Sugary Sodas Linked to Arthritis Knee Pain
A new study from the American College of Rheumatology links drinking sugary sodas to osteoarthritis knee pain. Two thousand patients were followed over a 4 year period. Every year a new set of x-rays were taken of the participants knees. What researchers found was that men who drank soda had the worst signs of osteoarthritis or narrowing of the joint space. Researchers also found that those who drank 5 or more sodas a week had double the knee problems. Interestingly, body weight didn’t make a difference.
This study suggests that the components found in sugary sodas-high fructose corn syrup, caffeine, and phosphoric acid- could interfere with the calcium absorption, weakening the bones.
Even though 1 out of 2 people will eventually develop arthritis; drinking sodas might actually accelerate the process.
Dr. Schnee’s take on the issue: If you want to take preventative measures from developing arthritis knee pain then either stop drinking soda completely, or ween yourself off of drinking the empty calories. I realize that there are some highly addictive soft drinks out there ie Dr. Pepper, Mountain Dew. So it may be tough to just stop ‘cold turkey’. Whether you decide to consume soft drinks (OR NOT) is something YOU can control, so do yourself and your knees a favor and consider STOPPING today.

Dallas Knee Doctor Recommends Cold Laser Therapy/ Exercises for Arthritis Knee Pain
It’s true; exercise usually helps relieve arthritis knee pain and stiffness. However, a recent study published in PubMed reveals patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis benefit more from adding cold laser therapy (low level laser therapy) to their exercise program then just from exercise alone. In the study, Brazilian and Norwegian researchers conducted a double-blind placebo controlled study and randomly placed forty patients between the ages of 50-75 years in two groups. One group of patients underwent a treatment regimen of cold laser therapy and exercises while the other group underwent a series of placebo cold laser treatments and exercises.
Researchers concluded that patients who underwent a combination treatment program of cold laser therapy and exercises noticed significant improvements in pain, range of motion, muscular strength, and quality of life while the group who had placebo cold laser therapy treatments showed NO significant improvement in ANY of the components. In other words, patients diagnosed with osteoarthritis knee pain experienced more overall benefits by adding cold laser therapy knee treatments to their exercise program.
Why do cold laser therapy treatments provide more benefits for arthritic knee pain sufferers then exercises alone? Cold laser therapy reinvigorates soft tissues that are damaged and irritated. Cold laser therapy does this by improving the metabolic rate of a cell; therefore, cells heal and repair at a faster rate. Cold laser therapy also improves blood flow and reduces inflammation in and around the knee joint. Incorporating both exercises and cold laser therapy to a patient’s treatment plan will give patients diagnosed with knee arthritis the most overall benefits.
In the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Dr. Alexandra K. Schnee is one of the pioneers in the field of cold laser therapy for the treatment of knee pain, and her program has always incorporated specialized knee exercises as part of a patient’s treatment plan. Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Program™ is a unique, progressive, integrated approach to treating chronic knee conditions.

Dallas, TX- Knee Replacements, Knee Osteoarthritis on the Rise
According to research presented at the American College of Rheumatology’s Annual Scientific Meeting in Chicago, over 6.5 million Americans between the ages of 35 and 84 are expected to be diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis in the next decade. Nearly half of those diagnosed will be individuals between the ages of 45 and 64. This of course will increase the number of total knee replacements and will place an additional burden on our already troubled health care system.
Head author of the study, Dr. Elena Losina, Ph-D and coordinator of the Orthropeadic and Arthritis Center for Outcomes Research at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston explained that the mean age of physician diagnosed knee osteoarthritis fell from 72 in the 1990’s to 56 years of age in 2010. “The large number of newly developed cases of knee osteoarthritis in younger individuals will lead to continued increases in the use of total knee replacements. Furthermore, our findings are consistent with the recently observed tripling of total knee replacements in 45-65 year olds in the United States…”
Dr. Losina and her colleagues believe the increase in the number of knee osteoarthritis in younger people is due to the rise in obesity and the number of knee injuries in the United States.
The National Institutes of Health funded this study.
Dr. Schnee’s Perspective:
The companies that manufacture knee replacement parts are ‘jumping for joy’ after hearing about this news. (Of course they knew it all along. It’s impossible for a country to have an obesity epidemic, and NOT have a rise in knee osteoarthritis and total knee replacements). It’s discouraging that the United States hasn’t lead the way in finding a ‘replacement’ too costly knee joint replacements. It is even more frustrating that Medicare and some other health care companies refuse to pay for effective, less costly ‘alternative’ medications and treatments; but are happy to pay for medications that have been rushed through FDA clearance (and have horrible side-effects), a $60,000 knee replacement, and gel injections- where the results remain inconclusive.
Perhaps we should start following the lead of other countries like Scotland, and Germany who WANT to find alternatives to costly knee replacements, so they’ve been studying adult (not embryonic) stem cells as a way to replace cartilage in the knee joint so that they can reduce the number of total knee joint replacements in the population.
For years the Koreans, Chinese, and the Japanese people have been using acupuncture, supplements, cold laser therapy and other alternative practices to relieve knee pain- in their hospitals! The Norwegian healthcare system, in a study led by Dr. Jan M. Bjordal, M.D., found that cold laser therapy eased osteoarthritis knee pain and was twice as effective as NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), and it saved the system money. So guess what? In Norway, Cold laser therapy earned a top spot as a treatment recommendation for patients suffering from osteoarthritis knee pain.
Our healthcare system has to change: Medicare and some other health insurance companies need to stop being dictated by ‘big pharma’ and start paying for treatments that we know are effective, have the research to back them, and are significantly less costly to our healthcare system. Let’s start with cold laser therapy.

