Knee pain is a common problem for many Americans, and it has a wide range of causes. We use our knees for walking, running, bending, climbing, and dancing, and the more active you are, the more you use your knees. Sports injuries often result in damage to knee cartilage or ligaments, and there are other conditions that can also cause severe knee pain, such as tendonitis.
Whether you’re suffering from a torn meniscus, runner’s knee, or another type of chronic knee pain, most medical clinics will typically offer only pain medications, physical therapy, or surgery as treatments. These methods only go so far, and they do not address the real cause of the pain.
Why Regenerative Cell Therapy?
Once a body matures, it does not have the healing powers it had when it was first developing. Adults do not have as many mesenchymal cells, not by a fraction, so healing gets exponentially slower as you age. A child can recover from a massive spill in just a few hours, when an adult suffering a similar fall may still be feeling the effects weeks or months later. By injecting these cells into injured sites, you are literally turning back the clock, from a biological standpoint.
Regenerative Medicine for Knee Pain
There is new hope for knee pain symptoms with regenerative cell therapy. Beyond merely relieving pain, cell therapy helps the body to address the cause—degenerated cells—by stimulating an actual regrowth of tissue.
For example, a torn meniscus can result from forcefully pivoting or twisting the knee, as in sports or even daily life. The older you are, the more the knees may already have degenerated, and you may be prone to this type of injury. A torn meniscus will give you a feeling of stiffness and pain, and it can even develop into osteoarthritis if left untreated. To prevent this from becoming a long-term condition, the real solution is to repair the damage at a cellular level, not just to treat the symptoms.
Regenerative medicine harnesses the power of mesenchymal cells, which are a part of the microbiology of your body. These cells transform into muscle, bone, tendon, cartilage, or ligament tissue, replacing the damaged cells.
A torn meniscus can be treated with regenerative cell therapy. This treatment is extremely non-invasive and consists of injecting these special cells into the injured area. This is a much more natural approach and can prevent further costs and further surgeries in the future.
Our clinic also uses a solution of Platelet-rich Plasma (or PRP) for a torn meniscus, damaged joints, tendons, ligaments and more. This plasma is taken from your own blood, so there is no risk of rejection. Inside this plasma are tiny growth factors that go to work rapidly, healing the affected area. In only a few treatments, patients can see a reversal of the trajectory of their condition.
