Knee Pain Relief
Chronic pain in the knees can cause you significant discomfort and can even lead to disability. Swelling and stiffness, redness and warmth, instability, and an inability to fully straighten your knees are common symptoms. Our minimally invasive treatments accelerate healing to reduce or eliminate the need to take anti-inflammatories or pain killers.
Treatment Containing Stem Cell for Knees
Regenerative therapy is emerging as a safe option for promoting tissue repair for the repair of cartilage and meniscus. Stem cells enable your body to heal from within by repairing, restoring, or replacing damaged cells to alleviate discomfort. Stem cell therapy involves harvesting stem cells from your fat or bone marrow and injecting the concentrated cells into your aching knees. Injections containing mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors are not technically stem cell therapy but combines similar therapeutic properties for pain relief.
Injection of Wharton's jelly derived mesenchymal stem cells has been shown to be beneficial in the repair of injured cartilage because of the potential for differentiation into cartilage, bone, fat, or soft tissue. The minimally invasive procedure may potentially decrease inflammation, repair joint cartilage, and delay or avoid replacement surgery.
Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) is your blood plasma with highly concentrated platelets, sometimes five to ten times what is found in blood. Platelets are blood components that contain natural sources of growth factors, proteins and cytokines that stimulate the healing of bone and soft tissues.
PRP assists in cell repair decreasing inflammation, improving cell growth. PRP injections have been shown to reduce knee discomfort attributed to osteoarthritis.
PRP therapy also offers natural relief by assisting the healing of musculoskeletal tissues.
The procedure is suitable for treating common injuries and degenerative conditions involving the knees.
Causes of Pain in the Knees
Osteoarthritis, a degenerative condition caused by age and wear and tear may be the cause of your aching knees. Different forms of arthritis may cause knee issues such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and gout. Repetitive exercise trauma, ligament injuries, or even obesity also cause aches in the knee-joint.