Knee Osteoarthritis Risk Depends on Shape of Knee
Jan Waarsing and her colleagues, researchers from the Netherlands, compared the knee shapes of women diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis (oa) to those without arthritis. There were 606 participants used in the study, and x-rays were used to view the shapes of womens knees.
The researchers found three key differences in the knee shape of women with knee oa versus those without knee osteoarthritis:
- Those with knee arthritis had a wider knee on x-ray (wider femoral and tibial bone).
- They also found that those with arthritic knees had raised lateral tibial plateaus (the outer part of the shin bone was higher).
- Also osteoarthritis knee patients extended their knees more on the x-ray than those without knee oa.
More studies have to be conducted about how knee shape affects knee osteoarthritis, but with these new findings researchers hope that this could help predict knee osteoarthritis in patients and offer early knee treatment and counseling to those with knee osteoarthritis in hopes to manage its progression.
Knee Osteoarthritis Facts:
-The Arthritis Foundation stated that women are at greater risk than men for developing oa. Moreover, a 2010 study found that women were likely to develop arthritic knees after the age of forty.
- The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recently reported that more people limit their activity with a diagnosis of arthritis then those with diabetes, cancer, or heart disease.
-One in three people diagnosed with arthritis in the US have difficulty functioning at work.
-Arthritis Today Magazine reports that exercise eases osteoarthritis knee pain; however, most people discontinue exercising because they confuse muscle pain soreness with knee joint pain.

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 Therapy for Arthritis Knee Pain
Over the years, there have been numerous studies on the effects of cold laser therapy for arthritis knee pain. Recently Dr. Alexandra K. Schnee, D.C. and Dr. Robert Hanson, D.C. published the results of their clinical findings in an abstract that was submitted, peer-reviewed and accepted by the North American Association for Laser Therapy. The abstract entitled Low-Level Laser Therapy And Its Effects On The Quality of Life for Patients Suffering From Osteoarthritis Knee Pain in the Medial Compartment: A Detailed Analysis By Questionnaire will be presented at NAALT’s annual conference in September.
In summary, Dr. Schnee treated 119 knees, representing 86 patients over a period of 10 months. The only patients who participated in this study were those diagnosed with either moderate to severe arthritis on the medial aspect of the knee (inside part-where the knees touch). Patient’s filled out detailed questionnaires on their final treatment and 79.8% of them reported that their knees were moderately to a great deal better. It was concluded that low-level laser therapy or cold laser therapy for arthritis knee pain helps improve the overall quality of life for patients suffering with chronic knee pain. The following is an excerpt from the abstract.
LOW-LEVEL LASER THERAPY AND ITS EFFECTS ON THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR PATIENTS SUFFERING FROM OSTEOARTHRITIS KNEE PAIN IN THE MEDIAL COMPARTMENT: A DETAILED ANALYSIS BY QUESTIONNAIRE
Introduction: The aim of this study was to assess the effects of low-level laser therapy (cold laser therapy) for patients specifically diagnosed with moderate to severe (bone on bone) osteoarthritis knee pain in the medial compartment of the knee by using questionnaires.
Methods: Patients were treated at the DFW Spine & Joint Clinic from June 2010 thru April 2011. There were a total of 119 knees treated representing 86 patients. One hundred nineteen questionnaires were completed and collected after the patients treatment.
Results: There were a total of 86 patients diagnosed and treated for moderate to severe (bone on bone) osteoarthritis in the medial joint compartment with symptoms of knee pain. This diagnosis was a result of either an x-ray or an MRI. Out of those patients 33 had both knees treated and 53 patients had only one knee treated. There were a total of 34 males and a total of 52 females, with a mean age of 66.13 years.
Patients were asked to rate their overall change in activity, limitations, symptoms, emotions, and quality of life after completing 20 treatments using a detailed questionnaire. Patients who had both knees treated were asked to fill out two different questionnaires, one for each knee treated. Overall 79.8% rated the overall improvement of their knee either moderately better to a great deal better. None of the patients rated that the treatments had negative effects on their quality of life or that they experienced more knee pain on the completion of their 20th treatment.
Conclusion: Our results indicate that Low-level laser therapy (or cold laser therapy) significantly improves the overall quality of life and related factors for patients diagnosed with moderate to severe (bone on bone) osteoarthritis knee pain in the medial compartment of the knee making this therapy an ideal treatment for patients with chronic knee pain.

