Published July 21st, 2023 by Dr. Sam Camarata

Knee pain can be a debilitating condition that affects millions of people worldwide. When seeking knee pain relief, individuals often encounter various treatment options, each with its own pros and cons

At Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness, Dr Sam Camarata is on a mission to spread awareness and help individuals and families get out of pain without relying on drugs, medications and surgeries! 

In this blog, we'll explore some common knee pain treatments, including corticosteroids, hyaluronic acid, cold laser therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), arthroscopic surgery, partial knee replacement surgery, total knee replacement, and osteotomy. 

We'll also highlight the unique benefits of SoftWave Therapy, which offers a conservative approach to knee pain relief with remarkable results in repair and regeneration


What is it? Corticosteroid injections involve anti-inflammatory medication injected directly into the knee joint to reduce pain and swelling.

  • Pros: Provides temporary relief, quick procedure.
  • Cons: Does not address the underlying cause, may lead to joint deterioration with long-term use.

Hyaluronic Acid:

What is it? Hyaluronic acid injections lubricate the joint and cushion the knee to reduce pain.

  • Pros: Can provide short-term relief, minimally invasive.
  • Cons: May require multiple injections, effects may not last.

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP):

What is it? PRP involves injecting concentrated platelets from the patient's blood to promote healing.

  • Pros: Uses the patient's own blood, may stimulate tissue repair.
  • Cons: Inconsistent evidence of effectiveness, costly.

Arthroscopic Surgery:

What is it? Arthroscopic surgery involves a small incision and the use of a tiny camera to diagnose and treat knee problems.

  • Pros: Minimally invasive, may be necessary for certain conditions.
  • Cons: Requires anesthesia, longer recovery time.

Partial Knee Replacement Surgery:

What is it? Partial knee replacement involves replacing only the damaged part of the knee joint.

  • Pros: Preserves healthy tissue, less invasive than total knee replacement.
  • Cons: May not be suitable for severe cases, limited lifespan of the implant.

Total Knee Replacement:

What is it? Total knee replacement involves replacing the entire knee joint with an artificial one.

  • Pros: Effective for severe knee damage, improves joint function.
  • Cons: Invasive procedure, long recovery period.


What is it? Osteotomy involves repositioning bones to shift weight away from the damaged part of the knee joint.

  • Pros: Preserves healthy tissue, may delay the need for joint replacement.
  • Cons: Limited applicability, not suitable for all knee conditions.

Cold Laser Therapy:

What is it? Cold laser therapy uses low-level laser light to reduce inflammation and pain.

  • Pros: Non-invasive, no downtime.
  • Cons: Limited evidence of effectiveness, current research states it requires 15 sessions to every 3 of SoftWave TRT sessions! 

Now, let's explore the superior choice - SoftWave Tissue Regeneration Therapy: The NEW Revolutionary Solution! 

Traditional treatments for knee pain often involve medications, injections, or surgery, which may not provide the desired results or come with potential side effects. SoftWave Therapy, also known as SoftWave Tissue Regeneration Therapy (SoftWave TRT), offers a non-invasive and cutting-edge approach to relieving knee pain.

SoftWave Tissue Regeneration Technologies OrthoGold is an exciting breakthrough option now available in the field of regenerative medicine! 

It is clinically proven, both nationally and internationally recognized and FDA cleared with a high success rate in clinical trials.

How SoftWave Therapy Works:

SoftWave Therapy uses supersonic electrohydraulic acoustic waves to stimulate and activate the body's natural healing process at the cellular level. 

These waves penetrate deep into the affected tissues, promoting blood flow, tissue repair, and regeneration by the way of stem cell activation and recruitment. 

By targeting the root cause of knee pain, SoftWave Therapy can provide fast and long-lasting relief.

SoftWave TRT benefits include:

  • Increases blood supply
  • Modulates inflammation
  • Stimulates, activates and recruits resident stem cells
  • Repairs, remodels and regenerates tissue
  • Reduces acute and chronic pain

Why SoftWave Therapy is the Best and Fastest Option:

  • Non-Invasive: SoftWave Therapy is a non-surgical, drug-free, and needle-free solution.
  • Targeted Treatment: The therapy precisely targets the affected knee area, delivering powerful healing energy directly to the source of pain.
  • Quick Sessions: Each SoftWave Therapy session takes only 10-15 minutes, and patients can experience noticeable improvements after just a few visits.
  • No Downtime: Unlike surgery, SoftWave Therapy requires no downtime, allowing patients to resume daily activities immediately.
  • Safe and Effective: SoftWave Therapy has been used for decades in various medical fields, and numerous patients have reported significant pain relief and improved function.
