Power Over Pain: Knee Edition! Guest Dr. Keith DPT Demos Mechanical Stimulation – Knee Pain Relief

Filmed live at the Hive, Atlanta, Georgia, on August 12, 2020. Dr. Baxter and guest Dr. Keith Cronin DPT cover how to gain strength and reduce pain while you’re waiting for knee surgery. It’s important to keep moving & strengthen the surrounding muscles.


Strengthen the quadriceps with the help of VibraCool and DuoTherm by Pain Care Labs – Dr. Keith shows you how stating at approx min 9. Reduce swelling with the ice, stimulate the thigh muscles with vibration/mechanical stimulation to do your rehab exercises at home.


Ice v. heat: When to use ice? When to use heat? Ice reduces pain but reduces blood flow. Mechanical stimulation improves circulation – so the concern about icing/reduced blood flow disappears, only the benefit remains. Use heat (or vibration/mechanical stim alone) to warm up the muscles before moving.

Also intended to treat myofascial pain caused by trigger points, restricted motion and muscle tension.