Recently, a patient with osteoarthritis knee pain asked me if Tai Chi, a form of Chinese martial arts, would help reduce their OA symptoms. Absolutely!! The slow rhythmic movements of Tai Chi not only help reduce stiffness and pain in the joint but they also help improve a patient’s mood.
A recent study published online by Arthritis Care and Research, conducted by Tufts University School of Medicine found that Tai Chi, a form of Chinese martial arts, helps seniors improve symptoms of osteoarthritis knee pain.
Researchers from Tufts University School of Medicine divided 40 participants into two groups. Twenty participants attended Tai Chi classes 2X a week for 12 weeks for 60 minutes. The other 20 participants attended a 60 minutes class that covered stretches, diet and nutrition and information about the disease. At the end of the 12 week period the group that practiced Tai Chi noticed a significant decrease in knee pain over the control group. Researchers also noted an increase in strength, range of motion, and improved overall balance with the group that practiced Tai Chi.
After undergoing my Cold Laser Knee Program to help relieve osteoarthritis knee pain I encourage all of my patients to find a fitness facility that offers classes in Tai Chi. If you suffer with osteoarthritis knee pain you should consider doing the same.

Dallas-Fort Worth Cold Laser Therapy Knee Doctor A. Schnee, D.C. Shares Information on Tai Chi and How It can help Ease Osteoarthritis Knee Pain.
Osteoarthritis is a complex disease that takes years to develop and is often described as a ‘wear and tear’ disease most commonly diagnosed in weight bearing joints such as the knee joint. Often times when the disease is in its beginning stages people will complain of morning pain and stiffness and as the disease progresses it often leads to severe pain, disability, and instability of the joint.
How Does Osteoarthritis Affect the Knee Joint?
First, the articular cartilage or protective layer of the joint begins to lose water. Why? Usually cartilage loses water due to age, genetics, weight, and activity level. For example, runners place an excessive amount of stress on their knee joints and eventually they develop osteoarthritis knee pain. The constant pounding on the knees takes a toll on the joints. X-rays taken on long time runners will demonstrate degenerative changes and cartilage loss in the knee joints.
Once the cartilage starts to dry up and lose water content then the cartilage begins to break down and become brittle and fragmented. Imagine a sponge. If a sponge is dry it can crack and be torn very easily. However, if a sponge is full of water, then it’s very difficult to tear. This is the reason why cartilage or meniscus tears are prevalent in people over 50 years of age. The older a person is the less water content is in their cartilage, and the drier and more fragmented it becomes.
Once the cartilage loses its cohesive ability the lining of the joint or the synovium becomes irritated and inflamed, producing its own source of pain and swelling. As a result the inflamed lining or membrane produces more enzymes which further degrade the cartilage and accelerate the arthritic process in the knee joint. The continued fragmentation and breaking down of cartilage eventually exposes the underlying bone.
What is making your knees hurt?
I know it seems hard to believe but the loss of cartilage is NOT the cause of your knee pain. There are NO nerve endings in cartilage therefore knee pain does not come from the lack of cartilage in the knee joint. Instead the pain originates from the synovium which gets irritated and inflamed as a result of the cartilage breaking down. As the cartilage starts to become more fragmented, the underlying bone, which is full of nerve endings, becomes exposed. Only once the nerve endings become irritated will a person experience pain in the bone itself and the actual bone will become tender to the touch.
Steps you can take to get relief from osteoarthritis knee pain:
The good news is that there are steps you can take to help avoid or at least delay knee surgery.
For instance, consider taking a combination of a high quality supplement of glucosamine, MSM, chondroitin to help preserve the cartilage in your knee, and help lubricate the joints. In addition, taking Vitamin D3 helps keep your bones strong, and omega- 3 fish oil acts as an anti-inflammatory which ultimately helps maintain the health of your knee joint. Finally, find a doctor in your area that specializes in treating knee pain using cold laser therapy. Cold laser therapy is used to increase the metabolic rate of the damaged cells in the tissue which in turn initiates certain physiological functions in the cell so that the tissue can heal and repair faster. As a result of this reaction, the swelling, inflammation, and nerve irritation in the knee joint are reduced thereby eliminating pain. In my office in Irving, Texas we combine cold laser therapy, exercises, and various form of physiotherapy into one Cold Laser Knee Program. This is important because not only do I want to help eliminate a person’s knee pain and reduce the inflammation/swelling in the knee, but I also want to strengthen the surrounding muscles of the knee to help take the load off of the joint. In my office it is not uncommon for patients who have been diagnosed with ‘bone on bone’ to complete treatments with the swelling eliminated and their knee pain reduced by 50-90%.

