Knee pain and injuries are among the most common complaint from most of our patients. There are many causes of knee pain, from cartilage damage to injury to osteoarthritis. Regardless of what is causing the pain, the most important aspect of getting relief is finding the source. Even after the source is identified, oftentimes people find themselves on a regimen of prescription drugs to deal with the pain. Most often, drugs just mask the symptoms temporarily and you may find that knee surgery or knee replacement surgery is recommended. Drugs and invasive surgeries are not always the answer. There are many alternative options through regenerative medicine treatments that are far less risky and help avoid long recovery times.
If you are living with knee pain or have suffered an injury and are looking for a natural alternative to symptom masking drugs and invasive surgeries, regenerative medicine may be the answer for you. Treatments using regenerative tissue uses highly effective cells to naturally heal the body. These cells, derived from Wharton's Jelly, have shown great success in repairing torn cartilage, healing strained ligaments and repairing damaged joints.
Injections containing regenerative tissue for knee pain
The use of treatments containing regenerative tissue in regenerative medicine for knee repair is effective due to the fact that regenerative tissue has the unique ability to transform into the type of cells the body requires to heal from injury or age-related degeneration. Our bodies naturally produce healing cells that aide in our healing process, however, as we age, so do our cells, making them less effective over time. Injections containing young, Wharton's Jelly derived cells offer quick, non-invasive, and effective results for knee pain.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is another available option for treating severe knee pain or injury. The platelets in our blood are signaled to activate by the body when an injury occurs. Once activated, the platelets are routed to the injured area that needs to be healed. However, as we mentioned before, the body's ability to do this slows as we age, that's where PRP comes in as an effective treatment. PRP is a process where a small sample of your own blood is taken and separated into concentrated platelet-rich plasma. The plasma is then re-injected into the injured area, this is a highly effective treatment option for getting you back to a healthy active lifestyle.
Knee pain can greatly limit one's quality of life as well as causing everyday activities to become painful tasks. Regenerative medicine has many options for getting you relief and back to enjoying life. Treatments containing regenerative tissue and Platelet Rich Plasma treatments have shown effective results in getting patients the relief they need without risky surgical procedures and without having to use prescription drugs that simply just mask the symptoms.
