A plica is a fold in the membrane and this part protects your knee joint. Many people even have four folds in each knee. However, sometimes the plica becomes irritated. And this is called plica syndrome which is characterized by instability, swelling, and pain.
Usually, knee plica problems get better without surgery. While there are various medicines available on the market, we would recommend you to opt for our Red light therapy.
If you have plica syndrome, your knee is likely to hurt and swell. Also, it may lock, catch, make a clicking sound, or give way. People suffering from this condition say that their knees don’t feel stable. It really hurts when it comes to walking up or down stairs. The knees feel achy and this even gets worse at night or when you’re active. It also tends to hurt when you squat, bend or try to get up after sitting for a long time.
At Medano Medical Spa we use advanced devices for a red light or infrared therapy. Red light works by acting on the mitochondria of your cells. Thus, these cells can do their work more efficiently. These boost new cell growth and enhance muscle rejuvenation. More specifically, certain cells absorb light wavelengths and are stimulated to work.
Red light therapy increases blood circulation to the tissue reducing inflammation. Infrared lights are effective because they can reach deep into the skin. Red light therapy machines penetrate 2-7 centimeters into inner skin layers and reach muscles, nerves, and even bones effectively. The wavelengths ideal for treating inflammation conditions are 700 to 1,000 nanometers. The warmth we feel from the sun is actually infrared light. Infrared light does not contain any harmful ultraviolet radiation. After penetration, red and infrared light becomes absorbed by photoreceptors in our body’s cells and gets more energy and more healing power. Book an expert consultation today.