“Dr. Schnee’s Cold Laser Knee Program: Helping People with Knee Pain Avoid Knee Surgery in the Dallas, Fort Worth and surrounding areas since 2001.”
Dallas Cold Laser Doctor Schnee,D.C. shares information on osteoarthritis and the knee joint and how to avoid knee surgery with her knee treatment.
Kinesiology researchers from Iowa State University found that wearing high heels can contribute to joint degeneration and osteoarthritis of the knee. Danielle Barkema a graduate student and Phil Martin a kinesiology professor tested three heel heights on 15 women. They used flat shoes, 2 inch heels and 3.5 inch heels and conducted walking trials with each of the 15 women. They used accelerometers and lab equipment to measure the forces acting on the knee joint when walking in heels. The researchers found that increased heel height resulted in slower speeds and shorter stride lengths when walking. In addition as the heels got higher the more strain was placed on the inner aspect of the joint; which over time could lead to degeneration of the cartilage and osteoarthritis of the knee.
The research suggests that wearing high heels increases the risk for the development of osteoarthritis of the knee.
However, researchers caution that more studies need to be conducted on a larger sample of women to definitively state whether wearing high heels leads to osteoarthritis of the knees.
In my experience, men (wearing cowboy boots) and women who already suffer from osteoarthritis of the knee have difficulty wearing heels because of the stress it places on the inner aspect of the knee joint. In addition, patients with knee pain from meniscus tears will find that high heels exacerbate the pain. Typically, once they complete my Cold Laser Knee Program they are able to wear heels again without experiencing knee pain (even though I never recommend that a patient wears heels).

Nurse with Severe Knee Pain Gets Relief with Dallas Cold Laser Doctor, Alexandra Schnee’s Knee Program
“I suffered with severe knee pain in both knees for years. I was unable to walk for short distances and I was constantly limping. I couldn’t sleep thru the night [because my knee pain was unbearable]. I was diagnosed with ‘bone on bone’, severe arthritis, and a Baker’s Cyst. I took cortisone injections and pain medications but none of those were effective. I was told by the orthopedic surgeon that I needed two knee replacements in the future [which I didn’t want].
Since completing Dr. Alexandra Schnee’s Knee Program I am now able to walk for 1 mile and I am able to stand for 15-20 minutes at a time without experiencing knee pain. I am also able to sleep thru the night without knee pain. I am pleased with my overall experience and results, and my knees are 80% better then when I started with Dr. Schnee.
This patient was able to enjoy her vacation time in Hawaii without having to fear that knee pain would dictate her activities. She’s also able to work at the hospital and take care of her patients without having anxiety about having knee pain.”
