The best knee pain relief starts with finding and addressing the actual cause of your knee pain. Consider some of the common knee pain causes. Do you have cartilage damage, a tear in your meniscus or ACL, or is osteoarthritis making its way into your knee? Regardless of the source of the pain we will find the real issue and create a customized regenerative medicine treatment program to get you out of pain and back to living your life without the need for surgery or drugs.
We have many treatment options that have proven effective in relieving knee pain, including, but not limited to, regenerative medicine, joint injections, PRP, bracing and procedures containing stem cells.
These treatment options have helped many patients recover mobility without surgery or drugs, even after they have suffered for many years.
Stem Cell Therapy for Knees
Regenerative medicine is preferred over stem cell therapy for knees. The reason these regenerative cell treatments are so effective when used for knee repair is that they can grow into the exact type of cell needed to heal and rebuild after an injury or long term degeneration. The presence of these cells also reduces inflammation and can halt the advance of knee arthritis or osteoarthritis. Your own body grows stem cells but the older you get, the fewer of these cells you generate and the less effective your natural stem cells become.
To provide regenerative cell therapy for knee pain, we utilize what we feel are the most powerfully healing cells available, those present in umbilical cord tissue called mesenchymal stem cells. Carefully harvested, these cells bring the power of regeneration to aching knees. Your body can use these cells to repair torn cartilage, heal strained ligaments and actually regrow or repair the damaged joint space, cartilage and synovial fluid.
Other Knee Pain Treatment Options
- Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): The platelets in your own blood are activated whenever your body signals that it has been injured. We concentrate the platelets from a small sample of your blood and inject these directly into the painful joint. These cells then aid with needed cartilage and tissue regeneration. PRP is often administered in conjunction with stem cell therapy for the most effective results.
- Class IV Laser: When an injured area is swollen, it’s harder for cleansing and healing fluids to pass through the area. Our Class VI laser treatment reduces swelling and so accelerates healing and pain relief.
- Joint Fluid Supplementation: Knee osteoarthritis reduces that joint’s supply of lubricant, increasing pain and making it harder to move the joint. We use hyaluronan injections to restore lubrication and shock absorption to knee joints.
- Exercise and Lifestyle Counseling: Many people lack knowledge in the types of exercise and general activity that help strengthen muscles around the knee and prevent further damage. Educating them on how to sit, stand and move about is an integral part of preserving improvements. Dietary changes can help them reduce overall inflammation and pain.
