Muscle and joint paint can be successfully treated without drugs and surgery!
Notice in the illustration above that there are multiple muscles and tendons that attach to each joint? These connective tissues can often be a source of pain that has been mislabeled as "arthritis". We have repeatedly found during the past 30 years that if we can successfully correct the joint movement and function, joint pain can be treated with outstanding results.
Dr. Kestner evaluates the function of the affected joint, the muscles that are attached to the joint and the nerves that may be involved. He then works to find a solution that will improve function and relieve pain. Dr. Kestner has received post-graduate training in diagnosis and treatment of injuries and painful conditions involving all joints. He has had many years of experience working with joint problems related to sports, athletics, work-related injuries, accidental injuries, chronic pain such as frozen shoulder or carpal tunnel conditions.
We have worked with joint problems in children, adolescents, high-school and NCAA collegiate athletes, Olympians and professional athletes. We also has worked successfully with countless senior citizens and others that have pain related to arthritis conditions.
With manual treatment, rehab, or acupuncture, the solution for most joint pain can be achieved. No drugs are used, so there is no risk of drug side effects. In all cases we work to avoid the need for surgery if possible. Patients are often very surprised to realize when pain that has been present for months or years begins to improve. Results will vary, but most patients begin to see improvement soon after beginning treatment.
