain killers every day. I couldn’t kneel at church, sleep at night or go shopping or clean house. I had arthroscopic knee surgery but it didn’t help me so the surgeon recommended a total knee replacement. Since completing knee pain treatments with Dr. Schnee, I can sleep with hardly any pain, and kneel at church. I am very pleased with my overall percentage of improvement- which is 80%.”
Arthritis and ‘Bone on Bone’ Knee Pain
The other knee condition that can prevent you from getting a restful night’s sleep is severe arthritis knee pain or ‘bone on bone knee pain.’
Knee pain from severe arthritis knee pain or ‘bone on bone knee pain’ is a direct result of the lining of the bone or synovium becoming irritated. The synovium has trillions of sensitive nerve endings when it gets inflamed or irritated an individual will experience knee pain- especially at night.
Paul B. had a similar story to Mary’s but instead of a meniscus tear he was diagnosed with ‘bone on bone knee pain’. This is his story:
“The pain in my left knee would wake me up at night. I had pain in my left knee when walking or climbing stairs. I tried physical therapy and over the counter medications. I had one cortisone shot and it lasted about one month. Since completing Dr. Schnee’s knee pain treatment program I can stand longer without experiencing knee pain and I can walk better. I can sleep at night without knee pain waking me up. I can go up and down stairs better. I am very pleased with my overall experience and results. I wish that I had known about Dr. Schnee’s cold laser therapy program before my knees got so bad. I would say my overall improvement is 60-70% in my left knee and 70-80% in my right knee.”
Meniscus tears and bone on bone knee pain are the two most common conditions that can cause knee pain at night; however, there are other knee conditions that can disrupt your sleep (they’re just not as common).

Cold Laser Dallas Doctor is Helping Knee Pain Sufferers Walk ‘Normal’ Again
Obviously, if you’ve been limping over a prolonged period of time due to knee pain, it will cause havoc on the other joints in your body. Not only will limping force the opposite knee to wear down faster, but it will also wear down the opposite hip. This is the reason that it’s vital to fix the knee that is hurting you. After all, the last thing any knee pain sufferer wants is to cause damage to the opposite knee or hip that wasn’t causing problems to begin with.
Prior to receiving cold laser knee treatments and physiotherapy from Cold laser Dallas Doctor, Dr. Alexandra Schnee D.C., Tom G., a ground support mechanic for the airlines, experienced severe pain in his left knee that kept him from standing up straight and walking ‘normally’. “Since completing treatments there is a 80-90% improvement [in my knee] and there is no tenderness in the knee at all.” He also states, “I can now walk normally without a limp, and I can walk up stairs [without any problems]. Before starting treatments with Dr. Schnee I couldn’t walk, or sleep comfortably. I had cortisone injections from my family doctor and pain pills but nothing worked. I am very pleased with Dr. Schnee’s knee pain treatments.”
If your knee pain is keeping you from walking ‘normally’ it’s time to do something about it; otherwise, you may risk damaging the opposite knee and hip in the process.

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.

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.

Dallas Cold Laser Therapy knee pain treatment Doctor in Irving, TX shares study about how knee pain worsens with increased body mass index. Dallas-Fort Worth.
The biggest misconception amongst patients who are obese is thinking that the arthritis in their knee will go away after bariatric weight loss surgery. Even though the surgery will help improve their overall health and reduce knee pain it will not improve the arthritis in the knee joint. This is according to researchers and a new study presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
The study followed 10 patients that lost an average of 51 pounds after weight loss surgery.
All of them reported a reduction of knee pain and increased function a year after the surgery. Moreover, all of them had irreversible damage to the knee joint which didn’t disappear with weight loss.
If you lost weight with bariatric surgery, and are feeling better but your knees are still a problem then consider treatments such as cold laser therapy along with other physiotherapy modalities. These treatments are perfect supplements to helping arthritis knee pain sufferers get the most improvement without undergoing further surgery.
