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 pain in the knees, 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.
PRP Therapy for Knee Pain
There is new hope for knee pain symptoms with platelet-rich plasma.
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.
Our clinic uses Platelet-rich plasma therapy 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.
