Why Some Knee Problems Persist After Full or Partial Replacement

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Jul 25, 2017


I am often asked if anything can be done for knee problems that persist after a full or partial knee replacement.

Unfortunately, its fairly common to continue having some knee issues after knee replacment (knee arthroplasty). Some of the reported knee challenges include pain, lack of stability or the feeling your knee can't be trusted. If you search using Google with this search string "knee pain after knee replacement pubmed", you will find several research papers discussing the topic.
 
Recent Study Shows High Incidence of Chronic Knee Replacement Pain

A recent study looked at the percentage of patients with chronic knee pain after knee replacement at a minimum of one year following surgery in 272 patients. A questionnaire was sent to them at between 12 and 16 months following their surgery. Of the 272 patients who responded, 107 patients (nearly 40%) reported that they still had persistent pain at one-plus year following surgery. The median average pain rating (using the 0-10 numeric pain scale) was 3 out of 10, with pain reported as high as 5 out of 10. While you might think 5 out of 10, which is moderate pain, would be an improvement in knee pain after knee replacement, it isn’t that much different from the pain level most patients would describe prior to undergoing the knee replacement.  This amount of pain can keep you from being able to do certain things like roller skate with the kids, or going on trips that require a lot of walking or climbing stairs, for example. Persistent pain is also commonly described as aching, tender, and tiring, which certainly would give someone pause when considering to participate is a variety of activies.

7 Keys for Successful Natural Treatment for Chronic Tendonitis

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Thu, Mar 10, 2016


Tendonitis in any area of the body can be quite painful and debilitating, often interfering with your daily lifestyle.

I often see patients who have tendonitis and the challenge is to help the patient understand the various steps and procedures that need to be undertaken in the healing of this type of injury. Of course there are many different places in the body a tendon can be injured but the wrist, knee, and achilles tendons are the most common ones I have seen. In this blog post I outline a few aspects about tendon construction, tendon healing, and natural methods (drug-free, surgery-free) that I and others have found to be helpful and effective to enable patients to get back to their normal lifestyle.  

Tendonitis refers to inflammation of a tendon, which is the tough rope-like tissue that attaches muscles to bones. Tendons vary in form, and can be rounded cords, strap- like bands or flattened ribbons. [1]

Overuse, injury, and various systemic inflammatory conditions of the body can cause tendonitis. Some medical researchers state that the term tendonitis should be reserved for use only after performing a biopsy and then examining the tissue under a microscope and instead, the term tendonopathy should be used until a biopsy is performed. Regardless of the term used, a good understanding of how to best approach a tendon injury is important.

Foot Pain and Plantar Fasciitis Can be Solved Without Surgery

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Wed, Nov 18, 2015

If you currently have foot pain or plantar fasciitis, or if you have had it in the past - you know how it can totally interfere with your life.

I personally have had pain so bad that I literally could not sleep. Just the pressure of my foot weight resting in an elevated position on a pillow was excruiating. I would not wish foot pain on anyone.

Due to my own issues with severe periodic foot pain, I was compelled to search for solutions that were effective and expedient. My professional work involves standing on my feet most of the day along with walking. I also prefer an active life outside of my office and having foot pain was not something I wanted to try to have with me the rest of my life. 

My search led me to some surprising solutions that totally eliminated my pain and I would like to share them with you.

Brain-Body Miscommunication and The Frozen Shoulder Connection

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Wed, Dec 10, 2014


Chronic Shoulder Pain and "Frozen Shoulder" Are Common Health Problems...and Typical Treatments Are Not Very Effective

"Chronic shoulder pain has large health care costs and a major impact on the health of affected individuals, including absence from work and disability. Shoulder complaints may have anunfavourable outcome, with only about 50% of all new episodes of shoulder complaints presenting in medical practice showing a complete recovery within 6 months. After 1 year this proportion increases to 60%.  Most of the shoulder pain prevalence data is derived from population-based research." [1]

Despite the relatively poor outcome of traditional medical procedures for frozen shoulder (physical therapy, cortisone injections, and surgery) the status quo has continued. Too many patients continue to suffer and are told they just have to live with the debilitating, active-life robbing condition. Research also shows the longer someone has shoulder pain and the greater the initial shoulder pain was when the shoulder pain suffer consulted a doctor, the poorer the outcome relative to recovery.

Luckily for patients with common shoulder pain and for those suffering with the even more debilitating “frozen shoulder impingement syndrome”, aka “frozen shoulder syndrome, Dr. Allan Oolo Austin, the developer of Trigenics® has developed a rapid cure using a special sequence of Trigenics procedures in a single-session non-surgical operation. Now a world renowned frozen shoulder expert, it took Dr. Oolo Austin more than 2 decades of clinical research to discover the underlying problem and true cause of most frozen shoulder impingement syndromes is related to brain-shoulder muscle miscommunication. In essence, the brain forgets how to use the various shoulder muscles sending improper signals to the muscles which control shoulder movement. An imbalance in the way the shoulder muscles control movement of the shoulder develops. Some muscles become weak with others too tight. This imbalance results in improper movement. As a result of the aberrant signals flowing to and from the brain, the painful loss of movement and weakness remains until the communication is re-established. Sometime remission will occur naturally, but usually not due to a downward deterioration spiral and if it does, the recovery is only partial, requiring the shoulder pain sufferer to cope with sub-optimal strength and function.
