KNAP Program

Get knee pain relief – no surgery necessary!

Do you experience stiffness or pain in your knees when you get out of bed? Are you avoiding activities you love just to avoid knee pain? If so, you may be suffering from osteoarthritis, also known as “wear and tear” arthritis.

Over 10 million Americans suffer from osteoarthritis of the knee. Athletes, everyday workers (especially those who spend a lot of time on their feet) and those who have a family history of arthritis can be affected. Until recently, extended relief from severe knee joint pain caused by osteoarthritis could only be attained through knee replacement surgery. Now, ICPR Family Practice offers an alternative to knee joint replacement surgery that helps limit the pain, not your activities.

Now the same great program is offered for the shoulder too!

Dr. Sumer Specializes in Pain Management & Osteoarthritis

Under the care of Dr. Sumer – a family doctor, ICPR’s Knee Arthritis Program (KNAP) is a safe, effective alternative to painful and risky knee replacement surgery. This knee arthritis treatment program combines hyaluronan replacement therapy to cushion and lubricate your joint with a personalized physical therapy program from our on-staff physical therapist, Doug Anderson, that enhances muscle strength and mobility.

Your physical therapist will also give you at-home physical therapy exercises that help reduce continued wear and tear on your knees, making treatment last six months – or longer – in many cases.
